A row over a tree house has got so serious that the Deputy Prime Minister's office has stepped in to help settle the issue.
Anna Bennett, 11, got her dad to build her a 1.8m by 1.5m play house at the end of her grandmother's garden.
But a neighbour complained and council planners ordered Mr Bennett to pull down the tree house - but he refused.
Mr Bennett wrote to Mr Prescott for help who finally ordered a full public inquiry to decide who's right.
This means the tree house can be discussed by both sides in front of members of the public.
The council say tree houses should have planning permission but Mr Bennett is determined to fight his case.
"Tree houses have never needed planning permission before so this will provide them with an opportunity to state their case in public," said Mr Bennett.
The inquiry is expected to decide if Anna's tree house can stay where it is on December 15.
