One over on the authorities good for them
Family who built secret house in woods without telling planners can't be evicted because they've been living there for more than four years
A family that built a secret home in the woods - where they've lived for the last four years, have won their right to stay. Daniel and Jessica Brown, together with their three children, have been living in the house concealed behind the trees near the village of Westcott, Surrey, without the authorities knowing. Regulations state that The Browns, who moved into the woods off Logmore Lane in September 2007, cannot now be forced to move out given the length of their stay.
