That's interesting and bizarre in equal measure!

I've never seen that wording before (thankfully)

Where we are, if you submit the application online it is validated within a couple of days but normally the application received date.  Once validated it cannot be undone.

Don’t talk to me about fecking planners!!!!

and me 

 tempting to start  crowd funding  for a hit on the local planning officer .LOL

 I know it would be over subscribed in a day by all the local builders .

 and enviromental health is not much better ,

 not as though they had an excess of staff before --and to cut them down to 2 days working is a joke --

we really need a salomonella outbreak to go with the corvid  

 

 been trying to get my water (house supply)tested for 3 months now - and sepa tell me no -go to council

All I get is --"we are too involved with corvid " and labs do not have time 

 so as pubs and eating places are now open again  water testing should be working again

My late father in law lived on our plot fir many years and drank the ground water (not aquifer) and it contained iron and arsenic and he lived to a ripe old age 😳

Just looked and the “water testing plus £129” tests for arsenic but as you say the premium £249 appears  not to. The “plus conforms to ISO 17025 which from my tinternet search is the water standard required by the authorities “

There's a few consultancies that can test the private water supplies - some local authorities don't do it the tests for new supplies, dm me if you need any contacts...

 

and if you ever see a news story of a number of planning officers from different local authorities going missing in the same week, you'll never hear from me again 😂

Just got this from above company....

 

several of our tests will test it as part of a larger array of parameters.

Examples for this are the Water Analysis Plus as well as the Premium Water Test.

So after 3 weeks of toing and frowing with the architect and planning officer, with what i consider 'minor' amendments to the drawings, the planner is now satisfied and the drawing have been uploaded to the portal. I presume that this is now the start date of the application, FFS.

 

After such a major ball ache just getting the drawings submitted i am expecting an absolute hell of a application process! 😑

got test results back ==water is fine 

 

however although the lab complies with all required codes 

I still might have to get the council to do a test --

why

,because I do not have the qualifications to take the samples !!

 anyway water is fine which  what we needed to know for now 

 last email from head of planning was to say that due to covid he can give me no time scale as to when a planning application or site visit can happen 

 

 my spies tell me it could be next year before they are working normal --and that is measured  on a glacial time scale

Good luck with that! We got ours just before lockdown and were told then that we wouldn’t get a completion certificate while covid was on the go , apparently they will not come out which seems odd since you can have a workman in your house doing work!

AND I’ve just discovered it has run out last month so will need to get on to them and see if they’ll extend it 😩
