Proposal: New two storey extension to side of existing house and new first floor extension over part of existing house.

The Bishopston Society are very concerned about the design quality of this application and the adverse effect on neighbouring properties and the character of the local area.

The design is highly incongruous, far too small in scale and with its hipped roof has no satisfactory relationship with the existing terraced houses alongside. Furthermore, the 2 storey design with its many upper floor windows will overlook and overbear adjacent properties and their private rear gardens.
We consider that this tight/irregular site would be best developed as a single storey courtyard house, such that it would have no adverse impact on adjacent properties and the character of the neighbourhood.
We strongly recommend that the application is refused.

Update  :  This application was refused on 27 May 2016.
