Council planners have rejected retrospective plans for a two-storey rear extension in Stanningley for being ‘unsuitable’.
Applicant Harrogate-based Constructabuild Ltd wanted planning permission for the extension, a rear dormer window, front rooflights, new first floor side window, paving to front garden and new driveway at the property on Daleside Road.
Building work had already started on the site before the developer applied for planning permission. Following three local objections, council planning officers have looked at the proposals and refused them.
A planning officer’s report concludes:
“It is considered that the development does not comply with the aims and intentions of all relevant policies and will cause detrimental harm to visual and residential amenity. As such planning permission cannot be granted.”
The report said some elements of the development were acceptable, but said other elements led to an overdevelopment of the site, adding: “the two-storey rear extension and rear dormer window, cumulatively represent an uncharacteristic form of development, adding disproportionate additions which are of a poor design…”
