Demolition of existing single storey rear extension and timber decking. Erection of single storey rear extension and two storey bay extension to front. Insertion of 2no. rooflights to front roofslope and formation of 1no. dormer to rear roofslope in association with loft conversion.

OCS would like to see a D&AS for this application that provides detail of precautions taken regarding the foundations and construction for the first floor extension and the proposed attic conversion. The location of a toilet in the ground floor lounge is inappropriate without proper and entire separation from the room – perhaps the creation of a small corridor between lounge and kitchen –  or for it to be relocated elsewhere within the ground floor extension.  Arrangements for bin and cycle storage has been omitted and should be provided. We note the property has no side or rear access. Until these matters are dealt with a decision should be deferred.
