Something new to know

Further to yesterday’s blog, here are the answers….

Is a fish farm a farm?

Yes, the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) classifies fish farms as ‘Aquaculture Production Businesses’ – all of which must be authorised in advance and licensed or, in some specific niches, registered. Further restrictions are placed on fish-farms within National Parks.

Is a bush a tree?

No, a bush is not a tree. A tree is distinguished from a shrub in the following ways: a woody perennial plant, typically having a single stem or trunk growing to a considerable height and bearing lateral branches at some distance from the ground. A tree can be subject to planning control.

However, If a hedge (made up of either a tree and/or shrubs) adversely affects the owners/occupiers of an adjoining domestic property then they may be able to take action through the High Hedges complaints system introduced by the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003.

Can a telephone kiosk be a listed building?

Yes, because English Heritage have over 2000 telephone kiosks listed.

That only took me an hour to get the answers….Not good at doing homework at 35. Now I know what my 8 year old daughter feels like.
