Cafe owner wins extractor fan appeal against Stockport Council

A cafe owner who was ordered to tear down an extractor fan because the smell of bacon offended Muslims was celebrating a 'victory for commons sense' today.

But the mother-of-seven and her husband Cetin, 50, who is himself a Turkish Muslim, appealed the decision. After a six-month legal battle, the Planning Inspectorate finally announced they had won their case.

The council will now have to pay all of Mrs Akciecek's legal costs plus their own, which include the costs of planning reports, lawyers' consultations and meetings. All will be met by the public purse.

My comment: From what I hear the biggest stink in Stockport emanates from the Town Hall.
