Proposed roof extension to create additional living space.

We are not objecting to this application but have two comments :

1. The proposed window in the new front gable is set too high and too close to the roof. The front elevation would look considerably more elegant if the window was approx 200mm lower.

2. The barge boards to the proposed gable would look far more convincing if they were made of timber rather than UPVC. They are described as 'decorative', but decorative UPVC looks thin and phoney. A simple design in timber, like No. 7A would enhance the end result no end.
