Private Eye has reported that at least three families face losing their newly purchased park homes in Wooler, Northumberland because they were built without planning consent.

Northumberland county council says the Bridgend Park site has only permission for 75 mobile homes but Wyldecrest has put up four more.

The local authority has served Wyldecrest with an enforcement notice, demanding that the four homes be removed and the land restored.

Wyldecrest is appealing.

Wyldecrest is also involved in a battle with Havering Council. After a failed appeal last year to the Planning Inspectirate, they have until December to remove eight homes built illegally in green belt land adjacent to the park site.

Mr Best maintains that he is wrongly criticised, that park homes provide much needed affordable homes.
