The Council have emailed me about the outcome of this planning application:

Location: 43 Mount Pleasant Crescent N4 4HP

Proposal: Retention of bicycle store in front garden and proposed boundary treatment / vegetation


Permission has been granted - phew!  (I seem to remember there has been considerable fuss about this particular bicycle store).

  • Bit confused about this - what exactly was the problem? Are we talking about a bike store on the street or in someone's front garden?


    • 10223012479?profile=RESIZE_400xThis is in a front garden - it seems a bike store is classed as a 'permanent structure', and you need planning permission to build one of those in a front garden. But parking a car there is fine! Yet the owner was told that he didn't have priority for a place in a council bike hangar, because he has a front garden, so could store it/them there! Neighbours objected to it (conservation area), otherwise the Council might not  have picked up on it. Here it is:

      There are calls to change planning rules to make it easier to have cycle sheds in front gardens.
