Planning permission obtained on appeal for house extension in West Didsbury

An appeal was allowed on 13 February 2020 for the erection of a first floor side extension at Darley Avenue, West Didsbury, Manchester.

Manchester City Council had twice refused proposals for a first floor side extension above an existing garage on the grounds that the extension, by virtue of the siting, design, scale and massing would have an overbearing impact on the neighbouring property. In granting planning permission, the Inspector agreed with the assessment by Emery Planning that the proposed extension would not result in a harmful effect on the living conditions of the occupiers of the neighbouring property and was therefore consistent with the Development Plan. View Associates were architects for the scheme.
