Nicole Farhi and the importance of garden office planning permission

The perennial issue of planning permission has been highlighted in the media with reports that former fashion designer (now sculptor) Nicole Farhi is having a conversation with her local London council over the building of her garden office studio.

It appears that the replacement for the dilapidated orangery in her back garden may have been built slightly larger than was agreed (around 18 inches taller and around 3ft wider) - and what the papers like to call 'council chiefs' have said it needs to go following local residents' complaints that it is huge, ugly and overlooks their property. Ms Farhi is appealing the decision by Camden Council. As always, a good first stop for information on planning issues is the Planning Portal. --------------------------------------------------------------------
