I live in a ground floor flat (Victorian conversion) and have a large double-sized window in the rear of the property I want to turn into French doors from my kitchen onto the deck.
The window extends from ceiling height to about 2.5 feet from the floor - it already contains a replacement window (done prior to me buying the flat).
I want to turn this into a door (which in effect means knocking out just 2 feet of brickwork). Yet my local council insists this still requires planning permission.
Seems daft - can anyone advise?
