I built a tiny shed in my parking space & was told it would be okay…but I've been ordered to tear it down – I need it | The Sun

A FORMER nurse has been told to tear down a tiny shed built in the parking space outside her home.

Dot Slater, 83, insists she needs the makeshift shack to store her mobility scooter in Colwyn Bay, north Wales.

Grandma-of-three Mrs Slater has claimed a member of staff running the site told her it would be fine.

But estate managers Emeritus Homes have now written to tell her to remove it, Wales Online reports.

The letter stated residents had complained about the outhouse.

Mrs Slater says both she and a neighbour need the shed to store their mobility scooters.
