Reader Pamela from Michigan U.S.A says
Here in DeWitt, Michigan U.S.A. we have a rule prohibiting sheds. Some people have built sheds and the homeowners association is suing them in court to make them take the sheds down. How pathetic is that?
Sheds were banned in this area near Lake Geneva in DeWitt, MI (not to be confused with a larger place called Lake Geneva in Wisconsin). The developeer who set the rules decided that there could only be two structures on each property–a house and attached garage. It makes no sense to me. Some people have their lawn care and gardening equipment in their garages and then park their cars in the driveway.
If only we hadn’t dumped that tea into Boston Harbor–we could all be British and we could all have sheds!
Do you have any issues or comments about rules and planning issues?
