Grove Farm - Latest News
Tonight’s Parish Council meeting received two reports on the long-running saga of planning applications for Grove Farm in Middle Road.
The first covered the outcome of a prosecution of the owner of the site for failing to comply with enforcement action. This related to his failure to cease unauthorised residential use of one of the buildings at Grove Farm. Last week the Crown Court in Norwich found the owner guilty and awarded costs of £3,500 to be paid by him to South Norfolk Council.
Now appeals are being made to the Regional Inspectorate against enforcement notices regarding residential use of part of the central barn on the site without planning consent. The Council agreed unanimously to make strong representations opposing the appeals.
