Re Lee’s Application: LT 1996

There was a proposal to erect a detached in house in the grounds of a property subject to a ‘one house per plot’ restriction. The tribunal considered the issue of disturbance: ‘I do not think that the prevention of a short term interference with the enjoyment of [the neighbouring house] by the stopping of adjoining building works can be a benefit of substantial value or advantage in relation to the long term enjoyment of the property (see Re Kershaw)’
