Mum ordered to pull down son’s shed

The Evening News reports

A young mother has been told she must pull down her son’s playhouse after a council said it breached tenancy rules.

Kelley Brickley says her five-year-old son Ryan will be distraught to lose to playhouse in their garden and argues it is somewhere for him to stay out of the way of the neighbours.

However, Norwich City Council is threatening to remove the wendy house-type shed as the garden at the rear of her home is a communal area used by four flats, some of which are rented from the council while others are privately owned.

Miss Brickley, of Springfield Road, Heartsease, said: “Ryan plays in there and not on the street so it’s a good idea.

“It’s right up the end of the garden and in nobody’s way.

  1. As much as I like sheds, if the garden is communal you have to consider all. The mother was cruel to put a shed there when there was a good chance something like this would happen. If she is too stupid to realise something like this would happen what’s she doing having children?
