I know there are a few builders, developers on here, looking for some advice. A friend has an adjoining property with planning permission which expires in less than 2 months, he has not been given notice of work starting (he believes he is entitled to 2 months notice by law). So does that mean the work cannot start, and they will have to apply for permission again ?? He knows it would be best to call the planning dept, but they are already under a government investigation for dodgy practices, so would rather not tip them off, and maybe the developer. TIA.
