Now thanks to the work of a local District Councillor & discussions with a senior Planner, we are faced with being able to start work just as soon as we want.
In short, it was finally agreed that we did NOT need Planing Permission, because the work we proposed was classed as 'routine maintenance'. There will possibly be 'hoops' to jump through later down the line, but for now it is - all systems GO!
So we are just waiting for the builders to produce their quotations & for us to award the contracts and Old Bolsover Yard will begin to 'rise from the ashes!'
Make sure that you come back here later in the week when we might have more good news to tell you.
We are really excited!!
