This fence is in contravention of the planning regulations, being well over 1m, and constitutes a safety hazard as it blocks visibility.

  • Nick Smith in the Planning Enforcement office has been tasked with this complaint. He attempted a site visit but was mis-directed by the Council complaints desk to 127 Alex Wood Road. He will be re-visiting the correct address asap, apparently.

  • The plannibg enforcement team decided that there was no breach of regulation, because the part of the fence at the foot path was only 10cm higher than permitted and would not take action. The eyesore will remain!
