Prosecution for Failing to Comply With a Notice Requiring the Tidying Up of Former Royal Observer Corps Bunker Site Roding Valley Nature Reserve Chigwell

At Chelmsford Magistrates Court on 28th June 2018 a  prosecution was brought by Epping Forest District Council against Mr Raymond Sturgess of Stanford Court Waltham Abbey for failing to comply with a Notice served on him under Section 215 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 requiring him  to remove building materials, waste, household items plastic items , plastic and card from the former Royal Observer Corps site which were adversely affecting the visual amenity of the area. The site is in the Roding Valley Nature Reserve  adjacent to the M11 motorway and which had been bought by him in 2015 

 

Mr Sturgess pleaded guilty to the offence of failing to comply with the Notice served on him on 13th February 2018 which required compliance by 16th March 2018.

 

The Magistrates fined Mr Sturgess £200 and ordered him to pay £200 towards the Council’s prosecution costs together with the statutory victim surcharge of £30. (The fine had been reduced by one third due to Mr Sturgess pleading guilty at the first hearing and also taking into account his current financial situation. The maximum fine possible was £1,000)

 

In mitigation Mr Sturgess told the Magistrates that due to unforeseen circumstances of injuring his knee he had been unable to comply with the Notice. He stated he was renovating the underground bunker for use by his children but vandals had gained access to it last year. He also blamed fly tippers for the state of the land. He would be using a quantity of the wood on the land to construct a high fence around it and would hopefully being doing this in the next few weeks.

 

The Magistrate told Mr Sturgess that they did not accept everything he had told them and they thought he had had ample opportunity to comply with the Notice.

 

Future failure to comply with the Notice renders Mr Sturgess liable to further prosecution with a possible fine of up to £100 for every day from 28th June 2018 that he does not comply)
