Bog standard kitchen with TOILET fitted between cooker and sink

A council has ordered the demolition of a garden house for students after a landlord tried to beat planning laws by putting a kitchen in a toilet.

Landlord Tony Waite, said he built the annex, near the home in Cambridge, as a music room but converted it into a three-bed student let.

The concrete outbuilding has three bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom and stands just yards from the main house, a three-bed semi.

Horrified council officials have told him to demolish the structure but Mr Waite, 68, intends to lodge an appeal.

Mr Waite, from St. Albans, Herts, said: “The kitchen was temporary and was moved into the shed holding the toilet so the tenants didn’t have to all use the kitchen in the main house.

“I don’t know what the council’s main grievance is but I am disappointed by the decision.

“I intend to appeal and I will not let my tenants become homeless.”
