I've just had a stent put in under a general anaesthetic as I have some kind of blockage of the urethra. The doc is not yet sure what the problem is other than its not a kidney stone (I'm female by the way). At the moment I'm in quite a lot of pain and wondered if anyone had had a stent put in and been able to resume running as normal afterwards. How long did it take before you could run? Where there any problems?
Just got home. Thanks to E Hull Harriers for organising the race- the course is much better than last year, enough water stations, more and friendly marshalls and saw all the mile markers (though sometimes twice or three times which was a bit confusing!!). I particularly enjoyed the section between 10-12 miles straight into the wind......
The overhanging gutter is not a planning issue- you can apply for planning permission for land you don't own. Party Wall act is an option but surveyeors are expensive. Try to get a recommendation if you use one, whether you're paying or not.
The out-of-date plans are an issue to highlight. The Planning Officer cannot be making a sound decision if the extension isn't shown. You need to object in writing.
Other grounds for objection include loss of amenity and overlooking and/ or overbearing (this is particularly an issue if houses are on a slope). Loss of light can be an issue if there are any facing windows of main rooms (bedrooms, living room etc). Potential loss of value is not a planning concern.
The Council probably have leaflets explaining planning concerns and on what grounds you can object to a planning application. If not, a google search will find councils which do provide that kind of info. Also check the Council's own planning policies on extensions- these may be on their website, or you might need to go into an office to see them. Their decision must take account of the policies.
Good luck. But, don't get your hopes up too much- there is generally a presumption for development
