This is my first post on here. We got planning permission approved for a run down shack we purchased way back in 2004. We only got around to submitting it in December 2011 and it was approved in 2 weeks much to our shock and delight! Having said this we haven't had the funds to start it and it said on the form that we had 2 years in which to make a start. That runs out in December 2013. We have paid buildings permission tax ? of about 400 euros last year and the final payment is 600 euros this year as I had to fill in a form to say when I anticipated the works would start.
What happens if we don't make a start on the property before December 2013 - will we have to start the whole process again?
Any information and advice would be gratefully appreciated
