Gordon Bennett caught without permits

Inverness resident and former Sierra Club representative Gordon Bennett has had his Sea Haven home red-tagged by the county for illegal building, county code enforcement officer Cristy Stanley said.

Officials visited the property and issued the tag on August 3, noting that Mr. Bennett was attempting an unpermitted interior remodel and the construction of two decks.

A county official estimated that permits for similar jobs would cost somewhere in the neighborhood of several thousand dollars.

Ms. Stanley said Mr. Bennett or others at his property’s address were working on relocating a laundry room, remodeling a sun room, relocating a bathroom, and turning another bathroom into a pantry.

Officials met with Mr. Bennett, and sent an official letter notifying him of the violations on August 30. He must obtain permits by September 28, although Ms. Stanley said he is eligible for a 30-day extension.

  1. Ouch. That much remodeling would probably require a whole new $ 60,000+ septic system. Nobody wants to deal with that.
