Un-neighbourly development which would harm the amenities of adjoining properties
NON MATERIAL CONSIDERATIONS:
The Occupiers of 37, 39 and 43 James Watt Terrace all informed.
“I would like to object strongly to the proposed extension reference no. 57/2005/1824. This large concrete block house will restrict the natural light from entering all levels of my house for most of the day. It will also remove the panoramic views from my upper floor windows of Walney Channel, Piel Island and views as far as Blackpool.
This is because the abutting wall measuring approximately 22 feet by 24 feet is proposed to affix 20 inches from my double storey staircase window and of a superior height.
Why should I and future owners have the only house with limited natural light and limited outlook, this being the only house to be obstructed by a proposed two storey extension.
All other houses have retained the original kitchen extension un-modified externally which results in the natural curvature of the land being reproduced by the main house roofs and the kitchen extension roofs.
Some acceptable modifications to the lower level outhouses have been constructed but none have been built to the height of even the kitchen extensions and are therefore of limited intrusion both visually and architecturally. This is certainly not the case with this proposed extension.
Its impact visually would be horrendous overlooking as it does the Dockland Regeneration Area. If it is considered for acceptance I would like to address the meeting”.
“I have as yet been unable to view the plans on my computer for 41 James Watt Terrace. However, after a brief conversation with the neighbour on the other side of the said property I am concerned about the overall height of the proposed building work.”
“I have no objections to make regarding this application. The proposal does not add any bedrooms and does not impact on existing off street parking provision.”
