41 Park Town Oxford OX2 6SL

5 August 2018

Demolition of existing garage and removal of existing chimneys. Erection of a single storey side and rear extension. Erection of a single storey extension to west elevation. Erection of a first floor extension to south elevation. Increase in boundary wall. |

Although this is not the most significant element in the Park Town development, and previous accretions have not necessarily been very sympathetic, we do consider that every opportunity should be taken to preserve and enhance the character and quality of the built environment; this application goes some way in this respect, but we are unconvinced that the proposed design of the most visible element, the single-storey flat-roofed extension on the west side, is entirely appropriate, in its proportions, materials or fenestration. We would urge reconsideration of these aspects of the proposals. We also note that no mention is made of arrangements for car parking, bin storage or bicycle storage, and we believe these omissions should be made good.
