Re: Re: Planning Permission for Roof Terraces
So, you’re sitting in your office, wondering if the phone will ever ring again, when someone calls to say that they’ve made terrace use of a flat roof at their house, and they now have a great sea view and view of the next door neighbour’s garden, and the council have served an enforcement notice. You advise them to either stop using the terrace or to seek retention permission which they do but fail. They appeal to the bord and fail there too. I think (but am not certain) that once you’ve applied for permission you surrender any claims you might have for exemption. Do you think you have advised them correctly? We know that’s what Parka would have done.
