Live onsite in a caravan ? Where would I put it ? No we'd rent elsewhere... Why do you ask ?

No, Grand Designs isn't Property Ladder - they don't give advice. They just films idiosyncracies in great detail....

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but, if I'm thinking of buying number 14 Tewkesbury Avenue, should I be thinking again? Unsure I'm away for the next few days, or I'd go up there again myself to check if a three storey place would block the view (can't remember which number is opposite no 14)...

And is this why number 14 is on the market at a price that's been dropped once already?

IMHO, I suppose it depends entirely on your outlook
(of life). :-)

This 'grand design' is apparently still just a massive hole in the garden and Lewisham council are looking to take enforcement action for breach of planning conditions, see http://councilmeetings.lewisham.gov.uk/i...2890&Ver=4

Nope, no enforcement action happened. Bit of beurocracy to win at to get to that point, but nothing to a man who overcame a JR to get to this point. All in order. Legal. Legit. Damn recession delayed all this work, but that is now over. I can't wait to build this house !

Now the old garde from this street is long gone, there have been a number of very nice architectural extensions completed and near completion in this road, and so 11TA will just add to them. Now I'm not leading, I'm following....

Best of luck with it doml - it's been a few years since I was along TA but from my last encounter, the entire street was crying out for some TLC.

Is Grand Designs still on the cards?

I feel vindicated, Frank Lloyd Wright ? Now someone else has taken that literally and actually gone and got planning permission for it, in Ringmore Rise. I am a happy man.

Woohoo, it's as I thought when I moved from Canary Wharf : Forest Hill is going to become a millionaire's paradise, and we're all going to benefit off the back of that !

As someone still bearing the scars of wounds from Dominic Lewes, I notice that the work on his ‘dream home’ has apparently not begun, let alone been completed. All I can say is Thank Heavens. Anyone wondering why should google Dominic Lewes or The Gentleman Construction Company. No wonder he’s keeping his head down

As a general point, some people purchase a property and then decide to apply for planning permission. Had it with neighbours either side. First lot had four applications, that would have doubled the size of the house with no consideration of the impact on neighbours, then to only eventually sell up with their unused granted planning permission/permitted development, their huge architects bill circa 20K, and hopefully feeling rather wounded and foolish after all the wasted time and money applying and the wasted time of neighbours objecting to the plans. Then to leave with nought.

The other herberts applied and first that was known was when a letter from the council was delivered informing me of their planning application, nice that, they didn't bother informing their neighbours. So the neighbour levelled the rear garden by raising one section, causing ongoing drainage issues when it rains. Again the neighbour applied and was granted planning permission, only to sell up and move on without using it.

Seems some people have more money than sense. I guess the moral of the story is if you want to apply for planning permission/permitted development, talk to your neighbours, let them know what you want to do, listen to any concerns they have and be willing to compromise for the sake of good neighbourly relations.
