Mr Uhdd and I have spent a chunk of time this week trying to understand what is, and what isn’t acceptable to the local planning department, we want to make some alterations to the house. The process seems to be a dark art that we have yet to master: time and money, we hope will provide the answer. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
I’ve been pondering why I selected this image to illustrate this post. It is I’ve just realised, that I believe, something in the region of 95% of the existing buildings in this area, would never get planning permission if the plans were submitted today. Unless of course you want an industrial development, now that is a different planning story, and one that can be told retrospectively.
