UK Docks – Breach of Planning Permission

Not only has Condition 2 been breached but Condition 5 has been breached as well.
2. The development to which this permission relates shall be carried out in complete accordance with the approved plans and specifications.
5. No works, other than the launching or beaching of vessels, shall take place within the shelter between the hours of 7pm and 7am Monday to Saturday and not at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays unless any written consent of variation is previously given by the Development Corporation as local planning authority.

Condition 1 has not been breached within the letter of the law but the foundations were laid in 2001 so that condition 2 was technically in breach from then on.
Condition 3. No work shall commence on site until full details, including samples, of all external materials and colour treatments have been submitted to and approved by the Development Corporation as local planning authority. A minor material consideration.
Condition 4. No works shall commence on site until full details, including drawings* and sections on a 1.20 scale, of the means of attachment of the mono-flex end panels to the roof and the main sites of the shelter and to each other to ensure:-
a) that the ends of the structure are fully enclosed when works are being undertaken and hence that there are no emissions of over-spray particles to the surrounding environment.
b) that the mono-flex panels arc fully secured when no works are being undertaken to prevent any flapping of these panels in the wind.

* Condition 4 – the details included a drawing 8296/14 which finally put paid to the fiction that the enclosure was built to plan – condition 2.

One thought on “UK Docks – Breach of Planning Permission”

  1. Council avoid face to face meetings about UK Docks non-compliance with planning permission.
    Called at the Town Hall to check that a complaint has been registered about Sunday working and not about noise and the ‘front’ desk quickly established that handling breaches of Planning Permission was a Planning matter and not an environmental matter. The Case Officer was around but ‘unavailable’.
    Another planning officer was asked to come down the front desk to help me. She did not come down to help me but and directed me over the phone to Customer Advocacy.
