enforcement to supply hedge/fence to define land

Post by hartley44 » Thu Jul 23, 2015 2:13 pm

Can an enforcement officer make you put up a hedge or fence to define the garden land from a paddock that joins it? Is there a specific ruling that I can read to see if we can leave the land area open. We do not use the paddock area as garden, but we do keep the grass cut down? Can they slap an enforcement on us to do the work? We have nothing in our planning permission(built house and took 2/3m to extend curtlege all passed in planning) stating we have to put up defining fence/hedge. Please advise where I can get more information. Thanks.

Please don't post multiple threads about the same subject. People rightly find it annoying.

As it is part of the planning consent they are entitled to insist but unless the type of fence is specified they cannot determine what sort of fence - it can be as simple as posts and wire. The height also cannot be controlled, subject to 2m requirements, unless that too is stated so as little as 300mm would then be OK

If you apply for planning permission the council can grant it and impose conditions that they deem reasonable in order to allow the development to go ahead . If they do impose a condition and you perform the development that the planning permission was granted for they can enforce the condition if you do not comply with it. That condition will also last forever unless it is time limited or you apply to have it removed or varied.

If they have simply come along and said hey you need to put a fence up to define the boundary between the two types of land ,you don't have to comply.

Hi all,

this thread is a near copy of one the OP started the day before.

I think it would be best if we all stick to posting on the original only:
