Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

No Hammersmith and Fulham defines this as a basement So why did the planner say this when he came to you if it had no bearing on the neighbours site. He believes that if there is a garden at the back, or a gulley at the side, it is not a basement - even when it is way below pavement level. . Btw af...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Well Hammersmith & Fulham does not allow double basements. The studio does not have a garden as it has filled the garden space. Its floor is already at the same level as all the basements in the same street, but the African developer has already dug down two metres below the existing floor. I do no...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Someone from Council planning also came to check the site. The Council has a clear-cut, but recent policy that you cannot excavate a second basement under an existing basement. But the planner did not know what defines a basement, although this borough has thousands. He believes that if there is a ...

Re: Neighbour's hedge

The Department of Environment are the prime controllers of pesticide use and the legislation applies to commercial AND domestic use. Even the use of salt is illegal as it is not an approved herbicide, and this is exacerbated by its use on somebody else's land. This is a long way from the OP and cut...

Re: When is your garden not your garden...?

Yes If you show the fence has been there 10 years or 12 depending on if it’s registered or not through satellite images you would have a chance of gaining it officially through adverse possession. Unless that is ,its highway and was fenced in without permission. However as it’s such a large amount o...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Chunga You are aware it is possible to dig down and create a basement under permitted development rights. Even in a conservation area Planning permission may not actually be required for the basement. Light-wells will I believe require planning permission but permission is normally granted for them ...

Re: Breach of planning on agricultural land

Thank you so very much for your comprehensive reply. It is an enforcement notice they have sent with a time limit of 28 days. But it is unclear how they want me to resolve the matter. I've trawled through lots of information but still no wiser. Yes, it would be very helpful to discuss this with you...

Re: Shared drive and maintenance agreement?

It’s the way things are done now and allows for a form of joint ownership of land under different titles as the developer does not want to retain ownership. You will probably find it has been set up at the land registry as common-hold land and you as owner of your property will have an ownership sha...

Devils advocate and I am trying not to pick sides. What I would be thinking to myself if I was in the OPs position If this got to court ,the route the neighbour may go based on his letter is. Due to the planning condition which came before the easement, the granter of the easement was not legally in...
