This section provides a commentary on planning applications and developments and the work we do in this area. From June 2018 it relies on links to our new planning portal for details of specific applications, and complements this by offering a broader thematic treatment. Also from June 2018, this section covers individual planning applications and wider developments, which were previously presented in separate sections.

We have reviewed this application and take the view that the proposed deck (already constructed) is extremely high and domineering in relation to the houses on either side.  Furthermore, the proposed deck allows unacceptable overlooking and loss of privacy not only to the rear gardens but also to windows of habitable rooms at first floor level.  We recommend refusal.
