MM BALCONY 030113

Former Bishop of Rochester Dr Michael Nazir-Ali’s home in The Ridgeway, Chatham, with Jamie and Nicola Beadle’s home in the background. See MASONS story MNPLAN: A couple have been ordered to take down their balcony after a former Bishop complained it invaded his privacy. Jamie Beadle, 44, and his wife Nicola, 38, spent more than £5,000 putting up the 10ft-high wooden decking at their family home in Chatham, Kent. The father-of-three spent months fitting the decking and claims he was in regular contact with the Medway Council over the development. But now the Beadles have been told to take the balcony down after their application for retrospective planning permission was rejected.
