It has been a long and windy road up to this point. I bought the plot in February 22 and have had over a year of ecology surveys, useless solicitors including the county solicitor and a few changes of plans along the way before planning was granted earlier this year.
The old house which was formerly housing for workers on the fruit farm had been used as site offices for a national house builder. When the builders left it looked like they just finished on a Friday and locked up and went home. There were 30 odd chairs and several desks in there. The filing cabinets were full of the site paperwork and then the kids had moved in and spread the contents around to make it look like the inside of a plasterers van.
Finally we got the green light from the ecologists on Monday morning and with the help of have moved straight on to the demolition stage. I am enjoying this bit. 😀😀😀😀
