Madeley, Telford, Shropshire.
New contemporary extension and garage conversion approved.
Application number: TWC/2017/0954
Application type: Full Planning
Site address: 14 Westerkirk Drive, Madeley, Telford, Shropshire, TF7 5RJ
Proposal: Erection of a single storey side and rear extension
Following an initial planning consultation with the applicant a scheme was decided for a single-storey rear extension that would open up the living area and add bespoke bi-fold doors and roof lights to bring a light contemporary feel to the property whilst allowing a link to te newly converted garage via a new utilit area.
Concersn were raised over the impact of the schem on 12 Westerkirk Drive as this detached property lies to the West of the applicant site and there are no level differences present, however, 12 Westerkirk Drive does lie forward of the application site and a close boarded fence lies in between the two properties.
There will be a distance of approximately 5.3 metres in between the side elevation of the proposed extension and the rear elevation of this neighbouring property. No windows are proposed in the side elevation of the extension which will face out towards this neighbouring property, however even if windows were to be installed under permitted development after completion these would not result in any undue loss of privacy.
Therefore; due to satisfactory scale, design and boundary treatments, officers are satisfied that the proposal will not result in a significantly detrimental impact on the amenity of the occupants of 12 Westerkirk Drive.
The application sailed through the planning process and no laterations or ammendmnets were required by the Planning Department and the applicant is now free to implement the permission, and as you can see below has made a great job of the work.
