A RESIDENT of a small town was furious after their neighbor built a wooden house in the garden without planning permission.
Julie Buchanan uses this small structure as the basis for her dog grooming business, but not everyone on her street is in favor.
A neighbor complained it was generating extra traffic as customers queued up to get their dogs trimmed.
They also said that cars were blocking the entrance and idling on the streets of Blackridge, Scotland.
However, despite objections, the local council approved Ms. Buchanan’s application for a retrospective planning permit, as she had not obtained it before building the cabin.
She told the council committee: “I work three days a week and sometimes on Saturdays and it makes two cars every two hours.
“Customers give up” dog off and actually took two minutes, no one was waiting.
“Grooming can take anywhere from two to four hours, no one sitting outside leaving the car idling for that long.”
The dog groomer also claims that, if her application is denied, she will lose her job and have to fire an employee.
The committee approved her bid, with Council chair Steuart Borrowman saying: “It looks like an unpretentious unpretentious business has been endorsed by ten neighbors who have chosen to contact me.
“The reality of the modern day, delivery trucks come and go. It’s probably more of a traffic management issue than this business.
“Knowing how large the property and the garden are, I have no trouble with this.”
It comes after a woman revealed how their nightmare neighbor tried to tear down their fence during a bitter boundary dispute.
Meanwhile, devastated homeowners have discovered their newly built home is now worthless after splashing out £900,000.
