Removal of existing rear extensions. Erection of a part single, part two storey rear extension. Extension of existing side lean-to extension roof. Replacement of 1no. window to 1no. door to rear elevation. Removal of 1no. window to side elevation. Replacement of 2no. rooflights to side elevation and insertion of 2no. rooflights.
The very extensive work proposed here contains a glaringly-incongruous aspect that the Oxford Civic Society wishes to raise. It concerns the design and the materials proposed for the bi-fold kitchen doors at the rear of the property. We feel that the design does not sit well on the existing building which is located in the North Oxford Conservation Area. This is an area and a building which deserves respect: most of the other proposals for No 12 do, in our view this element does not and should be revisited.
