If so then you will be able to do it yourself as it will have a bayonet connector on the end. Push it in then turn it anti clockwise then pull.

am I allowed to do that? I currently live in a council flat so wasn't sure if I needed someone registered to do it. I did google it but some people were saying it needs capping and doing professionally etc.

Is the cooker going back there? I often disconnect mine to clean down the sides and underneath.

Old bayonet fitting can stick and sometimes not close properly after disconnecting, usually they are fine.

Technically a bayonet fitting is not classed as CAPPED OFF, you need to have it capped properly.....contact council and ask, they will INSIST you have it capped properly.....I know this because I am asked to do this several times a year by council tenants

Hi, anyone could recommend reliable and reasonable priced gardening service, e.g. raking, mowing for a small garden of 30 square meters?
Thanks

Hi All,

Looking to have our garden landscaping. Require new paving slabs laying in new configuration and install new fencing.

Approx 35m Sq of paving to be laid. Will require approx 2 stages to complete the work.

Looking for any recommendations on tradesmen. House is located in Hillsborough.

Lee

Hi guys

I have recently bought a property in S10, and am looking to do a few things in the house at different stages. However, I am not sure where to start, and whether I need to get planning permission, building control etc.

1) Attic room extension – the existing loft had been converted to a proper bedroom with a velux window, a proper door and staircase before the purchase of my previous owners, so it has been there for more than 10 years . I would like to make it an en-suite bedroom, push back the existing “wooden” walls a bit, replace the existing velux to a dormer window (facing the back of the property) and add a velux window in the front.

2) Cellar – the existing cellar is currently hidden by a trap door. I wish to put a proper door open to access to the cellar for the purpose of storage only (e.g. put a fridge downstair). No intention to make it a habitable room but I was told by a builder that it would add value if I did!

3) Conservatory – The current kitchen is rather small. I am hoping in a few years time to add a single storey rear extension as a dining/conservatory with access to the garden which is semi-enclosed. I understand that this is a Permitted Development so no planning permission is required.

4) Decking in the garden but assuming this's minor thing

I do want to move in asap and I do only have limited budget after the purchase.

Does it make sense to do the attic first, and then cellar? Or would it be more useful to add a conservatory?

Is it more economical to get one company to sort all of the above? Or coordinate directly with different builders as they are often specialised in one or two particular things but not all. Any recommendations?


Many thanks
