Phase 1. Planning permission. Done!
Yes, after navigating our way through a changing planning system the perseverance has paid of with full detailed permission now granted to change the use from The Hole (former water storage reservoir) to The Whole (a private dwelling).
I am delighted that we have already explored some new ideas during the first phase of The Whole project not least this little YouTube film making the planning application more accessible. It's difficult to know if this helped keep the objections to the permission down to the one but feel it is the type of tool that Localism should be about.
