That sounds just like Portugal. Perhaps if I throw a case of Alentejo vinho tinto and some bucks for coffee at the town council, the delay will be days and not weeks. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.I am not so sure about it. There are some basic rules you have to respect, but the rules can be stretched… how far you can go, depends to your local council. Ex: Praya Del Rei complex doesn´t allow you to have a washing line on your front garden, “spoils the views”. If you want to be sure of what can you do or not, take your plans to your local council, and they will tell you for what you need planning permission. They might take a few days, (weeks??), to answer you, but at least you will know how far you can go, without spending money with an architect
I wouldn´t chance the Bucks but a case of Esporão red, Huummmm...will probably workThat sounds just like Portugal. Perhaps if I throw a case of Alentejo vinho tinto and some bucks for coffee at the town council, the delay will be days and not weeks. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.
Yes, Mr Blueskies, well informed estate agents have this information.
Can anyone give any guidelines, as to what can safely be done without planning permission ? For example, I have been told that old windows can be replaced with new without permission as long as the widows are not enlarged.
Also that all interior work can be done and interior partition walls added in safety ?
I have a garage at the front of my house that just needs garage doors fitted, front and back. Could I install windows and sliding doors front and back and so turn it into additional living space without planning permission ?
Hi John,Hi Derek
Can you answer this question?
We have a 1.5m wall around our property. It is our intention to raze that wall. Did some research and can’t find the answer to it. Wrote to my council, but still waiting for replay, (might try the case of wine). Friends and neighbours have given me 2 different answers. Some say I can’t do it because the local council wouldn’t allow it, others are saying that if I use a 6ft metal or wood fence over the wall, it will be ok. Can you help?
