Re: British citizenship application with permanent residency

No documents is required apart from your ILR BRP, passport and English test and LIUK. I would suggest to use NCS services then you dont even have to send any of your orginal documents and photocopy would do.

All the best.

Re: March 2014 - Naturalisation Application Timeline

This is non issue as most of us who have applied has given the BRP card back to HO.

Re: changing address & ceremony venue after HO approval lett

I would suggest dont get into that conversation at all and just finish of this task by driving there. In recent times the services of HO has gone worse and they are not able to do their work properly.
