    Resisted until earlier today, and am now in full mincing season!

    Started off strong with an offering from The Pavilion. TBF, they were my favourite from last year and 2021 has clearly been kind to them so I am struggling to see how today’s offering can be beaten. Saying that, at £2.50 a pie it is not sustainable and I will need to lower my expectations for the journeyman pie.

    Wanted to but couldn't face trekking in to the Music Room. Hope their online archive sales don't disappear.

    Edit: Hold my drink, I see it is online as well...

    Yes. I’m unsure where their involvement came from (whether PPL were through the broker who we have used before or new mortgage provider Nationwide), but I would be inclined to change either if I had to use them again. A seriously painful and expensive process with 2 mortgage payments at variable rate. Thank you very much Natasha you fucking fuck.

    Do you have a leaseholder application process detailed in the building freehold? If so, what are the particulars of this?

    Ultimately, you need to establish what works are taking place now, and what the statutory processes are for these works. Freehold agreement particulars excluding, could your neighbour just be doing internal works that don't require a party wall award?

    Again freehold agreement particulars excluding, it is worth noting that your neighbour can do non-notifiable works without the party wall award in place. Maybe your neighbour's contractor is just trying to get ahead of the works thinking the award will come through during this period. Pretty brazen, and the party wall process can be pretty drawn-out information/neighbours/surveyors depending.

    Communication is obviously key and clearly, your neighbour is lacking in this. It is worth teaming up with the other leaseholders/properties to help apply pressure on your neighbour/contractor to establish the current works and future works programme.

    For reference, Permitted Development rights do not apply to flats, so any external works (moving windows etc.) will need planning permission which clearly has not been approved as yet.

    Seriously fuck those guys. Were overseeing our mortgage renewal which we started 4-5months before it was due and they still managed to oversail it by 2months. Them (Natasha, I’m looking at you) and their e-way system can >>>>>

    Echoing that, and very rare/a first to be agreeing with Gove! Not necessarily sure previous housing secretary Jenrick would have come to the same conclusion.

    First Planning Application that I am aware of where the embodied carbon has had any real impact on the decision; hopefully a sign of things to come.

    Had the pleasure of meeting Alex Dowsett at a charity do once. He was surprisingly down to earth, and VERY funny.

    Wo! Mega reply. I had thought it would have to be a labour of love website but hadn't considered the older/now redundant 90s (grocers' apostrophe corrected) webpages vs. the web as we know it now.

    The above link is super useful though and will no doubt lead to lots of new internet tabs to review.

    Does anyone know of a website that has collated all the bikes at each of the grand tours? Ideally looking for something that goes back to the early 90's (future MGOOF build resource) but general interest as well.
