We prepared and submitted the appeal against the refusal of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to grant planning permission for this two storey, semi-detached dwelling in the East Sheen Conservation Area. The Council objected to the two-storey extension of the rear outrigger and hipped-roof dormer. Their case had not been based on a site visit and had not taken account other developments in the area. We successfully argued the proposal would not be out of character with the surrounding area and would match the scale, form and appearance of the host dwelling.
The Inspector concluded that the proposed alterations would be appropriately sympathetic and respectful to the character and appearance of the existing building in terms of siting, design, height, bulk and mass.
