Retrospective Loft Conversion with Rear Dormer Planning Appeal Dorset Council

Dorset Council refused this application on 31st May after originally validating on 22nd February. There reasons were stated as; 1. The development is overly prominent, incongruous and without precedent in the area. The prominence is due to its elevated position against the original roof, the incongruity being due to the mix of roof types, the harsh box shape, the choice of materials and bulk of the flat roofed element and its juxtaposition with the gables. As such it would be contrary to policies ENV10 and ENV12 of the West Dorset and Weymouth & Portland Local Plan 2015. 2. By reason of the development’s location adjoining the boundary with No. 4, its elevated position, bulk, boxy design and dark colour finish, it is overbearing to that neighbouring dwelling which has windows serving habitable rooms and an external yard area below. As such the development is contrary to policy ENV16 of the…

Retrospective Garden Fence Planning Appeal Canterbury City Council

Canterbury City Council refused this retrospective application on 1st March after originally validating on 8th December. There reasons were stated as; By reason of its hight and location, the fence is considered to have an overbearing impact on neighbouring properties and in conflict with several local policies and the national planning policy framework. The Appeal statement for this case that is detailed in the video, was produced specifically to overcome the refusal reasons issued by Canterbury City 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. I explain later in the video what and how to achieve this. The Planning Inspectorate visited the site on 4th October…

Double Garage Front Garden Planning Appeal Shropshire Council Case Study

Shropshire Council refused this application 19th May after originally validating it on 10th March. There reasons were stated as; The proposed structure located forward of the principle elevation would interrupt the openness of the site resulting to a significant visual impact on the designed and approved landscape plan of the immediate surrounding environment. In addition, it is considered the scheme would have a negative impact by way of loss of natural skylight to the living room of the dwelling consequently, having an impact on future occupiers’ residential amenity. The erection of the garage would not respond appropriately to the locality and therefore contrary to Local Development Core Strategy Policy CS6, SAMDev Plan Policy MD2 as well as the overall aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework in requiring sustainable development. The Appeal Statement for this case that is shown in the video, was produced specifically to overcome the…

Retrospective Annex Outbuilding Planning Appeal London Borough of Brent Case Study

London Borough of Brent Council refused this retrospective application 21st December after originally validating it on 21st May. There reasons were stated as; The outbuilding by virtue of its scale and positioning has a dominant and overly prominent appearance resulting in a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the host property and the open space of the rear garden. It thus does not accord with Core Strategy CP17 and Local Plan Policy DMP1. The outbuilding is located 5 metres from this property’s ground floor habitable windows. Given the site has a low boundary wall height of 1.6m the development has already contributed to a degree of overlooking and loss of privacy to the occupants at no 18 Ambleside Road. In this regard, the development has failed to comply with DMP1. The Appeal Statement for this case that is shown in the video, and was produced specifically to overcome…

Retrospective Annex in Garden Planning Appeal Rother Council

Rother District Council refused this application on 1st March after originally validating it on 21st May the previous year. There reasons were stated as; 1 – The proposed annexe with ground floor sleeping accommodation situated within a flood zone 3 is classed as a ‘more vulnerable’ use by the Planning Practice Guidance. There was no flood risk assessment or details submitted to evaluate the risk from the development and the proposal would be contrary to Policy EN7 of the Core Strategy and paragraph 171 of The National Planning Policy Framework. 2 – The proposal fails to demonstrate why the annexe could not be an extension to the main dwelling, failing to satisfy the sequential approach taken to annexe proposals. Other options for providing annexe accommodation do not appear to have been considered and the current location forward of the building line appears as a dominant presence on the street scene.…

Retrospective Dormer Extension Dacorum Council Planning Appeal Case Study

Dacorum Borough Council refused this application 16th February after originally validating it on 10th November. There reasons were stated as; The hip-to-gable roof extension and dormer constructed without consent, by virtue of the massing and bulk, positioning and height, causes significant harm to the residential amenity of No.7 Nettlecroft. The works have resulted in an overbearing and dominant appearance when viewed from the patio of this neighbour, which is also subject to a significant loss of sunlight due to the orientation of the development. Furthermore, the addition of windows at second floor level has resulted in the garden of No.7 being significantly overlooked thereby reducing their amenity to levels below that which they could reasonably expect to enjoy. The proposal is therefore contrary to policy CS12 of the Core Strategy (2013), Saved Appendix 3 of the Dacorum Borough Local Plan (2004) and contrary to paragraph 130 of the National Planning…
