You can find the officers report on this document, starting on page  31.  These are the reasons for refusal:

About the author, admin

  • If they are unauthorised they should not be there in the first place, forget applying for planning permission…although 6 months grace ….. Watery Lane will have flooded during the winter rains [EDITED]

  • Jim, simples, we live in a country where no minority group can be called to account or critised. Anybody doing so is immediately accused of being racist and hauled before the courts or vilified by Guardian reading do goody liberal lefty mung bean munchers.

  • As for being given six months grace because of the baby due – I don’t think this is anything exceptional; there are hundreds of other planning enforcement cases in our district , and I imagine that most of those take 6 months or more to be sorted out.

  • This country should introduce the same law as did the Republic of Ireland…make trespassing a criminal offence. Our police could then arrest people who decide they want to illegally occupy land that does not belong to them. It’s not a problem when do goody lefty luvvies turn up to defend them, simply ask the “travellers” to camp out in their Islington back garden……
