This morning received an email from the planning enforcement officer which recommends me to stop all further work on the site because my development is now considered unauthorised!
It is disappointing that the officer seems to be listening to my neighbour without giving me the opportunity to respond. Here I am trying to behave in a responsible manner and build a house which will improve the neighbourhood. I have consulted the neighbours and council at every stage and so I find this is very disappointing. I am trying to replace a tired inefficient house with one which will benefit the environment in line with council’s wish list and now I get mired in red tape.
Deep breath – regroup, smile and try to get things sorted.
