59 Quarry Road Oxford OX3 8NX

Erection of single storey side extension. Alterations to roof to form hip to gable and formation of 1no. dormer to rear roofslope. Insertion of 2no. rooflights to front roofslope. (Amended description)

The dormer to the ‘rear’ roof slope is very large and of uncompromisingly ugly appearance. Owing to the orientation of the property to the street, this dormer would be highly visible, and, we consider, detrimental to the visual amenity of the neighbourhood, which falls only just outside the Headington Quarry Conservation Area. We would urge refusal of this application on the grounds of poor design.
