We object to the current plans for the double height extension at Number 6 Roehampton Drive for the following reasons:
The build will cause significant loss of light/over shadowing to our main habitable living space. (as opposed to eg. a garage)
The build will block light coming through the windows of our rear kitchen, living and dining space, our main lounge and upstairs rear bedroom - all resulting in loss of light/overshadowing.
The overshadowing will also impact the heat (and by default result in lower heat retention) of those rooms impacting the energy efficiency of our home. Improved energy efficiency was a significant factor when building our single story extension.
The build will cause overshadowing of the patio area outside of our main lounge such that it will be in darkness and cold for a significantly longer part of the day than it is at present.
The build will cause over shadowing of the main patio area of our home outside our kitchen for a longer part of the day than it does at present.
The balcony in the current plans would afford a full view of our main rear patio and garden thereby breaching our privacy.
We believe that their objectives for their home could be met by an alternative design or other internal layout compromises.
Ian and Carol Hopwood
