Council prosecutes man who left caravan parked on his own land

A man who left a static caravan illegally parked on his land has been prosecuted by Wrexham Council.

Paul Trevor Martin was fined £1,298 at Wrexham Magistrates Court for leaving the caravan on land at Fenns Moss in breach of a Planning Enforcement Notice requiring him to remove it.

He was warned he could face further prosecution if he now fails to remove the caravan promptly.

Councillor Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Planning and Public Protection, said: “This prosecution highlights the importance of following planning rules, which are there to help protect the local environment and communities.

“Our planning team is always keen to work positively with people and provide assistance to ensure regulations are followed.

“However, we take breaches very seriously and officers will not hesitate to take enforcement action – including prosecution – where necessary.”

Amazing his own land his own caravan, I recon if he had half a dozen illegal immigrants housed in it the council would have payed him to keep it there.
Typical British council hypocrisy, “
if they can’t make money out of it then you can’t”
Environment & committees more BIG BROTHER.
Shameful in the modern world
