A mum is calling on Fylde Council to get its priorities right after being told to lower or remove her children’s tree house.

Just hours after completing the structure at her home in Ribby Road, Kirkham, Miranda Cox received a shock visit from a council planning officer to be told the house breached planning rules.

The 45-year-old mother of Linus, 11, and Eve, 14, said she was stunned to be told the tree house was too big and urged council officers to concentrate their efforts on the impact of housing developments in the borough rather than a children’s play area.
