Design & Development Associates have obtained a Householder Planning Approval for a single storey rear extension to a detached property in Bournemouth.
Our client was seeking to remove the existing lean-too style conservatory and replace this with a single storey extension for a new living area. At present, the current lean too was uninsulated so the replacement with a new habitable area would be a huge improvement. Our client was keen to preserve the character features of the property, so we opted for a new flat roof extension with a parapet, ensuring there would be no exposed flat roof fascia which could detract from the property’s character.
The extension would be abutting an existing two storey projection, so a Householder Planning Application would be required. This is due to the fact that under Permitted Development legislation, the extension would have been deemed as a side extension to the two storey projection, which was over half the width of the original house.
We therefore recommended our client submit a Householder Planning Application before works commence. To achieve this certificate we firstly undertook a detailed measured survey of the property to produce existing floor plans and elevations to show the council the existing arrangements. Our architectural designers then undertook a design proposal and submitted this as a Householder Planning Application once the client was happy with the design.
The application was approved in the first week of 2021 – which is certainly a good way to start the year!
