Marquee extension enforced at wedding reception venue

The Yorkshire Dales national park authority has been successful in taking enforcement action against a marquee which had been erected as an extension to a grade II listed building used for hosting wedding receptions.

The grade II listed property had been constructed in the Greek Revival style and accommodation was provided in the main building with receptions hosted in a coach house within its curtilage. Although the coach house was not physically attached to the house an inspector agreed that it was definitely listed since it had close functional and physical associations with the main property. The marquee was attached using crude fixings and a plywood link which was a totally inappropriate addition, the inspector held. It caused significant harm to the heritage asset. The period for compliance was extended to six months.

Inspector: Anthony Wharton; Written representations
