[Others.039] Dispute Between Neighbours

Found this on the internet, quite interesting...


Dispute Between Neighbours - this is a true story...

A town councillor in Wales , Mark Easton, had a beautiful view of the mountains, until a new neighbour purchased the land below his house and built a new home.

The new home was 18 inches higher than the planning dept had approved, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the local authority to make sure they enforced the roof line height.
The new neighbour had to drop the roof height, at great expense.

Recently, Mark Easton called the planning dept, and informed them that his new neighbour had installed some vents on the side of his new property.

Mark didn't like the look of these vents and asked the planning dept to investigate.

When they went to Mark's home to see what the vents looked like, this is what they found...

The Local Authority said the vents can stay since there is no planning law referring to shutter design....!

Ha! But... I don't know if it's true, as I don't think that means the same thing in Wales as it does here!

Did a quick search.. it IS true, but not in Wales. It's in Utah!
