Erection of part single part two storey side extension. Insertion of 1no window to rear elevation. Alteration to 2no windows to front elevation. Insertion of 1no door front elevation.

This is an unusual application for a ‘home for a large family’:  essentially, the extension forms what could too easily be used as two separate dwellings, with separate staircases, facilities and doors etc. It is also unusual in that on the proposed first floor of the main dwelling there are 6 bedrooms with no facilities whatsoever, only a bathroom downstairs next to the 7th bedroom.  The two bedrooms in the extension share a shower.  There is no mention of provisions for wheelie bins, parking and bicycle storage for the extended home, but there is a shed on the location map which may or may not be used for these.
