After Xmas once everything was typed up and ready to go our place was submitted to The Ponds Review Panel. Within a few weeks we got approved!!
Forgot to add, we completed our landscaping plan ourself just by using paint and following the guidelines. They were happy with everything just we had the letter box 0.1m too high!
One comment was made to protect the northern & western windows due to sun. They told us to get an appropriate shading device. On contacting Wisdom within that day we had a reasonable price to glaze the northern windows.
The other only comment was that our driveway was too close to the boundary trees which can easily be changed.
