Unlawful activity in an area of outstanding natural beauty

Melanie acted for the Respondent in respect of a planning prosecution involving an appeal against an Enforcement Notice, which required the Appellant to cease using residential land for business purposes, remove a number of vehicles from the site and return it to a condition appropriate to an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Melanie’s representation on behalf of the Respondent was successful and the Appellant, having been found guilty in the Magistrates Court, was unsuccessful in appealing to the Crown Court and subject to a substantial fine.
