Re: Gardens and Grass

A rainwater storage system sounds lovely doesn't it? However, Crete is not the UK. In the UK the tank will constantly be topped up. Here, we get almost no rain for 5 months or so in the summer. How big a tank could you install? Once you've used up what rain fell in the winter it will just sit there ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Excuse my ignorance, but I've stopped taking any interest; what exactly will we gain by "leaving", whilst staying in the Single Market and the Customs Union? Genuine question. Andrew No one can honestly say what we would gain by any of the options from No Deal to Remain and everything In ...

Re: Recycling smartphones

If you Google "smartphone recycling websites", you will find various sites that will pay you for an old phone. They tend to major on the popular brands, but if your phone is listed, you could get paid for it. Worth a try?

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

......I'm surprised it is a 400 sqm limit for such a large plot since mine is almost that for a 510 sqm plot. Perhaps there is an upper limit of 400 sqm on a single plot inside a village like the 200 sqm limit outside the village boundary? In most, (all?) places there is an upper limit of 400 sqm. ...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

.........I am amazed at properties near me that have recently been renovated for letting through AirBnB etc. For example a tiny house fronting directly onto a village road with just enough outside space to put a small table and 4 chairs giving a fantastic view of the half derelict OTE exchange buil...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

grannyM, sorry, I was being overly prescriptive in saying the notary will know nothing. If he/she is willing, then you will probably get the information you need. But I always think it's best to use the appropriate professional. Your top should show the minimum plot size required to build, maximum f...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Yes, I think we will talk to the Notary. I was hoping there was a standard ratio, + distances between properties and from boundaries, which I thought I dimly remembered, but better get it right! Cheers! The notary will know nothing about it. Speak to an engineer/surveyor/architect, and show them th...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

In most villages you would expect to be able to build more than you now have. However, there are all sorts of variations in planning regs. Why not consult an engineer, or get an educated Greek friend to look at your topograph and tell you the answer to your question?

Re: State pension inequality

The article mentions "hundreds of thousands of people aged 50-64 deemed “economically inactive”". If we already have these people who cannot find, or do not want work, how is raising pension age going to help these people. What a load of bullshit.

But why am I surprised?

Yep, I can confirm the problem exists for me too. Tried to text a friend on O2 today. He received nothing.
