Stockport Metropolitan Council refused this application 22nd February after originally validating it on 15th December. There reasons were stated as;
The proposal for a two-storey side extension, by virtue of its design and massing, would have an adverse impact on the character and appearance of the host dwelling and surrounding area. As such, it is considered to be contrary to the provisions of Policies SIE-1 “Quality Places” of the adopted Core Strategy DPD, Saved Policy CDH1.8, “Residential Extensions” of the Stockport Unitary Development Plan Review, the Extensions and Alterations to Existing Dwellings SPD and the National Planning Policy Framework.
The Appeal Statement for this case is shown in the video and, was produced specifically to overcome the refusal reasons issued by Stockport Metropolitan Council for this application. As with many of these types of refusals, the reasons are very subjective and as such require a comprehensive and robust detailed appeal statement. Never under-estimate the level of detail needed, covering policies both locally and nationally and where possible brining other approvals and appeals into the argument. We explain in the video in more detail what and how to achieve this.
The Planning Inspectorate visited the site on 12th July and issued the decision on 25th August.
We are pleased to share that this appeal was successful as detailed in the Planning Inspectors report.
