  1. Does anyone know of a source of door lining kits for 89/90mm planed CLS door openings in my MBC house? Needs to be approx 120mm depth to accommodate plasterboard and skim. In online and builders merchants they all seem to be 115 and 138mm deep. Wickes do one but out off stock (and reviews report they're well bendy!) They need to be 838mm wide and 2058 high (2'9" by 6'9" in old money) I know there'll be a carpentry work-around but it'b be convenient if there was an off the shelf thing Dan

    This is reassuring, Peter. I'd be happy for them to just leave me alone, But in practical terms I do need the condition signed off, along with the pre-occupation conditions before I can move in etc. So there is some leverage they have. How would I force/encourage them to discharge condition in this circumstance?

    This may be good advice. I'm concerned that getting arsey with them may just worsen the problems/slow things down They do have quite a lot of power Where is the JSHarris letter template to be found? (this would have been useful a few weeks back)

    Hi Ferdinand. Does this approach carry any legal planning weight? This particular PO routinely takes several weeks to reply to emails but does seem to be a stickler for correct process. In hindsight I should have sent the deemed discharge notice on 21st Dec to take advantage of the 2 week lull in activity

    I thinks that's what I'll have to do. It remains unclear what the sanctions are for this breach. They haven't even asked me to put it right! It's in South Bristol Bishopsworth area. I'm not going to slag off the excellent planners we are blessed with here. They maybe stalking this forum (he said paranoidly)

    Thanks for this After repeated emails and phonecalls the Planning officer has sent this response; Dear Dan, I can’t really help you any more with this as I am not an arboricultural officer. Kind regards,.. Doesn't really shed much light on what happens next!
  7. I wondered if a cable-free solution was feasible. I've got 4 kids who presumably would need to access my mobile data supplied. Do you get some kind off house hotspot with it?
  8. I need to sort this out at some point soon. Is BT/openreach the only option for this, with a long term line rental? Are there better options? I don't really need a landline, just decent speed broadband, via an underground cable. I haven't investigated what is available nearby (south Bristol)

    It did include a board but I basically forgot to put it in

    D'you mean get on with the build, or get on with re-doing the tree protection thing (which will involve some more cost)

    The Hera went along the edge go the tree/root protection area, so profanely only 10-20m of this. The tanalised timber was supposed to be at the bottom

    That all seems senisible, Peter. The question is really what the LPO will accept or require. I used heras fencing whch was OK'd (though I have to move it a couple of times as it didn't exactly fit the plan. There was supposed to be an edging of timber. Its along a 30m driveway and the trees are about 1m away from its edge

    I ommitted some tanalised edging so the stone has strayed towards the trees. The concrete does encroach on the edge of the RPA, and you're right, it could be removed. The photo I submitted shows the membrane and cellular confinement stuff in situ, but I didn't get a pic of the clean stone in it as this happened and was covered by temporary crushed stone for the access path whilst I was at work. I didn't think I'd need evidence of every stage. The original arboricultural officer who specified the plan emailed to confirm it was done to standard, (he's now retired) but the councils tree officer/LPO appears to have disregarded this. I think technically it probably doesn't conform strictly and I'm already on the back foot a bit having proceeded without getting it signed off initially. Its frustratingly pointless exercise as the tress are old an at end of their natural life. I have planted 40 odd other trees elsewhere around the plot

    I'm assuming so. The point of the pre-commencement condition was to prevent tree damage, so I wondered whether there'll be an implication that damage has occurred...

    They responded about day 10 after the deemed notice + sent round tree officer next day. I suppose my question is about how these problems are usually resolved?
