We've just won approval for triple glazing (with numerous caveats) on the new build part of our Exmouth Market project but this success is tempered by a planning officer on another project in another borough who is worried that external insulated render on the rear of a building might be seen by passengers on a train (through the trees). Obviously the glimpse of render from a moving train could clearly never cause offence to even the most staunch supporter of profligate fossil fuel wastage. But maybe there's a risk that the train breaks down at the bottom of the garden? One can imagine the passengers stamping their feet in anger - not that their train has broken down, but that the house down the bottom of the long garden, just visible through the trees, has a rendered rear elevation. Is this a true story? Yes unebelievable as it may seem, it is.
