Hello fellow self builders, looking forward to gathering a wealth of knowledge from you all. We have just secured our first plot which comes with outline planning. We do plan to go back to the drawing board regards the house design. Keeping everything crossed that we don't come up against difficult planning officers.

Welcome to BuildHub! Whereabouts are you building? Helps if the guys on here know as there are different regs depending on where you are. Just a rough area if you don’t want to say specifically.

We bought our plot with OPP for a rather boring design of bungalow. There'd been a lot of objections even to that, so we encountered loads of hassle from Nimbys when we re-submitted for a 1.5 storey chalet bungalow. If you haven't already,  I'd suggest having a good read of any comments/objections relating to the OPP as this may give you a steer as to where any 'red lines' may be.

 

Good luck.

So far so good. we've just had verbal confirmation they approve of the amended plans. Test holes being dug next week, so I'm hoping this doesn't raise any issues.
