Raising of ridge height. Formation of 1.no rear dormer window and Insertion of 3no. front rooflights in association with loft conversion (Amended description)
The raising of the ridge height to the roof of this end-of-terrace house would alter the integrity of the appearance of the whole terrace, and set a precedent for similar applications involving semi-detached and terraced properties elsewhere. This could represent significant harm to the environment, and we note that in this case, the proposed works do not increase the potential occupation of the property since they provide only study space. We therefore urge that careful consideration be given to these aspects before consent is granted.
