Residents object to planning application in Upper Hook

RESIDENTS have objected to a planning application in Upper Hook, Harlow.

The application site is located on Upper Hook, a residential cul-de-sac taken from the north side of Tye Green Village. The residential estate comprises of a group of six detached dwellings with virtually identical design. The boundaries of the rear of the properties at the end of the cul- de-sac are lined by trees.

The application seeks planning permission to construct a two-storey side extension and a two- storey rear extension. The application indicates the use of matching materials.

The proposed side extension would be attached to the west side of the main house, and measures 3.5m in width. The original submission includes a side extension that is 0.5m set back from the front elevation.

After discussion with the case officer, the applicant submitted amendments to bring the side extension in line with the existing front building line of the host property, and amended the roof height to achieve a continuous ridgeline and eaves height.

Two objections were received from local residents. They object to the proposal by reasons of the bulky appearance being out of keeping with other properties on Upper Hook, and would result in overshadowing and overlooking of the neighbouring properties.

The application will be discussed at the Harlow Council planning committee on Wednesday night at 7.30pm, Civic Offices, Water Gardens.
