Wendy house?

Well maybe they shouldn't be putting up shiat on land they don't own, and then hiding behind their daughter.

They're just lucky the HOA didn't see the paint colors or else they'd have real problems.

We looked into getting a playhouse for my daughter for her fourth birthday.  Unlike these folks, we were going to actually put it on our own property.  Unfortunately, we have the unholy combination of overzealous building codes and a HOA.

Apparently, the playhouse we wanted to get for my daughter is considered a shed.  As such, I need to pull permits from the township and have a professionally poured cement foundation placed for it.  I'd need at least two inspections (not sure if there were fees for those).  That would satisfy the township.  For the HOA, I need to put in a request with the HOA, go before the board, and have them do an inspection before and after.

We got my daughter a bicycle instead.

I have to agree.  I don't see how the small house could be an issue but the trampoline is stupid. Trampolines attract kids like shiat attracts flies.  I would never have one in my yard unless I had a 10' fence topped with razor wire to keep the little shiats off of it.  All it takes is one kid breaking an arm or losing an eye on your property to put you in the poorhouse. It doesn't matter how many signs and warnings you put up.

The HOA might approve this one:

FTFA - A spokeswoman for Tandridge District Council said: "The trampoline and Wendy House have been placed on land which is owned by the council and should be available to all leaseholders to use.

If I built a locked shed in a public park, or even a shared yard, I'd expect people to complain.

No, you don't understand, it was a birthday present and she really likes it.

Considering the name they gave their daughter, these people are certain to make bad decisions.

THIS.
Really no different than gypsy squatters.  Council needs to act quickly and decisively, otherwise they might get squatters-rights if they were allowed to stay there a certain amount of time.  Stop spending money on stuff like that and maybe you can eventually afford a place of your own where you CAN build what you want.

So here's a question. If Brits call a yard a garden, what do they call a garden? I never think to ask my British aunt when I'm over to her house and now she moved to Texas.

Yeah, yeah. All's great until the neighborhood kids start disappearing because the playhouse turns out to be one of the cursed items that Uncle Lewis was selling.

In Britain as long as its a "tempory structure" (ie no foundations and can be taken down quickly) and you own the land then you don't need any kind of permits or planning permision.

Building a shed on public land will get you a notice to remove it (if you are lucky) or it will be demolished and you will get the bill.

/Its not your house if you don't own it
//This is the Councils house and the Councils land. You do what the Council say.

And we're done. They put up stuff on communal land, then actually had the gall to be offended when the folks who own the land said, "move it - we can't afford the liability."

The parents come off as entitled twats.

stuffy: Planning council that anything like an HOA?


I would say, not quite the same as an HOA.  The planning council appears to be the property representatives as oppose to elected neighbors who tell you what to do with your property.  In this story all the neighbors are cool with it, the property owners are not.  I am siding with the planning council, renters and leasers should consult the planning council when making any changes more involved than just painting the walls.  I own my house, I don't need to ask.

You said shiat twice.  You must really like shiat.

Someone please explain this land ownership arrangement to me--are people renting houses or apartments from the local government?  Has it always been this way in the UK, or did residential property pass from private to public ownership at some point?  Is this a vestige of feudalism and serfs not being allowed to own land?

It would appear the family lives in a social housing unit owned by the town council. Like most condominiums anything outside other than your porch or patio area is considered to be "common elements" and not for the exclusive use of any one specific tenant. Most landlords will not permit tenants to make modifications to their units (either inside or out) to avoid problems with liability, maintenance, consistency, and appearance.
