Description of application – Loft conversion with a half gable, rear dormer and front rooflights.


Oral representations in support of the application were received at the meeting.


In response to a question from Councillor Fawthrop, the applicant stated that he would not be prepared to remove the front roof lights and wished to proceed with the full application. Without rooflights, he would consider building in accordance with the previously granted Certificate of Lawful Development.


Councillor Fawthrop stated that while the half-hip element was more in keeping with the ASRC than the Certificate of Lawful Development, a balanced approach was needed. The two proposed windows at the front detracted considerably from the symmetry of the semi-detached property and its neighbour. If built without the windows, plenty of light would still enter through the side windows. Removal of the roof lights was also preferred.


Members having considered the report and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED as recommended, for the reason set out in the report of the Assistant Director, Planning.
