A millionaire businessman has been ordered to make amendments to his new £300,000 “beach hut” after he apparently built an upper-storey sun deck without planning permission.

West Dorset District Council has issued an enforcement notice against car designer Simon Saunders after he failed to keep to the terms of the permission granted for the new chalet at West Bexington overlooking Chesil Beach.

The property was controversial when originally approved as it was much larger than the neighbouring 13 chalets, which have stood in place for more than 70 years and which can sell for up to £340,000.

Planning permission was granted for the new chalet in April 2007 although it was only as building work developed that residents noticed its scale.

West Dorset District Council then asked for it to be painted in a sensitive colour to help it blend in with the neighbouring huts.

But the latest addition of a folding flap to reveal a second floor sun deck has prompted further complaints.
