Side Extension Planning Appeal Hounslow London

The refusal reasons given by the London Borough of Hounslow were fairly subjective and based around the fact they felt the development would be incongruous, overly prominent, dominant, and as a result would harm the appearance and street scene in that area.

For this appeal we produced a 21 page detailed appeal statement, working our…
