Father loses playhouse fight
A FATHER-OF-TWO has lost the battle to keep his daughter’s playhouse after a neighbour complained to the council.
Council chiefs ordered Brendan Burke to take down a two-storey playhouse that his children Tilly-may, six, and Ameliarose Burke were given by their uncle in May.
The family, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, had been forced to submit a planning application following an anonymous complaint about it.
Mr Burke, 27, had
28 days to make his case before North Lanarkshire council demanded it be taken down. The family will not appeal.
