Inspector throws out Shipley resident's home extension appeal

First published in News

A bid to gain planning consent for an extension on a semi-detached house in Nab Wood, Shipley has been thrown out as it would cause “significant harm” to the neighbourhood.

The appeal by Sajid Khan against Bradford Council’s refusal to grant planning permission to extend 56 Nab Wood Crescent, Shipley, has been rejected by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.

Planning Inspector Roger Catchpole, described proposals submitted by Mr Khan as “wholly unsympathetic” to the existing property and “highly incongruous” to the area.

And, as some of the construction work has already taken place without planning consent, Mr Catchpole stated he had to deal with the appeal on the basis of a retrospective application.

The proposed extension drew objections from a number of residents concerned at both the scale and appearance of the resulting house.

Bradford Council planners are now considering a fourth, slightly-revised application, by Mr Khan to extend the house after three previous applications were refused.

In addition he is seeking planning permission for a large detached garage to the back of the property which has also been constructed without consent.
