Uxbridge homeowner who built illegal extensions ordered to pay nearly £10k in fines by court

A woman has been ordered by the court to pay nearly £10,000 in fines after she built an extension to her home in breach of planning permission and continuously refused planning enforcement warnings and notices.

Darshan Kingra has applied for and received planning permission for a single-storey side and rear extension to her home in Winsdor Avenue, Uxbridge. However it emerged last year that the work carried out at her home included two extensions, one which did not comply with the permission she was granted, and another which was completely unauthorised. Kingra, aged 49, had previously been in trouble with Hillingdon Council over an outbuilding in her garden. In 2015, the council had ordered her to take it down, but she refused. The council prosecuted her and eventually knocked the building down…

… Councillor Keith Burrows, Hillingdon Council Cabinet Member for Planning, Transportation and Recycling, said: ‘We cannot allow people to ignore the planning rules that are there to protect our borough and its residents.

We won’t hesitate to take similar action again if required.’
