    Who's Land?

    You must be able to show that you comply with the Council's planning policy. Thus, your proposal should work well in townscape terms, respecting height and building lines and should respect the corner location. If some green space around the side flank could be retained that would be good.

    The Council might try and restrict you on amenity terms - they might feel that the area would be worsened... we have a case similar to this on at the moment, whicdh we are fighting!! Maybe bring in someone like me in to fight your case...??

    I would generally say that as long as no harmful effects are being created it would be OK... but I of course haven't seen the site and details!!

    As long as the car parking space can be well screened again, why not?? The car should be able to exit in a forward position...

    It all depends on the quality of the proposals, which should be adequately communicated in your planning submission.

    Is that OK for the moment??

    Buying house + land to build another

    I am looking to buy a semi which is on the end of the row and is next to the road. The plan being to try and get permission to put another house on the end, effectively turning mine into a terrace. I got a copy of the plans from the land registry site and it would appear that there is space - it also shows an additional segment of what appears to be a public green also belongs to the proprty. The council do not cut the grass or maintain it as far as i know but the footpaths appear to be adopted and give access to all the houses.

    1 - Any feelings with regard to sucess on tagging another house onto the semi
    2 - What do you feel the chances are of changing the use of our section of green to say include a parking hardstand?

    Any feedback or opinion would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Carl

    I made a complaint to the ombudsman which was successful. My council was really annoyed as they had refused to show me a copy of a document and the Ombudsman forced them to send her a copy which she forwarded to me.

    Hi All, I could really use some guidance in a matter relating to the above. We were told by our agency handling our property that we needed to obtain a licence through the council. I did my research and asked all the relevant questions and found out that the licence will cost 650 for five years. Sounds...

    In this case I would ask a Chartered Town Planner, Don't contact the council apart from looking on their Planning Portal

    I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

    There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

    The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

    The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

    Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

    It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
    Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

    You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

    No not too late. We had the same situation for our three holiday lets.

    We pressed the installer to register the new boilers with Gas Safe who in turn send certification to the local Building Regs which is what they are supposed to do upon installation, assuming they are qualified and 'Gas...

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?
    I currently rent out 2 properties and own

    Thanks for the advice all. I've had 2 boilers replaced by different installers over the last 6 years, but not received a Building Regulations Certificate from either one. I didn't ask the installers about it at the time as I was unaware of the need. Although they did provide Gas Safe Reports as requested,...
