Formation of canopy to side and rear elevations and associated boundary treatments. (Retrospective).

The applicant has installed a very unattractive canopy across the rear of the dwelling. The materials (plastic roofing sheet on timber) look cheap and by their very nature temporary. The new fence appears to be an improvement and may have been erected to ensure the canopy is not visible from the neighbouring properties. We suggest that a site visit is essential for safety reasons to ensure the timber supports are adequately founded and will make this unattractive structure fit for purpose.
