CL7.k This policy is unreasonable. The Local Planning Authority does not have the statutory power to control matters relating to structural stability of either the subject or adjacent properties. These matters are already controlled by alternative legislation including but not limited to: x Building Regulations x Party Wall Act x Health & Safety Act
