Q: Planning permission was granted in 1991 for a menage, pole barn/field shelter and a hay/straw barn. The hay and straw barn has recently been built, but its siting and configuration differ from the approved drawings. We have threatened enforcement action as the site has been subdivided and the very small plot still owned by the applicant is inadequate for the horses that justified the original permission. The applicant has submitted a retrospective application. His agent claims that the 1991 permission was commenced by building the pole barn/field shelter and the hay/straw barn could therefore be rebuilt in accordance with the 1991 permission, so little benefit would be achieved by securing its removal. Is he correct? JM
