A PROPOSED extension to a rear of a dwelling in Poughill have been given planning approval by Cornwall Council.  

Mr Huries and Ms Mobbs had applied to Cornwall Council for the works to their property on Meadow Drive in Poughill. 

The development was described as: “Proposed extension to rear of dwelling, new porch to front, and demolition of existing garage and construction of a new replacement.” 

While Bude-Stratton Town Council had no objections to the plans, there was one objection from their neighbour, Mr Harold Webster.  

He raised concerns that the extension would lead to a loss of light to the side garden and adjacent three windows of his property’s hall, toilet and bathroom and said that the proposed extension’s height would overshadow that.  

He also said that a building inspector commented that the rear and side garden was vulnerable to damp due to the property being at a low point in the road and called for the extension to be reduced by 1.5 metres, adding that he hoped to speak to his neighbours about this.  

No remediation to these concerns were put in the conditions for approval for this property.
