Council Gets Court Order To Pull Down Buildings

Thursday December 15 2011




A THREE year legal battle about some outbuildings developed in Cudworth without planning permission came to an end yesterday.

Barnsley Council said action was taken at Cadwell Close, Cudworth on (December 14) to remove a number of structures after it successfully won a court order.

The council went in to the property to remove a stables extension, hardcore surfacing in front of stables extension, corrugated sheet fencing and a shed.

Coun Roy Miller said: "The removal of these structures at Cadwell Close, which were constructed without planning permission, is something that Barnsley Council has been working for approximately three years. It has been an important issue for local residents and ward members.

"In carrying out these necessary actions the council was fully compliant with the court order.

"I would like to thank staff from highways, planning and regulatory services for their hard work, as well as our partners at South Yorkshire Police who provided support."

Maybe the people can sue the council now for endangering the animals and wasting "OUR" money.

Nobody should just be able to build where they want. Gypsies or travellers have nothing to do with this ( no they cant do it either). Tough its Xmas but if they hadnt done the building then the council and tax payers would not have wasted precious time and money on selfish people.

Why do people blame the council?? The people that illegally built the stables stc are the ones to blame, I hope the council have given the bill to the idiots.
Why do some people think the law does not include them?

Why build without planning approval in the first place??  I found Barnsley planning department were a fantastic help when I was constructing my stables. At the end of the day, break the law and suffer the consequence.
