I won’t bore you with all the details, but a local land owner has applied for planning consent for a couple of plots opposite my home. As a self-builder I welcome this, but the sites are at the end of a long narrow lane with absolutely no turning head for vehicles on the planning drawings, which I don’t agree with at all.
