Planning permission in conservation areas...

Brighton & Hove City Council has issued an enforcement notice on a property at 33 Sackville Road, Hove after a brick-built storage shed "appeared" in the front garden without planning permission.

The property is in the Old Hove Conservation Area which contains many late 19th and early 20th century houses. Number 33 is part of a row of buff brick houses described in the conservation area statement as “a particularly good terrace.” According to the council:
"The shed is visually inappropriate to the historic street scene due to its setting, design and the materials used to construct it. Despite several requests by planning officers that the shed should be removed, owners Giuseppe and Sarah Colasurdo have so far failed to do, leaving no alternative but to issue an enforcement notice."
Councillor Lynda Hyde, chairman of Brighton & Hove’s planning committee, said: “The action shows that the council is committed to preserving and enhancing the city’s conservation areas. In this case officers encouraged the owners to remove the shed without the need for a formal enforcement notice to be issued but the advice was ignored.”
