A Â£500 GARDEN shed housing children’s toys in an open-plan Paignton development has been refused back-dated planning permission by Bay councillors.
Grandmother Gill Smith, of Palace Gardens, Leighon Road, was seeking retrospective approval for the shed and fencing in her front garden.
Members of Torbay Council’s development control committee refused to give permission in a 5-4 vote and now she faces the prospect of council action to force removal of the shed.
Mrs Smith said after the vote: “We are going to lodge an appeal. I don’t know what is going on.
“I was surprised and shocked at the decision.”
The shed is a standard garden structure used to store equipment belonging to her grandchildren when they come to visit.
