40 Knights Road Oxford OX4 6DG

18 March 2018

  Erection of a 2 x 2-bed dwelling house with bin shelter and parking. Part 2 storey, part single storey extension to rear of existing house.

The proposed slatted timber waste bin storage shed for No. 40 Knights Road is unsatisfactory, since it obstructs the main window to the living room. The proposed cycle storage provision is unacceptable, since access would involve manoeuvring bicycles through the front door, hall, kitchen and dining room, around the furniture in all these rooms, in the case of both houses. This clearly conflicts with policy on safe and convenient sheltered bicycle accommodation. Consent should be withheld pending satisfactory resolution of this issue.
