  1. They should have a record of it even if it didn't need planning permission. They don't usually allow windows where they immediately over look a neighbour. If its facing your own garden it isn't a problem. We lived on a cul de sac. The front of my neighbours house was in line with the back of mine. Anyone going up their drive could see straight in to my back garden but that never bothered me. Their garage was directly on the border so the window on the side of their garage was about two thirds down my garden giving no privacy at all. They were friends but I wasn't sure how they would react if I asked them to put obscure glass in the window. When they had an inspection for change of use the council insisted on that so saved me the job of raising the issue. I challenged my council tax banding about fifteen years ago. The council unearthed some plans (including later outbuildings / garage) from the 1970s. The outbuilding (large garage) was built some time after the house in the 70s or 80s. My point is, the council will have plans if the building is legal. If its a garagae it may be fine but not if its converted. If the op isn't changing anything then its as I said previously, its still a garage.
  2. If you are changing it then change of use applies. If you just sit in the garage then its still a garage. If you are keeping the large front doors, not adding insulation, no more lighting or electrics and not putting down any floor then just ask the council what they think to adding another door and window. They may wonder why, depending how your garage and house is positioned.
  3. A conservatory is different to a garage conversion. pintor I agree with the advice to contact your council but there is a portal you can check with examples: https://www.planningportal.co.uk/permission/
  4. There is a charity that sets up offering afternoon tea type meetings on a monthly basis. I think these are usually Sundays. One set of people host, the other set of people pick up the same elderly friend they have been given and drive them to the persons house where they are having tea. You stay with them and join in the tea then take them home again. https://www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk/
  5. Not planning permission but you need change of use permission. My neighbour need it when they changed their garage in to another room. They only changed the garage door for a house door and window. It already had double skinned walls and electric.
  6. The whole point of stunning is so they don't feel pain. Farmed animals are used to being moved and put in a pen, even those reared on a small scale rather than mass farmed. For example, how do you think they treat sheep so their fleece is clean and their tails are clean so they are not eaten alive by maggots? Some flies lay eggs that will eat live, healthy flesh. I didn't believe this until it happened to one of my cockerels who had only a tiny bit of poop on his rear end. Farmers have various dips for their sheep so they are penned prior to treatment. Cows are often checked for TB etc, etc.
  7. I was quoting someone who said vegetarianism is cruelty free in their response to the original subject of the thread. I wasn't commenting on the fact their comment had strayed a little from the subject of the thread.
  8. Thats not true because vegetarians still eat dairy. Vegans is maybe the word you meant?
  9. They look like hazelnut or closely related cobnut to me.
  10. You should be able to get some sort of reduction in charge for a 'season ticket', you can in Rotherham anyway. I know people who worked in Rotherham town centre and had businesses there, they bought discounted season tickets for car parks. I presumed you (bassguitar) were asking about business permits or reduced price parking not residents parking. Link to section covering business or visitors parking permits. This may still not be the correct section but give them a call. I have used visitors permits in other areas (not Sheffield) but its the resident that gets them and loans you the ticket for your car. https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/parking/apply-parking-permit Business permits is below the visitors parking if you scroll down after clicking on the link.
  11. This is your starting point for information. If this doesn't answer your question give them a call or drop an email: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/parking/apply-parking-permit
  12. If they are commuting they are going to be on the road before the traffic gets really busy at school run time.
  13. My brother moved house to get his daughter in to the comp school there, shes been going two years. That school is close to Flanderwell, Bramley and Hellaby.
  14. You get that with any new development. Its not as thought its through a small village where they can't widen the roads again. The only pinch point is the roundabout at Barlborough. That have already improved the roads because they started building an industrial estate about a decade ago. Have you not been out there and seen for yourself? Thats not a large development compared to how Worksop and surrounding areas have grown over the last thirty years. I used to live in Worksop and have seen the changes since the 1980s from Worksop through to Barlborough. I regularly visit those areas weekdays and weekends.
  15. Here is the link to Sheffield BCSS Facebook page and group specifically about cacti and succulents. The main page announcing events etc: https://www.facebook.com/Sheffieldbcss/ The group where you can chat about cacti ir succulents or ask about the meetings.: https://www.facebook.com/groups/167927920810285/?source_id=178552859301798
