*Fisherman's Friend tycoon who built a 30ft lighthouse in her garden could be ordered to tear it down*
Daniel Farrand, planning lawyer at Mishcon de Reya says this is a reminder of the importance of obtaining the right permissions
A millionaire who built a 30ft lighthouse in her garden could be ordered to take it down due to lack of planning permission.
Commenting on the story, Mishcon de Reya Planning Lawyer Daniel Farrand said:
"It is a reminder that planning extends to all forms of development, not just new housing basements and offices. In the absence of any permitted development rights which may apply, building anything in your garden - a folly, art installation or 'granny flat' - without the correct permission always runs the risk of enforcement or a need to gain retrospective consent."
