Homes Granted Permission For Extra Living Space

Jackson’s Hill, S Mary’s

Two St Mary’s homes have been granted planning permission for alterations to increase living space.

The owners of Hivernia, a 1970’s house on Jackson’s Hill, wanted to add a first floor extension by enclosing a balcony area. A number of other changes were also requested including removing a chimney and relocating various window and door openings.

Planning officer Harriet Bowen said the finishes would be of a similar style to the existing property and the extension would be in scale with the property. She also felt the plans would make the front of the house more uniform and recommended approval.

And the owners of Pernagie, a bungalow on Trench Lane, Old Town, will be able to remove and existing conservatory at the rear of the property and replace it with a new kitchen extension.

The extension will stretch across the full width of the bungalow, creating a more open-plan living space and will not be visible public areas.

The planning officer felt it was appropriately designed and also recommended this scheme for approval.
