Do Hereby Grant…
We have our planning permission!! Hooray!
Never have 3 words sounded so sweet!
The letter is through and the planning permission has been offered.
Amongst the joy and celebration we have now decided to reapply for the 2 bed property. We now have something which can not be taken away from us but a 2 bed property would make for a more liveable and saleable property (which was our hope from Day 1)
A revisit of the plans shows that from what we have been granted planning on (which was intentionally a rather ‘well proportioned’ 1 bed property) we only need to increase the floor area by 4 meters squared to create the 2 bed property.
But whatever happens they can’t take what we now have away from us! Our little piece if unused land is now worth a bit more than it was yesterday!
So the next planning stage will take another couple of months but we have nothing to lose. In addition we have decided to utilise the service of a local planning consultant to give us the best chance of success. We do not feel that the slight change to what we have is anything too offensive but with a bit of expert advice hopefully it can presented to the council in a way in which they agree.
We will keep you updated but for now at least it is a time to reflect on where we have come from to get to this point. The relief you feel when you get that confirmation that you are heading in the right direction is second to none!
