In 2002 I built a shed in my backyard for storage, it is 10m x 6m. At the time I was told I did not need a building permit unless it was going to cost over $5000.00. It cost me less than $3000 to Build. I did not get anything in writing and I cannot find what the councils requirements back in 2002 were anymore. The notice I have been given refers to the Building Regulations of 2006, The shed was built before this time.It states that any building over 10m2 requires a building permit. In the demolition order it also states that once the building has been demolished, I need to submit in writing for the order to be cancelled and pay a $550.00 processing fee. In the past two years, I have had to deal with a few council departments that have been questioning what happens on my property, such as being told I cannot park a truck on my 2 acre property unless I get planning permission to run a business. I was helping out a neighbor by letting him park his truck there a night. We stopped parking there after they threatened me with a $700 per day fine for not having a planning permit. I feel that the council is just causing trouble for me. My main question is, can I fight the council under property law or do I need to pull down my much needed shed?
