    Old Garage Pier removal

    Hi guys, I'm going to being renovating a downstairs room which was originally a garage (already converted with extension over the top). The outer wall was converted to a cavity wall when the upstairs extension was done. From what I can see they left in the original wall piers from when the...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    Sorry to bring this back to the top, but just as an update I was given planning permission today! Makes a big difference when the people making the decisions actually meet face to face and things are explained. Just got to get the drainage plan sorted and its all systems go.

    By the way here's a pic of my neighbours garage over the back of me, you can see the back of my house in the distance. Taking up at least 50% of the front of his garden. My plot size is 270Sqm, the proposed garage is 28Sqm. MT

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    Funny you say about the position of the lamp post, up until a couple of months ago it was at the end of the driveway where the bricks end! I requested they move it and it turns out it wasn't in the correct position in the first place (it is now). I don't think the neighbours would have been...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    Hi Guys, Bit of an update. I've had the hedging put back in although I'm a little disappointed at the gaps (see pics) although I'm told by the gardener they will grow into each other, I just hope the planning people see the vision too! The planning officer is visiting on Thursday so fingers...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    I was looking back through some previous approved applications for the area and one of them was for a double garage which had a condition stating its approved as long as there's adequate screening from the road side. I guess the same could be applied here so the bushes cannot be removed in the...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    Thanks for the feedback. The garage is actually based on a Sutcliffe garage (Balmoral range) Its a low pitched roof version so it doesn't raise above the surrounding bushes (one of the neighbours concerns - but otherwise the road is happy) Yes I agree the front and side elevations...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    @Architexeter You are correct, I had only paid for planning advice so far although I had an architect draw up the correct format plans and they were submitted yesterday for a formal application. So everyone gets a better idea of my situation, I've uploaded some pics; This is a plan...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    They were saying its a large and imposing structure on the street scene and not in-keeping with the other buildings in the road. As I said you won't even be able to see it from the road, only if you walk on to my driveway. I also specified the garage to be of a brick finish with red terracotta...

    Planning refused for double garage at front of house

    Hi guys, This is my first post so please go easy, I paid my local council for planning advice to erect a double garage at the front of my house. We have plenty of land for it to go and with the bushing and fencing around it wouldn't actually be seen from the road (none of the neighbours have...
