Garden centre in planning row calls off appeal

A PLANNING row involving a garden centre is set to be resolved.

Rob Scott, owner of Hare Hatch Sheeplands, has withdrawn his appeal against an enforcement notice by Wokingham Borough Council.

An appeal hearing scheduled for May 13, which had been postponed from October, has been cancelled.

The council had claimed that Mr Scott was using green belt land to display and sell conservatories and greenhouses and had extended the café and children’s play area.

Mr Scott claimed that if the enforcement action went ahead he would have to close the business with the loss of up to 100 jobs.
