Landlords are not architects

"The design seems woolly."
Landlords in Manchester are facing fines for extensions to student properties in the Fallowfield area.

Twenty properties in three streets in the student area have had UPVC box extensions bolted on the rear at first floor level. The craze hasn't gone down too well with the local planners who are now threatening fines of £20,000 a property if the architectural zits aren't popped.

I'm not sure what Kevin Mccloud would say, but in terms of aesthetics I'm with the planners. It's dangerous when landlords start to knock up bright ideas on the back of beer mats with their mates.
