East Cambridgeshire District Council’s Planning Committee took the decision to authorise the Planning Service to arrange the demolition of an unauthorised building at Sappers Rest, Mepal.

The building was erected without planning permission and a retrospective planning application was refused.

After all other avenues of negotiation were exhausted with the applicant to secure its removal, an Enforcement Notice was served on the building as it was expedient to do so and in the public interest.
