A PLANNING appeal has been launched after Wiltshire Council issued an enforcement notice for ‘unlawful construction’.

Victor Levine of Henley Court Stables, Henley Lane in Box, near Corsham was accused by the council of creating a window and putting up a plastic lean-to roof at his property without the proper planning permission.

A spokesman for the council said: “The council considers it expedient to issue this notice having regard to the effect of the Works on the character of the building as a building of special architectural or historic interest and the said works are not authorised under part one of the act, no Listed Building Consent having been granted.”

The council ordered Mr Levine to remove the window lintel and wooden window from the building and block the opening with stonework to match the rest of the building, as well as remove the plastic roofing.

Now, Mr Levine has put in a planning appeal to keep his changes.
