|Conditions / Reason for Refusal:
The development hereby permitted shall be commenced before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.
In order to comply with the requirements of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
The materials to be used in the construction of the external surfaces of the development hereby permitted shall match those used in the existing building.
In order to ensure a satisfactory appearance in the interests of visual amenity.
The extension(s) hereby approved shall only be used as ancillary accommodation to the existing dwelling and shall not be used, either solely or by incorporation of other accommodation, as a separate additional dwelling.
The Local Planning Authority does not consider the premises suitable for subdivision into separate dwelling units by reason of lack of space, amenity and car parking requirements.
According to the Environment Agency’s flood maps, the site is at risk of surface water flood risk. Further information about flood risk is available on the gov.uk website under the flood warning information service. As a minimum it is recommended that flood resilient construction is used and that the floor level of the proposed extension should be no lower than that of the existing building to minimise the risk of flooding.
