substantial, three storey, end of terrace property within a conservation area. The application was to demolish single and two storey elements of the dwelling and replace with a full two-storey rear extension. The Council’s refusal was based on the extension being an incongruous addition to the dwelling and the impact on the character and appearance of the surrounding area. We argued that the development does not adversely affect any of the key characteristics or significance of the conservation area. The extension is designed to be subservient, and its impact is limited due to the position of the dwelling and the extent of the plot. The proposal was therefore compliant with local and national policies,
The planning inspector agreed with our argument and allowed the appeal.
