Proposed Development: Single-storey rear extension
Following the initial discussion wit the applicant a single-storey rear extension was agreed on whereby the extension would forma a new entrance to the property and provide additional storage space for the kitchen and replace the less than complimentary lean to extension. The use of grey upvc and render would give the extension a contemporary feel and form a new domestic adjunct to the main dwelling.
The application sailed through the planning process and we are now awaiting instruction to undertake a full plans building regulations application. More details to follow.
This application is a cost effective solution to a storage and circulation issues within the existing property.
