    Erection of a first floor rear extension.  It is likely that this proposal will have an unacceptable impact on the neighbouring house at 88 Westbury Avenue. The proposed changes to the first floor are very close to the boundary and will loom over the rear windows of the neighbours. This may be unacceptably overbearing. The extension will be…

    Erection of a two storey rear extension. Formation of 1no. rear dormer in association with a loft conversion.  There is a Design and Access statement included here, but it’s far too brief. Why are there as many kitchens as bedrooms (4 each?). Is this building used as flats (but there are no bathrooms and only 2 shower…

    Erection of a single storey rear and side extension. Conversion of garage to create habitable space. Provision of bin and bicycle storage.

    Sub-bdivision of existing 3 storey dwellinghouse to 2×1 bed flats. Insertion of 1no rooflight to front elevation. The internal design seems fine.  However, when subdividing attention is especially required for the placing of wheelie-bins, cycle storage, public transport etc (there is no parking here):  none are mentioned in the application, and for the ‘existing front…

    39 Fern Hill Road Oxford OX4 2JW

    30 January 2020

    Erection of a two storey side extension. This application fails to mention that the extension, in blocking access to the garage, takes away a parking place;  they want to be able to park two cars in the front instead.  The trouble with that is that there is no room for or mention of wheelie bins…
