Unauthorised development in Lightwater


Monday, 7 October, 2019

We are aware of an unauthorised development in Lightwater. The Council has obtained a High Court Injunction relating to activities on the land and are awaiting to hear whether this will be subject to an Appeal by the landowner. 

There is understood to be a dispute as to the landownership, however the terms of the injunction aim to prevent the current registered owner as well as occupiers and persons unknown from certain unpermitted activities on the land.  

At present the site is under continual review and the Council is presently engaged in talks with the landowners agents in respect of compliance. The Council reserves its right to enforce the terms of the injunction if it is considered to be in the public interest to do so.
