We all have to abide by planning applications that’s life.

To a certain point I agree with you, however, when backhanders are involved and people who are 'upper class' who apply for retrospective planning permission for huge extensions and get it (without a hitch) then I feel a bit of jobsworth coming on. It's six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Rules are great as long as they apply to everybody equally. 🐞

Can't say I'm surprised about this at all. Personally I think they should have the right to alter their home as they like as long as it doesn't effect others or access and is safe and reasonably presentable but those aren't the rules.
