Please see my objection to the new plans for 58 Gallys Road… you can make your own comment here… search 22/01867… you can’t object to those things covered by the existing planning applications that have been granted.
Having read the covering letter for the revised plans I note that it states that an outbuilding will be built but then demolished after the work has been completed.
This shows an outbuilding with a very expensive folding door, why would you demolish after going to such expense?
There is also pipe work for water in the outbuilding but the design fails to show this.
The actual house build is ridiculously over built and I am unsure why you would build out so extensively, surely cheaper to buy a house more in keeping with your needs but hey.
Accepting that the first two applications have gone through and this application is essentially a formality, the outbuilding being demolished needs to be a condition of the new application and it needs to be demolished before the owner moves in.
Alternatively, the planning application should be refused for overbuilding, not in keeping with the local area.

Back story – Recently bought via probate, two applications went in 22/00078 in January for a loft conversion, 22/00297 in February for “Part single/part two storey front/side and rear extension following demolition of existing garage”.
No mention of knocking the house down but as they got started a couple of months back there seemed to be much of the building being removed and then a few weeks ago, they essentially took off the roof and most of the remaining building, leaving very little of the house… and in the plans it only talked of knocking down the garage!
Residents were worried about neighbours. I checked, they have a party wall agreement in place.
They also were laying foundations for an outbuilding with utility supplies which had not been mentioned in previous applications. They removed all hedges and trees from the rear garden without thought for the neighbours in the process.
This created a lot of concern for the neighbours and I asked officers to inspect the site. Other neighbours complained and the up shot is work was stopped and they were asked to put in a new application.
With planning law, once granted then it’s difficult to revoke and so the only element of this massive overbuild that can be objected to is the outbuilding.
