Sheeplands takes a dip

SheepThe long running saga over Sheeplands garden centre at Hare Hatch seems to have a reached a sad but necessary conclusion.

If the owners were allowed to flout planing laws and build all sorts of extensions without permission, Wokingham borough council would have no answer when anyone else did the same.

So despite all the protests, this popular place has to come into line.

Barnet FC built their new stadium higher than planning permission had allowed but the cost of enforcing the rules was enough to deter its council from fighting it.

And you rather wonder how many other businesses have done the same a got away with it.
