Planning / Mon 26th Oct 2020 at 10:50am

A PLANNING application for an extension in a house in Kingsmoor Road has been by approved by Harlow Council’s Planning Committee.

It was approved by a deciding vote from the chair of the committee, cllr Phil Waite after the votes were tied.

The application sought planning permission for the development of a first floor extension on an existing ground floor element to the rear, replacement of the flat roof element on the south at the first floor level with a hipped roof and replacement of a flat roof over the existing north flank at the ground floor level with a mono-pitched roof.

The proposed rear first floor extension would be 6.5m deep by 7.8m wide (to match the ground floor rear element). It would have a hipped roof over to match with the existing front. The replacement hipped roof over the south side would be 0.5m lower than the ridge of the existing roof.

There would be one proposed window in the north flank wall at the first floor level which would serve a bedroom. There would be two windows in the south flank wall at the first floor level which would serve non-habitable space. The existing door in the kitchen would be replaced with a patio door.

Two objections have been received on grounds of the following concerns (in summary):
 Scaffolding and any boundary treatments which could be placed over the boundary lines and onto the driveway of No.17, obstructing access.
 Concerns regarding existing foundations and access to No.17.
 The proposed additional 2 storey extension would block out a considerable amount of natural light to No.17 (side and rear) and would over-shadow the adjoining properties due to the proposed height and size of the extension.
 The proposed extension would cause persistent noise nuisance and revoke the ability to continue working from home.
 The proposed 2x windows to right side would overlook front lounge of No17, and proposed 3x windows at rear of the property would overlook the front door, side patio and rear gardens of No.17/18, resulting in eliminating privacy.

Film regarding the application can be seen below from the 1hr 42 minute point.

The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.

All new external work shall be carried out in materials of such colour or texture and with architectural detailing to match the existing facing work of the building.

Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 3, Schedule 2, Part 1 Class A of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development ) Order 2015 (including any Order revoking or re-enacting that Order, with or without modification) the window proposed within the south elevation at the first floor level of the development hereby approved shall be obscure glazed and non-opening below 1.7m from the finished level of the pertaining floor. Thereafter the said window shall be retained and maintained in this form at all times.
