    No, but body armour can be useful.

    All well and good I thought. Specced it all up to find that you need planning permission for anything over 1 foot high.

    That's full blown planning permission, not building regs. Have to draw up plans and submit them, pay a fee (£150) and then wait months on end for the approval.

    This has been the case since 2008.

    Talking to my tradesmen the majority of the work they do is under the radar of the muppets from the local planning office.

    Well, quite. It's the summerhouse that's the big ticket item & I don't need permission for that. Just the decking it's going to stand on.

    Can always rip it out in the unlikely event that I get found out.

    Went and spoke to a company about demolishing our entire garage and replacing with a new concrete one. He said no need for permission if under 2.5m, no infringement by door on public footpath. and other miscellaneous criteria.

    Am having him do the whole lot, so will have his bollocks if there is any comeback from the council.
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.

    Make the decking 25cm high, not 30. simples.
    I didn't say it was your ******* fault, I said I was blaming you!

    Pacharan, if you want to hit someone I don't think you need to worry about planning permission.
    What happens in General, stays in General.
    You know what they say about assumptions!
