This house lies within the St Clements and Iffley Road Conservation Area. It is one of a group of three Arts and Crafts style houses which, according to the Conservation Area appraisal, “add to the overall diversity of Iffley Road and the Conservation Area as a whole.” This application seeks to add a third storey to the property, thereby damaging the cottage-style appearance of the house and the coherence of the group. The mansard roof which engulfs the gables is also objectionable, but our main objection is to the principle of the extra story. We urge that this application be refused
