Planning breach man fined £10,000

A PLANNING violation has resulted in a West Cumbria man being hit with a £10,000 court bill.

Terence Augustine Fowler breached a Copeland District Council enforcement notice last year by failing remove a residential caravan from agricultural land near Whitehaven within a specified time.

The 56-year-old also failed to restore the same patch of land to its previous condition.

Fowler had denied the council’s allegation but was found guilty of committing the offence after a trial at Carlisle Crown Court.

The case was adjourned, and Fowler attended court to receive his sentence.

Recorder Michael Murray imposed a £4,000 fine, and ordered the payment of £6,118 costs.

Fowler, of Mill Street, Frizington, was warned that if the money was not handed over he could face a three-month prison term.

As he left the courtroom, Fowler announced his intention to lodge an appeal.
