We’ve been following with interest on this blog Sir Paul McCartney’s run-in with local planning authorities. As reported on the BBC’s web site here, he will be allowed to keep his wildlife viewing pavilion - originally built without planning permission - on his East Sussex estate even though he was told last year to take both this and a wooden lodge down. Planners now seem to have granted permission for the pavilion if the lodge is demolished. So perhaps the moral is that you should build two illegal sheds in the hope that the local council will let you keep one?
