  1. I dont understand why another small historical bldg was approved for a much larger modern addition. Where this isn't even approved for an addition. The council is FAR from being consistent between applicants.

  2. I think the department of development should be grateful ppl want to save these buildings that have sat for years and left to rot. I think it's a disgrace them just trying to make it difficult for ppl to bring this beautiful old buildings back to how they were if not better

  3. I was wondering why they couldn't build the extension with a basement. That way it's not talker then the original. I'm only 2/3rds into the video, but I doubt it will be. The planning commission has so kuch to say on a place that is being rescued. Shoot, another decade and it would have fallen over. Plus I really don't think the extension would have distracted from the main house, since the main house will be in the original style and the extension in a modern style. Foolish planning commission.

  4. Admittedly, i am from America and don’t know how things work over there, but WHY does the Planning committee require a MODERN extension?? I would think that it would be enough to look historically traditional and be modernized on the INSIDE.. And why is planning pickier in the RURAL areas rather than in the suburban areas?

  5. hey someone should start a new series now 10yrs after to see how all these unfinished projects have progressed, if last of the summer wine can go on for 30yrs so can this one

  6. How frustrating to have to put up e with the planning committees petty interference! You can’t have two stories in the country, even though the original building is two story? Make it smaller, make it more modern, we don’t like this, we don’t like that so you can’t have anything….. I’d very much like to throttle some snotty, uppity folk right now! All that time and money and they can’t use it?!

  7. I cannot believe the arrogance of these "planning" people. Where I live in Texas you can build whatever you want to build so long as it meets the building codes and is not offensive. If you want to create an extension that is double the size of the current structure there is no one who can tell you that you can't do it. This poor family is in the countryside so what difference does it make? They are saving a 400 year old building from total collapse and this arrogant twit is dictating to them the size of the extension they can build adjoining a structure that is not listed and that few people will ever see. You folks in the UK need to get the power of these so-called "planning" people significantly curtailed. This nonsense is unbelievable!
