How We Approached Dealing With The Planning Authority

Hello
We haven't been on here for a while because we've been lost in Facebook, but we thought that this may be something of interest to this forum.

We've written a little piece about how we dealt with the planning authority when applying for permission to live in the woods. It's something people often ask about. This is not about the law but about a philosophy that certainly worked for us. It would be interesting to hear other peoples experiences of the system.

The piece we've written is at: www.bulworthyproject.org.uk/planning.html

Do let us know what you think.

Thank you very much. That was a very interesting read and made a lot of sense. I will share this article to other suitable forums if that is OK.

We are looking to settle on our own piece of land but it will probably be abroad as we cannot afford the land prices in Cornwall

sensible stuff, we've been following the same path, being friendly and cooperative with neighbours and the LPA, my other half is the local vet so she has some social standing in the area, etc...

You are welcome. Keep up the good work you are doing. I may come up on a bow making course in the future.
