Notice vetoed on parking and storage confusion

An inspector has overturned an enforcement notice directed against parked vehicles at a house in Surrey after finding that its allegations were fundamentally misconceived.

The breach of planning control alleged in the notice was the creation of a mixed use comprising a dwellinghouse and vehicle storage. However, it required the appellant to discontinue parking more than six vehicles.

In line with Crawley Borough Council v Hickmet Ltd and Others [1997], the inspector noted a clear legal distinction between vehicle parking and storage. He felt unable to correct the notice's requirements to refer to storage without causing injustice.

Inspector: Kevin Nield; Written representations
