Derbyshire extension owner speaks out

A resident of Swadlincote in Derbyshire has spoken out against criticism aimed at his home extension.

A builder by trade, the property owner has experienced judgement from his neighbours nearby via social media, who have likened his two-storey extension to many different structures, including a prison guard tower, a bird watching hide, a gun turret and a pigeon coop.

Some residents took further steps against the extension, raising complaints with South Derbyshire District Council, which launched an investigation into the works. However, following inspection, the local authority concluded that the extension was legally allowed, as the same rules established that enable sheds to be erected in gardens applied to the new structure.

Property owners planning house extensions in Chester, Swadlincote and other parts of the country will find professional architects a valuable resource. As well as providing expertly designed plans that satisfy the needs of homeowners seeking to extend, architects can ensure available space is capitalised on and the result is attractive. They can also act as agents, handling planning applications on behalf of those requiring more room and ensure building meet safety regulations.

Now, the property owner has spoken out on the issue, commenting to Staffordshire Live that:

“I think it is unfair for people to comment on it before it is finished. If they have a look at the architectural designs, they’ll see for themselves.”

The builder, originally from Birmingham, started construction on the extension in June this year at the property in Coppice Side.
