Freedom of Information Request

enforcement request reference: ENF/0157/19.

Received: 26 March 2021

I am writing you again regarding the enforcement request reference: ENF/0157/19.

From this request, I can understand that a decision has been made on 23rd of December regarding the following Unauthorised Building Works:

"Without planning permission the construction of netting surrounding a hardstanding with associated supporting poles and lights."
As of today, 3 months after the decision has been made, the configuration hasn't changed much and there is still a netting and poles and lights - picture attached.

 This is an illegal set up as per your decision, I am convinced the council has the power to act now that the decision has been made against this set up.  

On top of that, I would like to mention this exact same property owner, on the exact same address (16 Brampton Grove NW44AG) in now using the roof extension as a balcony which goes against his planning permission ref H/00082/14 which mentioned the following statement:

I have two questions:

1/When are you planning to enforce the landlord to remove his illegal installation of netting and poles and light?

2/Regarding the balcony, I cannot find any reference to this offence on your website, could you please advise of where we stand regarding this illegal installation?

I would like to remind you of Barnet council's obligation of action which should apply here.

I require you to provide those information to me, within the next twenty (20) working days, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and / or Barnet Council's administrative law obligations to provide reasons in relation to planning matters .
