Almost done

Well, my first house in HOHRH is almost done. I should have house 1 (actually it is House #4 on the design) done tomorrow night and then I can take a break form it and get some more stitching done on Stargazer before the next Chatelaine passwords come in.


Today we lodged our application form with council and should hear if we have been sucessful in around a week's time. Again we were told that the only thing that may stop it being approved will be the design of the car space. The guy who Bren spoke to said if it was up to him he would approve the car park space but that it would be up to the Town Planner as technically there is no "turning circle" in the car space. It seems they are not too concerned with our business as it doesn't really require a lot of parking, but that if they were to approve it for us then it sets a precident on the property. So if we were to get the property and then leave in a couple of years, the next business wanting the property would not have to go through what we are because the re-zoning would have been done by us already. The concern is that another business may be bigger and require more spaces and there is nothing council could do to stop them moving into the property as the re-zoning would already be in place. Not sure if I have explained all this clearly but the main thing is we will know soon one way or the other. At this stage I am trying to think positively but I doubt we will get the approval as we have a rather unflexible council up here in the Mountains. If it is turned down we will see if we can have a meeting with the Town Planner and see if we can convince him to chance his mind.

    Your project looks great! It looks like a lot of fun to stitch. :D

    I hope you get things worked out with your parking issues. I suppose they have a good point, but that doesn't make it easier for you.
