Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Planning Application for loft conversion with contemporary zinc clad dormers, and a single-storey rear extension submitted.
Following an initial planning appraisal a formal planning application was formulated and has been submitted to Shropshire County Council who are the Local Planning Authority for Shrewsbury. The application seeks to gainn permission for a ground floor extension to extend the existing kitxhen and provide dormers to the front and rear of the property to serve a newly converted loft space.
This planning application seeks full planning permission for the erection of single storey rear extension; the installation of a dormer window to the rear elevation and x2 roof lights to the front roofline to facilitate a loft conversion. The scheme originally submitted included for a dormer window to the front elevation, however, on the request of officers and the concerns raised by the Councils Conservation Officer that in order to retain the visual rhythm of the street scene that the front elevation dormer should be removed from the scheme.
14 Meole Crescent is an existing dwelling sited within a four unit dwelling the design of which Covers most of Meole Crescent. The dwellings date from the mid- 20th Century and are located outside of the Meole Brace Conservation Area boundary. This property lies on the east side of the Crescent, with the Conservation Area boundary running along the rear property line at the back of the rear gardens.
En-Plan: Planning & Architecture have a proven track record of delivering extensions and loft conversions and as the project progresses from concept to completion we will undertake a building regs application to ensure the detail building specification is to standard and give the clients the peace of mind that the work will be completed to an approved standard.
The proposal was assessed by the Councils Conservation Officer who has stated that the revised scheme has now proposed roof lights to the front roof slope which is considered to be acceptable and these should be good quality low profile/flush fitting 'conservation style' products. They have also advised that the comments from the agent regarding the recessive colour finish to the rear dormer and dormer windows has been noted and that it is likely to be acceptable in the context of the property. In addition, En-Plan also advised that their clients are happy to receive an external materials pre-commencement condition on any planning permission that may be granted.
Policy CS6 ‘Sustainable Design and Development Principles’ of the Shropshire Core Strategy indicates that development should safeguard the residential and local amenity. Having regard to the proposed orientation and distance away from neighbouring properties it is considered that the proposed windows will not result in
any detrimental impact from overlooking or loss of light. It is felt that the proposed layout, design and scale of the development in relation to the boundary will also not result in any detrimental overbearing impact or result in any noise disturbance.
