A HOUSEHOLDER could be told to remove a boundary fence that was put up without planning permission.

Members of New Forest District Council are being recommended to reject a retrospective application relating to a bungalow at Hobson Way in Holbury.

A report to councillors says: "The close boarded fence, which has a harsh appearance, is already in position.

"It is in a highly visible position, being located on the back edge of the pavement at the junction of Hobson Way and Crawte Avenue.

"As a result of the excessive height, position and harsh appearance of the fence it is considered as a prominent, incongruous and over-dominant feature within the street scene that appears totally out of keeping with the area."
