I am just finishing a tentative celebratory tipple to toast our new-found planning permission.
Ten minutes ago I found an email from the architect saying he had checked the planners’ website and it says that permission has been granted for our house.
We haven’t had any official confirmation or contact from the planners, hence the tentative celebration, but hope is renewed.
Here’s the page where the magic words ‘permission granted’ are written. Ive saved it here for posterity (click here for link)
