How fantastic - although we has planning for the renovation of our wee cottage, the previous owner put the 300m drive in the wrong place, etc etc so although way off a planning expert am getting better at the 'why's and wherefore's' and the day the building warrant came through was just fantastic - wish you lots of luck with your venture from a very wet Aberdeenshire, Clare

Thanks everyone!
...Did you get your wind turbines, by any chance?  What are you doing for household/farm energy?  Look forward to hearing more...........
Hi Morri2 we're just about to get connected up to mains electricity although our new home will be very eco friendly and a wind turbine is definately on our list.....I think the locals may try and burn us at the stake for even thinking about it though :-\ I have always found turbines to be so elegent and windy old Scotland is an ideal place to have them - clean fuel....I don't understand why people have a problem with them ???

Welcome back Pebbles. I really take my hat off to you and your OH - you're a great example.
Rosemary  ;D you know what an inspiration you are to us wannabes. You've done a brilliant job setting this and the CSSA up so we can all support one another.

Thanks Clare. I know what you mean - until you start to deal with the planners you have no idea how complicated and packed full of rules and regulations it is.......and every Council is slightly different with their own interpretations on Government guidlines. I just kept reading everything I could find and eventually (after about the 100th read) it started to make some sense!!!  ::) Still waiting for everything to arrive in writing....I'll probably frame it! ;D

So brilliant to read that you managed to stick with all the **** that is planning and have come up trumps  ;D We went through 18 months of 'fun and games' with our local council planning department, the tears, anger and frustration was unbelievable at times, but having just got our final building inspection completed and completion certificate due through the post the satisfaction is HUGE  ;D
All the best
