Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

Good morning. I own a flat that is situated above a cinema, arts workshops, meeting rooms and bistro. The cinema have applied to extend by Building on the council owned car park.
The council I understand we’re are the ultimate landlords and were involved and built the cinema and flats ? ( not sure where the freeholder was involved in the the build process) The freehold was changed within the last few years.
I only found out from a friend that the cinema was extending. I spoke to the planning officer who advised that letters were sent to the occupiers in December 2018 with a request that it be passed on to the landlord. Unfortunately my property will now have reduced light, suffer from the rooftop garden, bar and of course there is a security risk as the balcony is likely to be accessible from the rooftop bar .
The council contact me at my address for all other matters . It seems inappropriate that the council’s obligations are satisfied by sending to the occupiers.
Any views regarding the council’s obligations would be much appreciated.
