Is he saving it as an excel doc?

It's an issue we have with reports in work, they are exported as csv files and unless you save as, and set file type to excel doc the changes are lost.

Anyone here have experience of the planning process in NI?

Wouldn't be a regular query:

- Applied and achieved planning permission for a replacement dwelling
- Due to lack of viable lenders had to submit further application for revised entrance
- Upon commencing working drawings decided to throw the whole design up and start from scratch
- Have new application ready to go, inclusive of the revised entrance (above), do not intend to cancelling current permission until this application has been approved

Question is; we would like to commence the earthworks for the lane before we head towards the winter months again, we have permission in place for this but could us starting that in any way hamper the new application?

Is the new dwelling on the same footprint as the original approval?  If so, the Planning Authority should be able to treat the new application as a simple change of house type application, with an amended access arrangement.

If the new proposal isn't on the same footprint then things could be a lot more difficult as there would be a potential for two dwellings on the site.  If the works are commenced on the first approval then you would have to seek a revocation of the original application before the second application could be approved, which would be time consuming.

New dwelling is on the same footprint, however significantly different and therefore could not be submitted as simply an amendment. Would anticipate having to seek a revocation of original application. I would like to get a start on the lane only at this stage but do not want to do so if it could be detrimental to new application.

If the dwelling is on the same footprint then you should require a revocation.  A new application should be sufficient, depending on the design and suitability of the access.  Are you planning to use both entrances?

The existing entrance will remain - servicing other properties. This was the issue with lenders, the shared lane scenario was a deal beaker for them all. Assume you mean 'should not'. The revised access was passed previously as an amendment to the original application, took longer to go through than the dwelling (in fairness the dwelling is not visible form the road)

Should not  :)

Cheers for that, think i'll tear away.

Sorry can't help with your query as haven't went through the process but you might be able to give me a rough idea of question i asked earlier (or anyone else)

How much would you estimate to get plans drawn and planning permission passed?

Be dependent on a number of factors - all comes back to time, so if there is significant back and forth it would increase costs. I had a friend do up the plans for me but I would estimate with planning fee (850) you would be looking between 3-5k. Open to correction on that all the same, and that wouldn't include working drawings.

Yes, I've recently started using Zwift. I've done a couple of FTP tests, some group training rides, designed a couple of short workouts, and done one TT. Have to say it takes the boredom out of turbo training. Great job in my opinion.

Could anyone recommend a turbo (mid level pricing) that is fully equipped to work with zwift? Been toying with the idea for a while but not 100% sure on turbo requirements.

Any turbo will work with Zwift once you have a Cadence & speed sensor.

If you mean a Smart Turbo that will adjust automatically if you choose a hilly course or create a custom workout - I use this one - https://tacx.com/product/vortex-smart/

Cheers, is that good to go straight out of the box? Apart from the zwift bit obviously.

Tried to search for running 'trails' with not much joy. Can anyone tell me if there are any round North Armagh direction?

I'd say Gosford Park would have plenty of paths in that area. Any forest park would have plenty, I would do a lot in Castlewellan forest park and Tollymore, do a good bit of it at night with a head torch - hard to beat it!

looking some advice - I purchased a mobile broadband router (O2) recently and as i had thought I am getting speeds 10x my BT broadband, only issue is the range within the house. Have any of you used a mobile router in a home/workplace that you could recommend?
