246 Windsor Road,

Council: Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead

In this case, the council had refused permission because it felt that the extensions would harm the streetscene and also harm side windows in the neighbouring house.

In our Appeal Statement, we pointed out that the extensions had been carefully designed to complement that design and appearance of the property and would not not look out of place in a diverse streetscene. All of the houses along the road were different and most had been extended in one way or another.

The inspector also agreed with us that there would be no harm to the neighbour’s side windows since they were already overshadowed by the main house at the appeal site.

We were delighted when the appeal was successful and planning permission was granted.

“Martin is nothing short of a miracle worker!! We have spent nearly 2 years battling with our local planning authority to get planning for a rear and side extension and getting absolutely no where. After our 2nd refusal and the council hinting at us having no chance of ever getting what we wanted I reached out to Martin in a rather panicked state. He was so approachable and he gave such clear, honest and no nonsense advice that we decided to instruct him for our appeal. Within 2 weeks our thorough appeal statement was written and submitted. Ours wasn’t a straight forward case and odds were stacked against us but I’m pleased to say that we were successful and WON our appeal all thanks to Martin. We are still in shock! It was the best news and we are forever thankful to him and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. Thanks again Martin!”
