Wembley resident faked council documents to evade planning regulations
Court hears her garden was full of derelict vehicles, waste and a caravan
A cheeky resident who faked council documents in an audacious attempt to evade planning regulations has been convicted in court.
Fatima Sharif, of Wembley Way, Wembley, produced the forgeries, purportedly written by Brent Council, to try and stop a caravan in her garden from being seized by town hall bosses.
The council had issued her with an enforcement order notice in 2007 banning her from storing the mobile home, several derelict vehicles and waste in her garden which was creating an eyesore in her neighbourhood.
Sharif appealed the notice where she produced a letter supposedly written by Brent Council granting her permission to keep the caravan in her back garden.

After the council took action and cleared her garden in March last year, Sharif tried to sue them for �80,000 in Willesden County Court.
She claimed that the vehicles removed, and later scrapped, had contained jewellery and other valuable personal effects and went on to produce another fake council letter which threatened and racially vilified her household.
