Yellow sign outside Sarah Teather’s office breached planning laws
Brent Central MP’s landlord is now seeking permission
A yellow sign outside a Brent MP’s office was put up without planning permission.
Brent Council began investigating the allegation along with the claim that Sarah Teather, Lib Dem MP for Brent Central, did not apply for permission to change the use of the premises in April.
Her new office has been converted from a section of Craig Thomson Chemist, which is next door in Walm Lane, Willesden.
The council has recognised there has been a breach and the landlord, Craig Thomson Chemist, has now applied for planning permission.

Cllr Lesley Jones, Labour ward councillor for Willesden Green, said: “An observant resident pointed it out to me and it was reported to the council. There must have been someone in Sarah’s office who knew about planning issues.”
The council will only take action if it considers the breach will have a harmful effect on the “amenity of local residents or the character of an area.”
