Recommendation submitted 23-12-18

We cannot support an application for yet more boxy roof dormers in the area. We are not concerned about the roof being raised slightly (equally to both houses) to achieve adequate headroom but we are concerned about the ugliness of the proposed dormers, particularly the dormer to the 'side' elevation which is, in fact, fully visible from the intersection of five roads. We would suggest that the dormers might have less impact on the character of the local area if they were clad with tiles/slates to match the existing roofs, rather than painted render which will make them extremely prominent.
