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.
