Demolition of garages and external staircase and erection of two-storey extension incorporating accommodation in the roof to provide additional self-contained student accommodation comprising 6 bed spaces.
This application follows the refusal of an earlier scheme and the dismissal of an appeal. The existing building is an interesting example of the Arts and Crafts style dating from 1916, now used for student accommodation, but is an awkward site to develop. The present application is a greatly improved concept of an extension in the same style as the present house and on the whole creates a pleasing appearance, so the Society has written to suggest approving this application.
