      Planning Permission For Satellite Dish

      Recently I found out that planning permission for a satellite dish is required for those people whom live in conservation areas. I wonder if Sky are aware of this when they are installing euipment to new customers.

      I only found this out last week after a high delivery lorry went down the back lane and knocked my dish off the wall. The firm wont pay for the damage so I'm in the process of taking them to the small claims courts.

      are they using the planning thing as a defence?

      The firm is using this planning permission as their sole defence, meaning that the dish shouldn't have been there, so i contacted my local MP and he said that the delivery firm have not got a leg to stand on because even without planning permission the dish was there and the lorry driver caused the damage.

      I had to pay Sky 179 for a new dish so this claim is worth fighting for.

      they will probably back out once you issue the claim

      It will more than likely cost them more than that to defend it - solicitors aint cheap

      To defend a County Court summons they have to have a clear cut case, if it is not the Judge would rule in your favour.

      The only way they could defend it imho is to say it was not them that did it.

      Plus they would have to appear in person or send a representative, even if they ask for the case to be transferred to another court, if it was nearer to them, then you could claim for your reasonable costs to attend.

      Try not to worry about it, it probably wont get that far.

      That's the good news, the firm has admitted liability to knocking the dish off the wall, but they seem to think that they can win because of the planning permission that is required.

      Not only do I want my 179 back but I also want the 30 it's cost me to put forward the claim to the County Court.

      Hopefully when the firm sees that I'm not backing down then they may bottle out and pay up.

      Once they receive the summons, i take it you have written to them telling them?

      Give them a reasonable amount of time usually 14 days, then on the 14th day go to moneyclaim online and do it from there.

      Once they have the summons you are probably aware they have 14 days to respond, or 28 days to put up a defence.

      Once thay have the summons, they would be silly to proceed. If they do hit em where it hurts and good luck.
