One of my neighbours has submitted planning permission for a 2 storey extension, which I have no issues with at all. However as part of the planning they want to bring the garage 1m further forward (its attached to the house) and add a larger porch and a pitched roof across the front to cover the garage and the porch.. You may be able to see details here:
Now I dont really have an objection other than the extension to the garage and the and the pitched roof going along the porch and garage. The reason I dont like it is because all the houses in the road and certainly our corner are identical and I think it will look very over powering and not in keeping with the road.
The question is do you contest it, baring in mind they are your neighbours, and you may want planning permission yourself in the very near future (although ours is to the back of the house and nothing to do with the front)?
Its a tricky one as they will know I have done it, for my views to be taken seriously but there is no love lost either better us so I am not all that bothered. Has any one got any experiance with this sort of thing?
