Planning and a Hurdling Pug

 
I was asked about the white tape visible in the photos on the last post. We put it in place to help the architect that is starting to submit plans to the local Planning Office for the planning permission for our poly and net tunnels.  That we even need this in the first place surprised us, although as they are so close to the road we are doing as we are told and waiting until we have consent  before we buy and erect them.
 
 
Once the tunnels are in place the top part of the plan will have the raised beds for the new Veggie Patch.  What a fantastic view I will have when I stand up between planting and weeding sessions, will I even get any work done I wonder or simply stand staring into space!!
 
 
Our reasoning behind putting the polythene tunnel and then the net tunnel and then the veggie patch in this order is to protect the vegetables from as many traffic fumes as possible. We do live on a very busy road, with traffic whizzing past all day long and trucks coming by very early in the mornings and if I can keep just some of these fumes away from my growing food I will be very happy.
 
 
In the meantime the tape is proving very entertaining for Suky, the Pug as she 'hurdles' her way down the hill over the tapes after virtually every doggy walk around the paddock, she'll be upset when they're gone.

  3. Are you thinking of planting a hedge along the road side to help reduce fumes/traffic pollution?

  4. I can't believe you need permission for polytunnels, I thought you only needed permission for permanent structures! Hope you get it anyway x

  5. You will have to leave some space to erect a sporting arena for the dogs. At least they will be kept entertained and fit, lol.
