Released by Emily Allen: EDT 07: 15 on October 10, 2012 | update: EDT 02:43 on October 11, 2012, a real estate developer was given six months to dismantle a secret house she disguised as a garage.
Carol Jones, 46, designed a plush pair
Multi-storey residence with two double bedrooms with separate bathrooms and a modern kitchen disguised as a garage workshop in her back garden.
She and her 46-year-old builder husband, Andy, built a 30-meter-high building in 2006, and they are building their bigger house a few yards away.
But the Malvern Hills District Council rejected the planning application, and Mrs. Jones appealed the decision, which was decided by the government planning inspectorate.
Earlier this year, the Planning Inspectorate upheld the council's decision, and yesterday she was given six months to dismantle the building.
Jane Stiles of the Planning Inspectorate told Mrs. Jones that she was "acting unreasonably from the outside" and desperately tried to "find holes in the system ".
She said the appellant had deliberately deceived the parliament.
It seems to me that the appellant has behaved unreasonably from the very beginning and that the retroactive case she has filed has evolved to the situation that suits her.
Mrs. Jones was given six months to remove its bathroom, kitchen and interior partition, which made it impossible to be used as a garage.
According to the ruling, MP Tony Payne, the district council planning and housing portfolio holder, said: the case should be a warning to others who believe that by deliberately concealing unauthorized development, they can get permission to go back. '
