Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

It seems that there is a company with a very similar name Articlus Ltd. which does architectural drawing and is based at 11 Woodford Avenue Ilford IG2 6IF.

Its director is named as Ahmed Munir Choudury. It appears to be linked in some way to Fridum Specialist Construction.

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The developer has assaulted people who have taken photos. All it would show is a grey hoarding.

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The local MP is taking this document up with the Labour leader of the Council, Stephen Cowan, who replaced him in the role. It is presumably now with Building Control at the Council, which has been told that the Developer has planning approval. That is not correct, but departments do not seem to spe...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Thank you Idefix for the complicated law report, which evidently went all the way to the Appeal Court. In this case the question of costs might not arise as the development company appears to be very short of funds. He has now produced an Engineer`s reported apparently produced by Articulus Ltd in m...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The Buddleia, now a sizeable tree, is growing in the wall of the studio that adjoins another property. It has damaged both the party wall and the street wall of the kitchen of the neighbouring property. The developer has now submitted his seventeenth identical planning application. LBH&F planners se...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The planners and lawyers at LBH&F have finally produced the minutes for the planning committee meeting, where the 16th set of near-identical drawings were unanimously rejected. They refer to Section 73 (sic) of the Town and Planning Act 1990. This states: Determination of applications to develop lan...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The LBH&F planners are playing games, at the developer`s expense. Even the developer has admitted in writing that all his DIY plans - replete with multiple errors - are identical, except for trivial variations. The bank is now closing down on him. And the bailiffs are looking for him. His compny has...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The Council lawyers do not understand Section 70 of the 1990 Town and Country Planning act. Nor do many of the Councillors on the planning committe. A proposal to use this to stop this farce which has lated over 3 years was tied, at the last meeting.

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The developer has had his sixteenth ( yes 16) planning proposal rejected on Appeal. This was his third appeal. All have been identical plans. In this case he submitted three simultaneously, one was rejected, one ignored and one approved by LBH&F planners. The ignored one has now been rejected as an ...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

That is an interesting idea. The people whom we believe to be bailiffs arrived early in the morning. From their clothing, had they arrived in the dark, they would have been mistaken by some people for burglars. They claimed to be "chippies" - a rather unlikely suggestion as they had no tools. The de...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

After discussing the appearance of these men dressed in new black overalls, with hoods, it seems likely that they are repo men or bailiffs. The developer has concealed his home address and has no office address. But he does give the Studio as the address for mail to his company. It has been stripped...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Thank you for that useful suggestion. Some unhappy looking carpenters have been round to the development site, looking for the developer. Apparently they had looked up Companies House and found the address of his development. But he has only rarely visited here. Actually the site is uninhabitable as...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

It seems that the developer has three consecutive loans of between £200,000 and £300,000 from three different banks. In each case he obtained a bridging loan for a period of twelve months. The money was provided to refurbish the studio. But he has not done that over more than three years. Instead he...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

The developer after having 15 similar designs rejected is now suing the council. The council is investigating misconceptions within the planning/enforcement/legal departments. Effectively matters are sub judice. So it is prudent not to comment further for a while.

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Councillors decisively and unanimously rejected the 16th planning application. A motion to seek legal advice on whether Section 70a of the 1990 Town & Country Planning Act was tied. The developer submitted three applications which both he and the planner conceded were very similar. One was ignored,o...
