Today the council came out to our property (there'd been a complaint by a nasty neighbour who wants to make trouble for me). That's when i learnt that its illegal to live in a caravan. I told him this is just my bedroom. Which is essentially true since i am using the bathroom and kitchen elsewhere on the property. I told him that i can't afford any other sort of accomodation. He seemed sympathetic. But its not in his jurisdiction so that may count for nothing. He said normally the council doesn't pay much attention to these sorts of things and its only when a neighbour complains that htey do anything about it and enforce the law. I have no idea what will happen here. If they make me move out of my van, I will have to move into a tent. They know that too as i told them so. Has anyone any ideas of what i could do. I've only thought of going to see my local member but i would rather not have to do that. I am addressing my neighbours complaints which is about the sight of my van. I don't want to have to move it and i certainly don't feel she has a right ot make me move it either. She knows that. I am putting up screening. What else can i do? She's just being a cow. So what to do with the council if they make life hard for me? Any advice?
