Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council refused this application 25th February after originally validating it on 25th January. There reasons were stated as;
The proposed extension would detract from the amenities of neighbouring residential property by reason of loss of light.
The proposed extension would appear unduly prominent and out of keeping with both the application and neighbouring property in terms of its scale and massing resulting in the over-intensification of the property. This is contrary to policies ENV3 ‘Design Quality’ of the Black Country Core Strategy and SDE OS 9 ‘Urban Design Principles’ of the Site Allocations and Delivery Development Plan Document and the Revised Residential Design Guide 2014 SPD.
The Appeal Statement for this case that is being shown in the video and was produced specifically to overcome the refusal reasons issued by Sandwell Metropolitian Borough 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 will explain in the video in more detail what and how to achieve this.
The Planning Inspectorate visited the site on 28th June and issued the decision on 14th July.
We are pleased to share that this appeal was successful as detailed in the Planning Inspectors report.
