Hello Gail my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are the containers causing any sort of hazard or health risk please?
But the Council have said they can't do anything?
Thanks Gail. Its bad news I am afraid - unless he is breaching some law then there is nothing you can do.
Council have said there is no planning issue. I assume there are noise, smells etc coming from the containers which means you do not have any action to take under the Environmental Protection Act.
This leaves a right to light - if its blocking light you could have a claim.
However planning permission will only be for a certain period of time, when he has to complete it by. If he does not then and only then could the Council take action.
But sadly that is your only option. I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I am sorry its not better news. I really am, but legally you are stuck.
Can I help with anything else this evening?
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
