A MARCH businessman has been ordered to move his mobile home from an industrial park after being told his presence creates "unsatisfactory living conditions".
Government planning inspector Nigel Burrows said he recognised his decision would interfere with Paul Ayres' human rights but "this consideration must be weighed against the wider public interest".
Mr Burrows dismissed an appeal by Mr Ayres against an enforcement notice served by Fenland District Council which stops him living next to his sheds business at Norwood Road Industrial Estate.
The inspector said juxtaposition of homes and businesses on the site could cause problems for occupiers of both the new and existing development, and there was a clear risk that could be the outcome of providing a mobile home on the estate.
He rejected security reasons for allowing Mr Ayres to stay.
Mr Ayres must move quickly to stop council enforcement officers forcibly removing him.
