Broughton Astley shopkeeper ordered to remove illegal glass cabinet

A SHOPKEEPER in Broughton Astley who had an illegal glass display cabinet outside her store has been ordered to remove it.

Bhavna Kholia was told by Harborough District Council to remove the cabinet from outside her Station Road shop Ishka by December last year, because it didn’t have planning permission.

But, despite the threat of an injunction, the notice was ignored.

At Leicester County Court, the council was granted an Injunction Order by a judge requiring Mrs Kholia, under threat of imprisonment, to remove the glass cabinet by August 18.

The cabinet was removed from the site the day before the hearing. Footings and fixtures were removed on Monday (August 17).

The judge also ordered Mrs Kholia, who did not appear at the hearing, to pay £676 court costs.

Harborough District Council’s planning enforcement spokesman Coun Phil King said: “This court case sends out a strong message that anyone who willfully flouts planning laws will be dealt with by our enforcement team and, if necessary, by the courts.”
