flondrix: eggrolls: 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.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?

HenryFnord: Well maybe they shouldn't be putting up shiat on land they don't own, and then hiding behind their daughter.
TheGreatGazoo: meanmutton: 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.The HOA might approve this one:http://www.poshtots.com/play/posh/ultimate-posh/coral-gables-cottage -p layhouse/20/3034/1360/30777/poshproductdetail.aspx
