Our neighbour has submitted a planning application to build a new garage adjacent to our own. They are building within their boundary but there will be insufficient space between the 2 walls for us to maintain our flat roof garage and facias. Do we have a valid reason to object?
Here is the link for the plans
Hi Nicola. We can wait for a couple of more days. Our comments have to be back with the planning office by either 23 or 28 Oct. They have folded the letter right over the date so I can't tell if is a 3 or an 8. I will check with their office on Monday, so please keep trying for the moment. Thanks!
It;s really odd that you can't find anyone to help but thank you for trying. How do I get a refund?
Thank you for your advice. I had a feeling that we had no legal grounds to object but the wording you have used will help me in my own comments. The solar panels are already installed so the application is retroactive and as we cannot see them from our house we have no problem with them. However they intend to install grey aluminium windows which are not in keeping with the development we live on where all window frames are white.
With regards ***** ***** garage would it be wise to suggest in my comments that a "joint garage" with a shared party wall and shared roof, in a design acceptable to both, would be an alternative i.e build on to our existing garage and roof across both. I presume this would need an alteration to our deeds to take account for the shared responsibility?
