Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for a part two-storey, part single-storey, rear and side extensions. The works incorporate the demolition of an existing garage and part demolition of the existing house. A roof extension including rear dormers and a balcony is included in the scheme, which also involves an increase to the ridge height of 0.2m.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from Mr Kratz.


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  Supported the principle of extending the property.

  ii.  Took issue with the details of this specific application:

·  Impact on existing residents’ amenities (overlooking, dominance, loss of light and privacy).

·  Impact on the character of the area due to the applications’ unsuitable design.

  iii.  Referred to residents’ queries set out in the Officer’s report. The number of these were disproportionate to the size of the application, it’s unusual to receive this many representations for a minor application.


Mr Anca (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 4 votes to 2) to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers.
