Angry man as he wakes up to find a parking lot under construction next to his house
A man is furious at the construction of a ‘morally disgusting’ parking extension next to her house because ‘she is going to look directly into her bedroom and bathroom’.
Craig Turner, 53, says he thought he was ‘lucky’ to live in his home in Barnby Moor in Nottinghamshire for two years.
But his feelings quickly changed when he discovered the council’s plans for a parking lot right next to his house.
Mr. Turner woke up on May 5 to find a man in an excavator in the field next to his house.
“ I was not very happy and as you can imagine swear words were used when I asked him what he was doing and he informed me about the plans to build the parking lot, ” he told Lincolnshire Live.
Mr Turner, already angry with the parking lot running the length of his house, fumed as “ starting to get a feel for its size ” as the project continued.
In addition, the resident claims that the parking lot opens directly onto his master bedroom and bathroom.
“This parking lot could be built anywhere on the land, it doesn’t need to be built next to my property,” he said.
However, Danielle Elliot, who sits on the Barnby Moor Parish Council and also lives near the parking lot development, insists the project is not a problem for her.
She said: ‘If anyone was complaining about that parking it would be me like someone had to park and get out of their car, they would look straight at me and I have no complaints about that. ”
Mr Turner said he had complained to the Barnby Moor Parish Chairman on two occasions but was addressed to the council clerk.
He sent 29 questions to the clerk, who said his concerns had been noted and would be discussed at the next parish council meeting on July 14.
But Mr Turner believes it is part of the council’s plan to “block” him instead of dealing directly with him.
Barny Moor Parish Council said the plans had been authorized by the right authorities and did not legally require public consultation.
A spokesperson said: ‘The work has been discussed at parish council meetings since December 2019, if not earlier, which is an open meeting for public participation and various references in parish council minutes since then.
“It is a legal obligation that the minutes be published one month after the meeting.
“They are posted on the village website each month as well as on the Bassetlaw District Council website and have been made available in accordance with the regulations.
“Information was also published in the village bulletin.
