This planned extension is very much submissive to existing housing estate it is designed in. It adopts materials, details, windows sizes and proportions, roof pitches. It is recessed from street allowing still to read houses as detached. Massing, while proposed work is to project 4m deep into the backyard garden, is similar in size and character and similarly sloping roofs planes. Natural light access to neighbouring houses and overshadowing of neighbouring properties is negligible, despite close proximity to one of the boundaries. All of the above is of concern to Planning Policy Strategy 6 (PPS6) and interest Planners who will consider granting the statutory planning approval. The hope is there that it will be a smooth planning process in this case.
