The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for a single storey ground floor rear extension; a first floor side extension; and a roof extension. General internal and external refurbishment, complete replacement of existing sash windows with timber framed double glazed units.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from a local resident.


The representation covered the following concerns:


i.  The proposed development was overbearing, overdeveloped, overlooked into neighbouring properties and also created overshadowing to those properties.

ii.  Six of those individuals expressing support of the application as a referenced in the officer’s report lived in Edinburgh and one from the architect. Only one signature was from an individual who lived in the area.

iii.  Believed the design did not comply with the Council’s roof design guide.

iv.  The proposed development would have an adverse effect on the neighbouring properties and surrounding area.


Mr Fiddian-Green (Applicant) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


The Committee noted a written statement of objection from Councillor Cantrill (Ward Councillor for Newnham).  


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.
