 Subdivision of existing dwelling to create an additional first floor flat (Use Class C3). Alterations to existing dormer and formation of 1No. dormer to north east elevation. Creation of 2No. windows to south east elevation and insertion 1No. window to north east elevation

We would comment that although the floor areas of Flats 4 and 5 as indicated appear not unreasonably small, it is evident that the living area is considerably reduced by the sloping ceiling and reduced headroom. No sections are provided to enable verification of the usable floor space, but consent should be conditional upon provision of evidence that this is adequate.
