Silly bastards. You'd need permission for a building of that size, whatever it is for. There's no special exclusion clauses written into the law for wendy houses, for fuck's sake. These are national laws, and there is no flexibility for it to be waived by the local authority on a case-by-case basis. If they did, they'd have these things springing up all over the shop.
By the way, what is all this shit about a planning officer walking around their garden without permission? If they've put in an application for an extension, the officer has to visit, otherwise he can't judge whether to grant permission, can he you twonks? What were you expecting to do with the wendy house had you had more prior warning? Paint it in camouflage colours and hope he didn't notice?
Put in the planning application and STFU.
But their country house is worth a million pounds. Doesn't that exempt them from having to obey silly things like the law. Or perhaps they are going it live in it when that nasty Mr Cable brings in his "hated" mansion tax.
