Neighbour loses fight against extension

A WOMAN has won approval for a two-storey extension to her home despite an objection by her neighbour.

Kirsty McMillan applied for planning permission for the 5m extension at the back of her detached home in St Mark’s Road, Henley, which will house a new kitchen and family room on the ground floor and two new bedrooms on the first floor.

The extension will be 8.5m, about the same height as the existing house, and there will be a new dormer window in the loft.

South Oxfordshire District Council planning committee’s gave permission on the recommendation of its officers.

Geoff Probert, who lives next door, objected on the grounds that the extension would cast a shadow over his garden and overlook it.
