Blundering planners rebuked for wrongly allowing milllionaire to build monster beach hut on World Heritage Coast

Now the Local Government Ombudsman, Dr Jane Martin, has found West Dorset District Council guilty of maladministration causing injustice Council officials merely rubber-stamped businessman Simon Saunders' application to demolish a timber chalet he had bought for £235,000 on the Jurassic Coast and replace it. Blundering staff only realised that the new hut was twice the size of the original, dwarfing its neighbours, when it was half built and residents in West Bexington, Dorset, complained.

  • Of course the solution would be to grant permission to all the other huts to build the same height and style. Then you’d have a neat row again, and everybody gets a bigger hut. Win all round.

  • Boohoo.

    The planning system would not allow any to be built these days.

    It is like the system is designed to cement Britain into the 1950’s

  • I am surprised anyone would want to pay so much for a shed on the back of West Bexington beach. It might be part of a World Heritage Coast, but West Bexington really isn’t very nice at all – you can’t even go swimming there safely because of the notorious Chesil beach undertow. Not a place I’d like to live, even if I had a quarter of a million to spare. The words fools and money spring to mind.
