Council planners give Hampshire property extension green light

A planning application for a house extension in the Hampshire village of Swanmore, near Bishop’s Waltham, has been granted approval from the local council planners.

Property owner David Chesters made an application to enlarge his home, Fir Cottage on Well Lane, and to convert an existing outbuilding, transforming it into an annexe, where he planned for his father to live.

The original plans incited numerous objections from both the parish council and neighbouring households. The property was deemed overbearing and unsympathetic to the surrounding landscape. One objector to the building extension argued that the plans broke from the village’s dedicated design statement, increasing the property’s size by 81 per cent.

Property owners requiring more space from house extensions in Nantwich, Hampshire and other parts of the United Kingdom will find local architects can provide a wide range of useful services. Along with drawing up professional plans that make the most of available space and natural light, they can make introductions to material suppliers in the area.

Architects can also act as agents on behalf of homeowners or developers submitting applications, along with answering any challenges voiced by local planners. Able to adapt plans to meet key requirements quickly, they can facilitate a smoother path through the application process.

Chesters took on feedback from the local parish council and his neighbours, altering his extension designs in response. After receiving a recommendation from planning officers, the local planning committee has now approved the submitted application unanimously.
