Is this a question?

Can you type it in coherent English please?

Three bricks long externally without calcs is the norm.

665mm or three bricks long is an accepted minimum but can be less with pro' advice.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I understand this might be a question for the building inspector but whats the likelynes of 380mm being passed?

Thank you

I can't imagine a situation where a normal domestic building would fail any buttressing calculation if there was less than a three brick return. I don't know why this nonsense is still insisted on

But it won't fail.

Why don't they ask for calcs on every single garage that has no return next to the garage door?
