The Design and Access Statement has a number of redacted pages which prevents scrutiny of this application, i.e. 3.0 Brief and Design is only half a page the rest redacted, 4.0 is completely redacted/missing. The elevation drawings are helpful as they reveal that the extensions will sit within the open space of the flat roof and the height will not exceed the adjoining property on Iffley Road. However, we do have some concerns relating to the proposed metal lading which will visibly emphasize the extension rather than allow it merge into the streetscape. Perhaps the rationale for the finish is contained within the redacted material in the DAS. The shortcomings in the documentation need to be rectified before any decision is made.
