Sarah Teather, Brent Central MP, is accused of failing to seek consent to install yellow sign outside her Willesden office
Sarah Teather, MP for Brent Central, has been accused of not applying for planning permission for a big, yellow sign outside her new office.
Brent Council is investigating the allegation along with the claim that the Liberal Democrat politician did not apply for permission to change the use of the premises.
Her new office has been coverted from a section of a chemist.
Ms Teather moved to her new office at 70 Walm Lane, from Willesden High Road, at the end of last year.
