If a retrospective application is refused, it’s the end of the road right? Wrong! MZA recently helped a client appeal a refused retrospective application for a conservatory. The application was refused on the grounds that its appearance and size were harmful to the living conditions of the neighbouring property, as well as the character and appearance of the property and the wider area.
In support of the appeal, our team produced a statement which argued that the development does not affect the neighbouring property in terms of daylight, sunlight, outlook, or through overshadowing. Additionally, its size complies with policies, therefore it does not cause harm as it is in keeping with the character and appearance of other extensions in the local area. Our argument was enough to overturn the council’s decision and receive an approval from the Inspector!
