Just heard today from John Rudd at New Forest Log Cabins that he’ll be doing my drawings and costings tomorrow.  Hope so.  Impatient to get started now, after years of dithering!  Once we’ve got the drawings, we can meet up again with Chris (Bennett, Project Manager) to make sure we’re all on the same page, and then set up a three-way meeting with Chris, Peter and the planning officer he spoke to informally a little while ago, Stephen Baughan.  Assuming that all goes according to plan, we can then proceed to formal planning permission.

According to Mr Baughan, there shouldn’t be any problem.  Yeah, well, we’ll see.
