One for my Elan and one as an antique-computer workshop.


I replaced an old tin shed with one of these http://www.waltons.co.uk/waltons-premie ... -workshops about 4 years ago. This summer, a carpenter friend & I had to replace about 40% of the wooden cladding as it had completeley rotted away, this was inspite of the fact that we treated all panels with good quality Cuprinol wood preserver/stain before we errected it & repeated the treatment after a couple of years! The affected wood had kind of rotted from the inside, even bits that looked fine were found to be rotten when we gave them a bit of a poke. I contacted Waltons regarding this & was basicaly told "What do you expect, it's wood, it wont last more than a few years." My carpenter said it was down to the use of cheap timber that hadn't been kiln dried & treated correctly prior to being milled ? That may mean something to some of you, wood is not one of my strong subjects, I'm just pi**ed off that my 'new' shed is now not as good as the old tin one it replaced. I think Caveat Emptor is the appropriate phrase

..it's my job :wink:


Jon,
I want to replace the garage at my seaside house, but I'm not clear on whether I need approval from the Environment Agency due to the plot being within 250m of the foreshore. The new garage is to be less than 30 square metre's, non combustible (concrete) and more than 1 metre from boundaries, my local Compton's garages say it doesn't need any permission, but I remember seeing a local circular from the EA stating that they need to be consulted prior to any development. I can't find anything on their web site and it's not obvious who to contact.

Can you point me in the right direction?
Kindest regards

Alan Thomas

Hi

I'm contemplating building a second garage on the other side of the house. This will close off unhindered pedestrian access from front to back garden. I plan for the new garage to have full doors either end.

Is this an issue that planners would worry about?

Thanks

The committee's report represents the most comprehensive cross-party criticism so far of the government's draft plan to slim down more than 1,000 pages of planning policy to just 52


Sounds good to me.

Just heard on the news the new policy is expected April 2012

Hi Jon

Any idea when/if the Penfold Review is going to be actioned?
Fingers crossed for April.

I am happy to see:

"To reduce the number of unnecessary applications, the Government will enable the extent of a listed building?s special interest to be legally defined in its list entry ? so only those parts of a building that contribute to its special interest are protected by regulation, removing the requirement to apply for a consent for works that impact other parts of the building."

Maybe I can then get another garage in the garden?
