41, James Watt Terrace, Barrow-in-Furness
Erection of a two storey rear extension forming ground floor kitchen, shower room and shed and first floor sun lounge with patio area
Two storey extensions to the rear of terraced dwellings will not be permitted where they adversely affect the amenities of neighbouring properties by virtue of loss of sunlight or privacy or by creation of an overbearing impact.
The creation of patio areas and balconies over house extensions will be refused where they are considered to represent an unacceptable loss of privacy for the occupiers of neighbouring properties or to occupy a prominent position and be a detrimental intrusion into the street scene.
Development within or affecting the setting of Conservation Areas will only be permitted where it preserves or enhances the character or appearance of the Area. In particular it should:
1.Respect the character of existing architecture and any historical associations by having due regard to positioning and grouping of buildings, form, scale, enclosure, detailing and use of traditional materials;
2.Respect existing hard and soft landscape features including open space, trees, walls and surfacing;
3.Respect traditional plot boundaries and frontage widths; and
4.Respect significant views into or out of the Areas.
a)Listed Building Consent; or
b)Planning consent for alterations to un-listed buildings within Conservation Areas or new buildings affecting the setting of a Listed Building
must show full details unless otherwise agreed with the Planning Authority.
