Whilst we accept that a great deal of thought has gone into this application, we cannotsupport it, on the grounds that it looks lumpen and ungainly from the front and side and quitehorrendous from the rear. We understand that it is not easy to work around the existing split-levelarrangement at the rear of the properties, but this does not mean that an unsatisfactory end resultis acceptable. The three pane casement windows proposed to the roof level extensions are out ofkeeping with the character of the existing properties and the rendered finish to the large reardormer only serves to emphasise its bulk and its ungainly position, right on the rear corner of thehouses. The veluxes on the side dormers, to provide ventilation to the en-suites, look fussy andout of place. Despite all good intentions to retain the balanced appearance of the two houses asmatching semis, we are not convinced that the end result is acceptable, particularly within aConservation Area setting. We recommend refusal.
