Extra window wanted

Recommended Posts

So we are nearly at wall plate height, next job is the roof

and then that nasty scenario rears it’s ugly head

i want to change the design, not a lot but I would like an extra window 

so what are the options

1, go back to the planners and ask nicely, what will this cost.?

2, put it in and apply for retrospective planning

3, put it in, who is actually going to notice. 

 

Further information, we are on a site of aprox 11 acres, no matter what angle you stand this window cannot be Sean from any other land.

stick it in, plead ignorance if anyone does complain (turn your plan the other way around) and look confused. If anyone comes over just temporarily board up the inside and say it's cladding, a modern artistic interpretation on the abolition of window tax 😉

Stick it in, you won’t be the only one who has done so 😉

If it's not overlooking anybody or otherwise going to be a problem wouldn't this be a non-material amendment? £45, IIRC, with Highland Council, presumably similar elsewhere. Downsides: if they do turn it down for any reason you a) haven't got any excuse and b) have drawn attention to the matter.
