OT- planning permission for advertising hoardings 12:55 - Oct 12 with 806 viewsWatford_Ranger

Hi,

Hoping I can delve into the LFW knowledge pool.

I've recently moved into a new build ground floor with a garden. The developer is still selling off various flats in the development and they have just constructed an advertising hoarding about 8 feet high (and above the bushes on the perimeter of my property) surrounding my garden.

Firstly, do they need our permission given the size of the advertising which is a bit of an eyesore and is lit up in the evening. Secondly, given so far they've ignored our very polite requests to have it reduced to a smaller size, what can I do legally should it come to it, as I expect it to be there for a few months?

Thanks in advance

Standard hoarding height . If its a building site or empty properties on the other side you might struggle to get them to lower it. Legally i would imagine they have the right.
Id suck it up for a few months. Its winter anyway, your not having bbqs out there..

Look after your broom...

Depends on what it says in your lease.

Haha exactly, then set fire to it. There's no police left so legality is academic.

Check planning permission with the local authority and then read your lease (presuming you're on a long lease). While you're at it, you should check the ground rent provisions as many developers have been running a scam that doubles ground rent every x years which will make the lease worthless before expiry.

Poll: Come on then, let's have it.

Sooner rather than later your developers will probably try to sell off your freehold to investors, and circumvent your Right of First Refusal.
So make sure you've investigated getting a company together with the other residents to buy your freehold.

I have to admit the shift from someone being pissed off about an 8 x 4 of plywood at the feet of his garden to that of having to form a company with Bazza at the helm (sorry mate!) is possibly a bit of a surprise to Watford?
Anyway, Power to the People and remember not to cook food above a fire made from wood with preservatives etc impregnated in it, just doesn't taste great......

Thanks for all the above. Think I'll go with the drawing a cock option to avoid setting my garden on fire.
