I'm making the first of attempts to build a detached shop on my property. I'd like a 36x27 on a peice of property that's 240' x80'. They're telling me that I must keep 60% of my yard open for animal use. They refer to it as paka. Primary animal keeping area. Slope is not counted , only flat area. Most of my backyard is sloped. Basically they're trying to only let us build tiny buildings and keep non horse people outta here. First question is can they legally do this? I'd bought this place solely because I wanted a shop on site at home to play boats. Secondly they want a 3400$ filing fee!! Is this normal far as fees go on new buildings ? No water or sewer going to this building.
