This is a weird one, not that these people took a punt on making their shed into a holiday cottage without planning permission, but that the BA lost the appeal. Isn't this exactly what planners are there to stop people doing?

I'm off to turn my  shed into a hotel. $$$

Hello All
Our mower and wheel barrow have to pay for their board and lodging by helping out in the garden. I'm sure somebody will wan't business rates from us for that one day. Mind the older they get the less busy they are.

If a little cottage conversion gets refused by the BA, how on earth did the monstrosity at Hunsett Mill get passed a few years ago?????

Perhaps because I like the package at Hunsett! As indeed do some others!

But equally I like the restored Mill which was an integral part of the deal!

As ever planning matters divide. We all have personal tastes on such issues.

My personal view (and it is only that) is that garden projects like the one in the article should be pretty much allowed to everyone that wants to do them. Subject of course to stringent quality control (no ramshackle dumps).

But then I have long been a critic of our stupid planning system. We need to open it up dramatically with a central planning system. That needs to remove local nimbyism along with parish, district and county councils from the process.IMO A set of liberal criteria should be established centrally that all areas would be obliged to follow.

The only way to give younger people a chance home wise is to reverse the current supply and demand tilt by making a lot more homes available. This will of course affect the older generations perceived wealth and shift some of it to their sons and daughters.
Also taxing the hell out of the buy to let brigade and multiple home owners would also help. Freeing up masses of "first time" houses. As I own three homes that would include me.
Houses should be "homes" not "investments".

So we started out talking about sheds and I got on my soapbox and sorted the housing crisis? Talk about thread drift.

Some 10 years ago or more ago the government wanted to move planning to the "Regional Authorities" using Local Plans as the basis for passing proposals or not but then "Localism" became the trend.At the same time every development had to be within 500m of a 20 minute frequency bus route which would prevent almost all rural and semi rural locations happening - present maybe the quiet dropping of that requirement opened the door to the  wholesale removal of bus subsidies over much of the country though Norfolk remains reasonably unaffected at present.I do note that the Labour Conference this week has flagged up the loss of rural bus services (unfortunately this will of course leave the tories more convinced that they are right in taking away that support to less well off country dwellers)

Gotta agree with Harlequin - the planning system in this country is most defintely in need of a shake up in the way he suggests,  and for the very valid reasons he mentions.

Now there was I thinking that the government were simplifying the planning system but it seems now I have to go cap in hand even for the smallest of changes.
