    But how else would you 'design' a roof enlargement giving acceptable headroom, not going above the ridge, and not looking like a portacabin?

    Well , I suppose the obvious answer is to design it so it didn't look like a portacabin :!:

    The whole point of having a planning control regime is to prevent the majority having to put up with the stupid shanty town desires of a few inconsiderate a holes.

    Well, we're now into different territory - private rights -v- public rights.
    In any case, if it's on the back of the house......?

    The back of the house? You could see that monstrosity from the moon.

    And if you want your decking 301mm off the ground, or a shed for the mower on the side of the house you need to go through the whole planning process.:rolleyes:
