Appeal against a refusal of planning permission for a first-floor side extension

Appeal Allowed (Full Planning Permission Granted) on 12 October 2022

planning permission side extension

5 Nathans Road,

Council: London Borough of Brent

Brent Council refused planning permission for this first-floor side extension because the house had already been extended and they felt it was poorly designed (with a flat roof) and would appear awkward next to the rest of the house.

In our appeal, we pointed out that the extension would not be visible from the street, was small in size and scale and would fit in well with the house. We showed that flat-roofed extensions were very common in this area.

The council’s decision was unreasonable and we were delighted when the appeal inspector agreed with our assessment and granted planning permission
