Comments: I write on behalf of Hoylake Community Planning Forum to confirm our consultation response to the Planning Application Ref No APP/17/00578
3-storey extension to the rear and side of an existing Victorian property to provide additional living and sleeping accommodation
17 NORTH PARADE, HOYLAKE, CH47 2BU
In considering the information submitted to date and having reviewed the proposals we make the following comments:
The submitted drawings lack sufficient detail of the relative positions of existing windows of the directly adjacent properties, No18 North Parade and No 30 Government Road. The applicant/agent should be asked to include this additional information. Only then can any understanding of how the neighbours may be adversely affected by the scale of the extension be properly assessed.
The lack of a streetscene elevation along Government Road makes it impossible to understand how the direct neighbours at No 30 Government Road may be adversely affected by the scale of the extension. Proposed Elevation A on submitted drawing AL(–)017 should include the front elevation of No 30 Government Road to alleviate this.
It should be noted that No 30 Government Road has two existing windows at first floor level on the elevation facing this proposed rear extension. The submitted plans do not show the relative position of these existing windows and their close proximity to the proposed extension.
This planning application should be properly assessed to determine its effect on daylight and sunlight to neighbouring properties. We expect that the tests to be used for this assessment are those as set out in the Building Research Establishment (BRE) document ‘Site Layout Planning for Daylight and Sunlight: A guide to good practice (2011)’. In particular the 25° and the 45° rules for adjacent neighbours existing windows.
