Watch out if you put a windbreak up around the Bristol area, the windbreak police may be upon you!
The Guardian recently posts about a family’s day out that is ruined by over zealous officials who claimed their windbreak was a semi permanent structure and broke local bye laws. They were ordered to take it down. Have you ever heard of anything so silly. Here was this poor family with a guest from Spain hiding from the British weather when along comes a jobs worth with a clip board and knowledge of the sub sections of the local bye laws and ruins their day. To what end?!
I never knew windbreaks could be against the law and the naughty boy in me wants to go and put some up just to challenge this ridiculous rule. Apparently, the offending bye law doesn’t specifically mention ‘windbreaks’. It mentions tents and other structures, but not windbreaks.
Anyway, I will let you know when clandestine operations will commence.
