    Erection of a single storey rear extension. There appear to be a number of potentially serious shortcomings in this application to which several objectors have drawn attention. The question of a possible change of use should also be clarified. These issues should be satisfactorily resolved before the application is considered and determined.

    Change of use from Offices (B1(a)) to provision of education (F1(a)).
