In relation  to  the above  we  welcome and  support  the majority  of  the proposed  methods  of granting consent for basements and engagement with neighbours.

About  the Pyramus & Thisbe Club

The Pyramus & Thisbe Club was set up in the 1970's by the late John  Anstey. As you may be aware John Anstey is the well known author of "Party Walls and What to do with them" and "Boundary Disputes and How to Resolve Them". Both books are published by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

 

The Pyramus & Thisbe Club is an organisation for construction professionals with a particular interest in matters relating to the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Whilst the majority of members  are surveyors, the Club also  includes  architects,  structural  engineers,  solicitors, barristers  and  others  with  an  interest  in  the subject.

 

The Pyramus  & Thisbe  Club is organised  on a regional basis  and covers  the whole  of England  and Wales. Most members  of the Club have considerable  experience and knowledge in party wall matters. The Club seeks  to advance  knowledge of the Party Wall etc Act 1996 and promote  best professional practice in its application.

 

Relevant Extracts

We fully appreciate that the topic of basement construction is wide ranging and therefore we have limited our comments to the Party Wall etc Act 1996, surveyors acting on behalf of their appointing owners and any references to the service of notice and party wall awards.
