anyone had any experience in challenging a councils decision??

Found 15th May 2011
basically I have bought a house and have applied for a crossover. Out of the 11 houses on my row 6 have them.
I have had my application turned down because as of 2005 you have to have 4.5 meters from the pavement to the border of your house and I only have 4.m
Is it worth appealling the decision? I can;t locate any similr cases on the internet. My Mum thinks there is a law that says if other houses have it then that is a precedent but mu mum does tend to make up laws!
Any advise on tis matter much appreciated!
Thanks x

dropped kerb maybe?

Appeal state that you have the same rights as anybody else and you are equal, why should others have them in your area when you dont, also ask the other people with them when they got them and if it was after 2005 then ask the council why theres was accepted

The reason that 4.0 m is unlikely to be accepted is because many (even most?) are longer than this, hence when parked, you are likely to end up partially blocking the pavement.

how are you going to fit a car in under 4m of space?

sideways.......seriously though I think this is to do with a turning point on new driveways ie cars must enter the highway in forward gear

I'm sure you can appeal if they are being unreasonable but I don't think you will get very far unless other houses have had te same done

I would check with CAB they will have legal contacts and will give you an idea of the law in your area and if an appeal will be successful
