A Co Armagh father and his son were fined a total of £300 at Armagh Magistrates’ Court today for failing to comply with a Planning Service Enforcement Notice.
John Mervyn Winter and his son Jonathan Mervyn Winter of Derrycrew Road, Loughgall pleaded guilty to non-compliance of the Enforcement Notice which required them to remove unauthorised mobile homes from a site north west of Derrycrew Road, Loughgall.
John Mervyn Winter was fined £200 and £95 costs and Jonathan Mervyn Winter was fined £100 and £95 costs.
The defendants have since removed the mobile homes, however this was outside the time specified in the notice and an offence had been committed.
