Following the refusal of prior approval to extend a semi-detached property with a 6m rear extension under permitted development, on the grounds that it would result in an overbearing visual impact and overshadow neighbouring amenities, Bloomfields took this determination to appeal and, supported by a Daylight and Sunlight Assessment, argued that a single storey extension would not result in the harmful impacts suggested by the Local Authority.

The Inspector ultimately agreed with Bloomfields’ stance and allowed the appeal, stating that;

“the proposed flat roof design means that, overall, the appeal proposal’s height, scale and bulk would not be of a level which would give rise to significant additional overshadowing, nor an undue sense of enclosure [of the neighbouring property and its garden area]. Neither would its overall presence significantly reduce the current aspect enjoyed by those occupants to an extent that would be overbearing.”

We are delighted to have been able to deliver another positive result at appeal.
