I made a Freedom of Information request in relation to the tent at the dockyard.
There is no record of the Authority having made any enquiries of its own planning department either prior to, or after, erecting the structure.
After two Broads Authority members, and various members of the public, reported the tent as a possible breach of planning control, a planning officer visited and reported that the tent was definitely there, and being used.
That was the documented extent of the planning investigation and enforcement action taken by the BA in relation to this tent.
Compare and contrast with our tents at WRC, one twelfth the size and present for one eighth of the time, compared to the BA’s tent. Numerous emails demanding details of their construction, size, etc, 2 site visits and a report to the planning committee before they had even determined whether to take enforcement action. Which is a breach of their own Enforcment Plan and National Planning Guidance.
