Specifically, how many times over the last six years has the Council taken enforcement against grass and required its removal from land.

Dear John Mawdsley,

Many thanks for your reply. It is very odd that I have copies of planning enforcement notices requiring removal of grass from areas of the district. I have made an application to the Council under the planning acts to have the growing of grass in the district identified as lawful. I have seen pot plants in your offices. The application should also make these safe from your planning enforcement function.

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS
