Man fined £1,500 by Nottingham magistrates after he demolished 19th century building in the Epperstone Conservation Area
A man who demolished a 19th century building in a conservation area without seeking planning permission was ordered to pay £1,500 by magistrates.
William Lloyd, of North Park, Mansfield, was taken to court by Newark and Sherwood District Council and pleaded guilty when the case was brought before Nottingham Magistrates on Monday, November 18.
The court heard when a council conservation officer had first visited the site at Chapel Farm, Chapel Lane, in Epperstone in October 2018, the barn, which dated back to the early 19th century, was still standing but in the following month it had been taken down to the ‘eaves level’.
