The repercussions if you construct your property, not in accordance with the planning application.

Case No1

A family whose home could be demolished because it is 75cms too tall may have to fork out £200,000 for a replacement roof.

Stoke City Council received 31 objections ( compared to our 84) to the retrospective planning applications and seven letters in support.
Council planners recommended taking enforcement action which would lead to the house being knocked down.
