The site is set within open countryside located within the Niidderdale ANOB, close to the nearby village of Grantley and the city of Ripon.
Notwithstanding previous extensions on the property it was considered that the existing property did not provide adequate space for the applicant’s particular family and social requirements. It is considered that a single storey side and rear extension, respective and in keeping with the setting and architectural style of the existing property would do no harm to the existing property or setting.
Due to an existing mature Beech hedge and proximity of the Lane views out over the private garden space to the rear were encouraged. Due to the fact the orientation of the side extension was North facing a substantial amount of glazing was introduced by way of a part stone and part oak framed structure which complemented the existing traditional buildings.
