Tomtom, whoever drew up the dimensions wants badgering until he/she kindly tells you where to obtain a shed of the precise dimensions given. Start with the chairman of the PC and get him/her to put you in contact with Mr/Ms SmallShed. Then phone and email and hassle politely until you get some help. I am a councillor in my village and I believe that we are there to represent and help the people who elected us, not to be awkward and obstructive!!!
Edit - I cannot believe the irrationality of someone who says you can't even have a smalller shed!!!!!!!!!! I think you should go to the local press and tell them your woes. It's completely ridiculous behaviour by the PC.
Ah FloBear I'm not one to back down, I shall be going down to the PC on my next day off to have a chat, I'm sure they would rather I buy a well made shed then attempt to build one myself lol. Thank you for your advice, sounds like some good ideas there
HI ,My allotment rules are much the same as yours, in order for us to get permission to have an allotment we had to sign a contract that the plot would be only for 11 calendar months and that no permanent structure be built above 5ft and No poly tunnels or Greenhouses except small tomato grow houses /cold frames would allowed .I think the Parish council are worried that there would be a haphazard amount of jury built sheds creating an Eye-Sore
I get where they are coming from clogherhead, and fully understand I just think it is unfair that they will only allow the dimentions given with little flexability, esp when the sizes are not standard and would have to be custom built.
Further on it states the excate colour and product needed to preserve the shed (and there was me going to paint it all the colours of the rainbow jk lol)
