Went for a walk-in chat at the planning office to see if it would be possible to build a new dwelling for myself in the very large garden of my parents house (with their blessing).
He very quickly said no way forget it, apparently because the house it's outside the village so new dwellings are a no-no.
Seems odd to me since we are constantly hearing about how many X thousand new homes new to be built in the SE of England and how planning laws are being relaxed.
So should I leave it there, or is it worth taking it further?
I suppose all I could do next would be get some plans drawn up and do a proper application? Which would of course cost money.
Anything else I could do first?
Am I wasting my time?
