is a proposal for a Loft Conversion
on a semi-detached property in Eastham.
The property is set on a long road
of similar properties built around
the mid 1930’s, a large number
of which have already added dormers
and other roof alterations to the
other half of the property already
had a loft conversion. The proposed
conversion would seek to balance the
appearance of the properties by mirroring
the existing construction.
was not a view shared by the Planning
Dept., who regarded the proposal as
‘unsympathetic and alien to
the design of the original dwelling’
and ‘would appear incongruous
in the street scene and would detract
from visual amenity’ and for
those reasons refused Planning Permission
for the conversion.
of the Planning Departments refusal
is attached below.
on from the refusal, an appeal was
made to the Planning Inspectorate,
which argued against the Planning
Departments reasons for refusal with
regard to their own planning guidelines
Planning Inspector agreed with our
arguments made for allowing the Appeal
and gave formal Planning Permission
for the loft conversion.
