Erection of porch and canopy to front elevation. Erection of a two-storey side extension and a part single, part two storey rear extension. Formation of 1no. dormer to rear roofslope and insertion of 3no. rooflights to front roofslope.

This proposal is a gross, inelegant example of over-development. Reaching new heights, or plumbing new depths, when it comes to creating the metaphorical ‘pig with one ear’. Despite the worst aspects being restricted to the side and rear of the premises, the adverse aesthetic contravenes any consideration of good design, and the application should be refused for this reason.
