A COUPLE’S plans to extend their home have been approved despite objections by a neighbour.

A COUPLE’S plans to extend their home have been approved despite objections by a neighbour.

Nick and Nicky Angelou applied to build two-storey extensions at the front and back of their house in St Andrew’s Road as well as extend the garage.

Members of South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee granted the application following a site visit.Neighbour Nicholas Coleman objected to the size of the rear extension, which he said would block sunlight and overlook neighbouring properties.

Mr Angelou told the committee that he had worked with council planning officers to form a suitable plan that would be recommended for approval by Henley Town Council and the district council’s planning officer.

He said: “With regard to the rear extension we have worked with the planner and, at his request, removed the dormer windows and agreed with him to revise our proposals.

“The extension is only 60cm deeper than what is allowed under permitted development and by reducing the depth we can build to exactly the same design fenestration, ridge and eye heights.”

“The planner confirms there would be no loss of light and an open outlook to the south-east will continue.”
