planning permission extension

    4 years ago I got planning for a house and a garage as I was I dire need of storage so said I would get planning for a house along with the garage since my current place is well over 100 years old and I planned on knocking it and building something more suitable. I built the garage shortly after getting the planning permission. When I got planning the archecit said that it's for 5 year but can easily be extended for another 5.

    Anyway it's in the last year of planning so I went and put in the extension form and payment to the county council and a few weeks later I get a phone call from them saying I'm no longer in county council area and I'm now within cork city council. The person from the county council told me I don't have a hope of getting the planning extended and when I rang the archecit he said pretty much the same thing as some new regulation came in last September out of no where and they won't extend planning any more.

    Anyone have any idea of options here as I wasn't planning on building the house for a year due to covid and I want to get back on my feet after being out of work for the best part of the last 2 years. I rang a few banks and they said they would need 12-18 months on the planning to give me a mortgage

    I don't want to have to pay for planning again as it cost me the best part of 10k the last time between paying the contribution and the architect.

    Any advise would be appreciated.
