Planning submission – Proposal summary

This is an application for the erection of a single storey rear extension and internal alterations to a single family dwelling. The extension would be full width, 3.09m in height, and 3.5m in depth. The external materials would comprise of painted/coloured brick with stone capping detail, a circular aluminium/timber framed window, Crittall style aluminium framed doors and glazing, a parapet roof,and roof window. The extension would allow for an increase in size of the kitchen/dining area.

Design and architecture – A jigsaw and a puzzle

“The house has some very elegant external architectural detailing and features however internally it was in need of renovation and refurbishment, probably desperately so.

When I visited to carry out the measured survey it was clear that it had seen better days in the past.

The house was in a liveable condition but the internal finishes and fittings were probably at the end of their useful life. Which meant that during the design development stage I had discussions with the homeowners about how best to refurbish the house and how to do so within a budget that included the addition of a rear extension.

The front room was generous enough however the existing kitchen and dining area was rather small and it was necessary to add space to it to make it more workable and to ensure that the ground floor layout was better balanced too. The extension was also important in improving the relationship of the internal spaces with the rear garden and in allowing more light in the living areas.

It was important to the homeowners that we were able to create an open plan layout and we discussed different options of opening up the ground floor plan while making sure that the new spaces we were creating were defined in character and that could be separated when this was necessary.

Home living is about occasions, circumstances, events and routine daily life, and the spaces you design need to be able to respond to a plethora of little moments and requirements.

To achieve this as a designer you need to get the big things right (i.e. the overall layout and the balance between adjacent spaces) and you also need to get the small things right (i.e. certain distances, circulation widths, views, light and functionality).”

Planning assessment and decision – Haringey Noel Park Conservation Area.

“The depth and size of the extension would be similar in size to a number of ground floor extensions found at the back of adjacent and neighbouring dwellings. As such the extension is viewed to be a subordinate feature and in keeping with the pattern of development to this terrace.

The extension would be faced in brick and have a flat roof and includes features such as a circular window. The inclusion of a circular window is not viewed to be consistent with the fenestration/design to these original terrace properties.

However, in the context that the rear wall to this ground floor extension will not be openly visible from outside the site and in the presence of a variety of extensions and fenestration to the backs of these properties, it is very difficult to argue that harm would be caused to the conservation area. As a result of this and the fact that a similar extension can be built under ‘permitted development rights’, the character and appearance to the conservation area (i.e. the conservation area as a whole) is viewed to be not harmed, and as such left preserved.

The proposal is considered acceptable in terms of its impact on the character and appearance of the Noel Park Conservation Area, and its impact on the neighbouring amenity.

All other relevant policies and considerations, including equalities, have been taken into account. Planning permission should be granted for the reasons set out above. The details of the decision are set out in the RECOMMENDATION”

Bromley BR3 house extension planning approval

Bromley BR3 house extension planning approval

Single storey rear extension and alterations to a house at Bromley BR3 – Approval by GOAStudio London residential architecture

 Bromley BR3 house extension planning approval

We have just obtained a planning approval for one of our current projects in Bromley BR3.

For our latest Bromley BR3 house extension planning application we proposed the addition of a single storey rear / side extension to create an enlarged kitchen, dining and living area that opens up to the rear garden.

As part of our proposals we looked to remodel the existing rear pitched roof section and create a single flat roof across the existing and new floor areas.

New glazed sliding doors will open up the internal spaces to a terraced area that steps down to the garden level. We thought that our proposals were in-keeping with the character of the host building and of the terrace as well.

This is what the Bromley planners thought of our proposals and the planning submission we made on behalf of our clients:

 Bromley BR3 house extension planning approval Bromley BR3 house extension planning approval

Considerations

The application seeks planning permission for a single storey rear extension and raised platform and screening at rear. The site does not lie within any conservation area and the property is not a listed building.

The existing single storey outrigger would be demolished to facilitate the construction of the proposed extension.
Due to concern over amenity impact by way of loss of light/overshadowing upon the neighbouring property at No. 170, and in light of objections raised, the applicant has revised the proposal by removing the parapet wall at the side adjacent with No. 170.

This would reduce the proposed roof height from approximately 3m to around 2.7m along the shared boundary. The applicant has also reduced the depth of the proposed extension from 3.8m to 3.5m along the shared boundary.
The proposal includes a raised platform/terrace area at the rear and revised plans indicate this will be screened by a 1.7m high fence.

Design

Design is a key consideration in the planning process. Good design is an important aspect of sustainable development, is indivisible from good planning, and should contribute positively to making places better for people. London Plan and Bromley Local Plan (BLP) policies further reinforce the principles of the NPPF setting out a clear rationale for high quality design.

Policies 6 and 37 of the Bromley Local Plan (BLP) and the Council’s Supplementary design guidance seek to ensure that new development, including residential extensions are of a high quality design that respect the scale and form of the host dwelling and are compatible with surrounding development.

The case officer has assessed the proposal against the above mentioned policies in terms of its design, with particular regards to the impact on the character and appearance of the host building and the wider area, and having regard to the representations made by local residents. Having regard its scale, siting and appearance, the proposal would complement the host property and would not appear out of character with surrounding development or the area generally.

Neighbouring amenity

Policy 37 of the BLP seeks to protect existing residential occupiers from inappropriate development. Issues to consider are the impact of a development proposal upon neighbouring properties by way of overshadowing, loss of light, overbearing impact, overlooking, loss of privacy and general noise and disturbance.

The case officer has assessed the proposal against the above mentioned policy in terms of the impact on neighbouring residential properties with specific regard to the above-mentioned criteria. Concern has been raised from the occupiers of the adjoining terrace at No. 170 regarding the proposed extension and potential for loss of light/outlook. The applicant has responded to these concerns by reducing the height of the extension along the shared boundary from 3m to 2.7m and the depth from 3.8m to 3.5m.

Having regard to the revised plans, it is not considered that a significant loss of amenity with particular regard to light, outlook, prospect or privacy would arise.

Bromley BR3 house extension planning assessment and conclusion

Having had regard to the above it is considered that the development in the manner proposed is acceptable in that it would not result in a significant loss of amenity to local residents nor impact detrimentally on the character of the area.

New planning approval Rear garden flat extension Westminster NW6

Planning approval for the addition of a single storey rear extension to a garden flat in Westminster, NW6. To include the replacement of windows to the front elevation.

 New planning approval Rear garden flat extension Westminster NW6

The new planning approval for a rear garden flat extension Westminster NW6 was issued by the Westminster planning department in October 2022.

We have recently obtained full planning approval for the erection of a single storey side and rear extension at lower ground floor level and replacement of windows to front elevation. This application was a renewal of previous expired granted planning permission granted in March 2017.

In terms of design, the extension will not be visible from the street and is considered to be in a sufficiently discreet location and subservient in scale as to ensure that is does not detract from the character of the property of the surrounding area constructed of appropriate materials. Furthermore there are other similar examples of extensions of this nature permitted along Kilburn Park Road.

The proposed works will include the use of high quality durable materials and double glazing which will increase the energy efficiency of the building. The proposals are considered to comply with the relevant policies and therefore be acceptable in terms of design and sustainability.

The internal layouts aim to improve the accommodation and to provide an openplan, flexible, and high quality floorspace and will allow diversity of use and multifunctional spaces for a wide range of occupants.

The proposed extension will comply with the minimum standards in the revised Building Regulations (June 2022) and includes a landscaped courtyard area to encourage biodiversity (Policy 34B Urban greening).

The proposed extension is set away from these windows by approximately 3.6m, as an area of yard has been left clear adjacent to the main rear elevation of the building. This keeps the additional bulk to the party wall away from these windows. While the windows will experience some increased sense of enclosure and may result in an impact on light, given the location of the extension, set away from the windows, and the orientation of the site, it is not considered that this would be so significant as to justify refusal. It is considered the height of the proposal is on balance acceptable in this instance in terms of the impact to the garden.

The proposal is therefore considered to comply with the relevant policies and be acceptable in terms of
residential amenity.

CONCLUSION – The application was recommended for approval.

To include the replacement of three timber windows to front and one timber window to rear with heritage uPVC double glazed windows – Orford Road Conservation Area, Waltham Forest in September 2022.

 New planning approval Conservation Area Waltham Forest E17

The new planning approval conservation area Waltham Forest E17  was issued by the Waltham Forest planning department.

We have recently obtained full planning approval to replace the existing windows with new windows for a first floor flat fronting Orford Road and within the boundaries of the Orford Road Conservation Area in Waltham Forest.

We proposed the replacement of the existing 2-over-2 Victorian timber framed sash windows with 1-over-1 upvc framed sash windows that match the appearance of the Victorian sash windows in terms of appearance, finish, colour and detailing.

The proposed replacement window product is a class-leading window with woodgrain finishes, industry-leading slim sightlines, putty-effect glass lines, timber-style mechanical joints and our in-house designed run-through sash horns. Every detail has been designed and engineered to closely resemble the features of a period timber window, while continuing to offer all the benefits of modern materials and manufacturing techniques.

1-over-1 sash windows are a common feature along Orford Road and in the vicinity of the application property.

This includes adjacent properties and properties directly opposite the application property. The upvc window frames have been expertly manufactured to match the appearance of timber frames and we do not propose to replace the existing windows with typical upvc frames that would not fit with the property and would not fit with the character of the conservation area.

New planning approval Rear house extension Enfield N21

New planning approval Rear house extension Enfield N21

Rear house extension Enfield N21 – We were appointed to design the renovations and extensions for a single family dwelling in a conservation area at Enfield N21. We have just obtained planning approval for a single storey rear ground floor extension to create a combined kitchen, dining and living area that opens up to the rear garden.

The approval was issued by the Enfield planning department. 

We are currently in the process of preparing the required technical and structural information we will need to obtain the next set of approvals before the contractors start with the building works later this year.

We proposed the addition of a single storey rear extension that added 2.5m in depth to the existing rear projection and the remodelling to the existing roof along the rear and side; associated internal and external alterations will create an open plan kitchen, living and dining area that opens up to the rear garden.

Our proposals were in-keeping with the character of the host dwelling and of the terrace as well.

The addition of a small rear extension is in-keeping with the character of the existing house in regards to its scale, setting, mass, materials and the detailing of the new doors and windows.

The new flat roof relates to the existing upper flat roof and the overall composition aims to enhance the character of this conservation area while at the same time modernising this dwelling and creating a better relationship between the living spaces and the rear garden area.

The proposed extension does not affect the amenity of the adjacent properties and we do not propose to alter the access around the front of the building or the access to the property in general.

New planning approval rear house extension Barnet EN4

New planning approval rear house extension Barnet EN4

Rear house extension Barnet EN4 – We were appointed to design the renovations and the addition of a rear extension for a single family dwelling at Barnet EN4.

We have just obtained planning approval for a single storey rear ground floor extension to create a combined kitchen, dining and living area that opens up to the rear garden.  

The approval also includes the addition of a raised rear terraced area with steps down to the lower garden area.

We are currently in the process of preparing the required technical and structural information we will need to obtain the next set of approvals before the contractors start with the building works later this year.

Here are extracts from the case officer’s report that explains how our proposals were assessed and approved by the Barnet planning department for this planning approval rear house extension Barnet EN4:

“The Council’s SPD ‘Residential Design Guidance’ states that extensions should normally be subordinate to the original house, respect the original building and should not be overly dominant. It further states that the depth of a single storey rear extension, normally considered acceptable for a semi-detached property is 3.5 metres.

The proposed extension would run along the boundary with the adjoining neighbour at Park Road. Its depth along this boundary would be 4m. Its width would span the full width of the property at 6.6m wide. The rear of the property sits on a decline resulting in a variance in height of the proposed extension. The eaves height would be 3m with a maximum height 5.7m from garden level.

The proposed extension at depth of 4m is not policy. However in the context of this particular site, both neighbour have either an existing ground floor elements in situ or set back in the plot. The character of the area is such that several neighbouring properties have benefited from rear extensions. In principle a single storey extension would, on its own, be appropriate.

Policy DM01 requires that all proposals should preserve and enhance the local character of the area. This proposal also includes a patio to the proposed single storey rear extension. The proposed rear patio would have a maximum depth of 1.4m.

The principle of a patio would not be considered of detriment to the character of the surrounding area, the depth and height of this proposal have been amended and when added to the proposed addition and 1.7m privacy screens, it is now considered to be appropriate.

Regarding the surrounding properties, it is notable that the immediate neighbouring properties do benefit from single storey rear extensions. The proposed amended impact of all the proposed elements, the overall scale would be an appropriate addition with the existing character of the host property not resulting in harm to character and appearance of the surrounding area.

Conclusion
Having taken all material considerations into account, it is considered that subject to compliance with the attached conditions, the proposed development would have an acceptable impact on the character and appearance of the application site, the street scene and the locality. The development is not considered to have an adverse impact on the amenities of neighbouring occupiers. This application is therefore recommended for approval.”
