Enforcement action is set to be taken after two separate breaches of planning permission in Sheffield.
Sheffield Council planning committee has been recommended to approve action against residents at a house on Westfield Avenue, Westfield, who erected a ‘hit and miss’ wooden fence over two metres high.
Planning officers said the fence harmed the character of the street and they want it to be replaced with a lower design with a maximum height of 1.6 metres.
The current fence exceeds permitted development rights, the council said.
Meanwhile, Javed Akhtar, owner of a property on Dundas Road, Tinsley, is to be ordered to remove a flue erected as part of plans to turn a shop into a hot food takeaway.
Mr Akhtar is also applying for permission to turn the shop into a takeaway but the council said the use would be ‘incompatible with residential surroundings’ and it would have a bad effect on surrounding residents.
