74 Stratford Street Oxford OX4 1SW

Erection of a single storey rear extension. Formation of 1no. dormer to rear roof slope, removal of 1no. rooflight and insertion of 1no. roof light to front roof slope. 

Oxford Civic Society has some concerns about the wrap-around single storey back extension to this property. According to the plan it will extend approximately 3 metres down the garden and beyond the existing building line. To the side it will extend right to the boundary. It is stated that the impact on the neighbouring 72 Stratford Street is within the rules. However it would seem to create a tunnel effect on the other side of the fence, and we would ask the officer to check that this is not unacceptably overbearing.
