Portacabin storage without planning permission

Sent to Derbyshire County Council and Erewash Borough Council 4 minutes later

Several portacabins are stacked two high and being stored adjacent to my garden, blocking the natural light to my garden and property and putting it permanently in the shade. These portacabins also have a significant detrimental impact on the visual outlook from several Wentworth Street properties.

Rayden Engineering Ltd does not have the necessary planning permission for this type of storage on the particular piece of land the portacains are being stored on and the company is also in clear breach of conditions of operation which restricts stored materials in this particular location to 2 metres in height. We would like our natural daylight back and appropriate remedial action taken to remove this offensive visual intrusion in accordance with planning legislation.

I have uploaded a photograph of this storage without planning permission.
