Building Work.

Property owners need to obtain a Bornement from the parish Constables to erect a ‘building’, or re-erect one, on old foundations within 1.5 metres from any public road or way.
The expression ‘building’ includes any well, cistern, cesspit, cellar or other excavation below surface level (whether containing a structure or not) and also any wall, hedge, fence or other surface structure serving as a boundary or otherwise. This will also include applications to demolish a section of the roadside wall, making good the wall ends and creating car parking areas.

If your work is within 1.5 metres from a public road or way the necessary bornement can be obtained from the Constables at a cost of £25. Please write to the Constables detailing the work to be carried out and if the work has received planning permission please include a copy the approval from the Planning Services Department.
