PROSECUTION OF MARK SMITHSON -FAILURE TO RESPOND TO NOTICES

Mr Mark Smithson is the owner of Burrs Farm Foster Street Harlow Essex but which is within the Epping Forest district.

 

Separate investigations are being carried out by the Council’s Planning Enforcement and Land Drainage officers in respect of the land.

 

On 24th July 2018 a Planning Contravention Notice was served on Mr Smithson requiring him to provide details of the various activities taking place on land and in buildings on his land. On the 16th August 2018 a Notice was served on him requiring him to provide details of the land ownership in connection with a large amount of soil that had been deposited next to a watercourse on his land.

 

Mr Smithson failed to respond to those Notices in spite of being given reminders and prosecution proceedings were therefore commenced against him. Mr Smithson failed to attend at two hearings in Chelmsford Magistrates Court and on the second occasion on 2nd May 2019 the Magistrates agreed to deal with the matter in his absence.

 

Mr Smithson was fined £750 and ordered to pay costs of £297.50 for the Planning Offence (maximum fine possible was £1,000.00). For the Land Drainage offence he was fined £2,000 and ordered to pay costs of £382.50 (maximum fine possible was unlimited)

 

Mr Smithson continued to fail to return the Notices following his conviction despite requests from the Council to do so and therefore further prosecution proceedings were commenced. Mr Smithson attended at a hearing in Chelmsford Magistrates Court on 24th October 2019 and pleaded guilty to the offences. The Magistrates imposed the same fines and costs as before bringing the total amount to date which Mr Smithson is liable pay for failing to return two forms to the Council to £6,660.00
