A process that was meant to take just four weeks has taken four months but heck this is Greece we are talking about, the Scotland of the South. A third of adults in Greece work for the Government but nothing ever gets done. But today we have learned that the Architects Council has okayed our plans to redevelop the Greek Hovel. Phew.
We can now take that clearance and the Forestry permit to seek a building permit, a process which is meant to take less than three months. And at that point we can start the process of rebuilding at once.
My guess is that three Greek months is about six English months so we start rebuilding in May 2017 (three years after we bought it) and will thus be able to spend Christmas and the Olive harvest 2017 in Greece as a family
