Planning Permission Granted!

I am just about to leave a rainy west of Scotland for the 34 degree heat of Marrakech so here's a quick update on another milestone on the Marrakech Riad adventure.  This week planning permission was granted for the new improved Riad Romm'an!  It was nice to be the client on this one, as usually its me pushing applications through the system.  Thanks to Grant Stoner Rawlings at  Chic Marrakech and to Muhammed Ali at the Marrakech Planning Department for turning the application around so quickly and smoothly.

 So its over to Marrakech again to talk with Grant about how we make the designs on the drawings (above) into reality (below).  Should also get the chance to head for the souks and practice some Arabic!  Cafe Arabe here I come!


  1. I am happy to read everything's going your way. We are also fine now. The Good Man is history and our house is lovely. The very best of luck to you all along the way!

  2. Thank You Torunlian, we are enjoying our adventure and looking forward to the ups and downs of the construction phase. Perhaps we will meet with you one day in Marrakech.

  3. It’s really a nice and useful piece of information. Thanks for the share.
