An extension to a property on the outskirts of Largs has been given the green light after an objection was waved away.

A planning application was lodged with the council for the single storey structure on Constablewood House on Brisbane Glen Road.

The application also included the removal of the existing conservatory at the property, with the new extension to be turned into a morning/family room.

However, an objection was lodged on North Ayrshire Council’s planning portal by the occupier of the nearby Constablewood Cottage, claiming the proposed development would block their view.

It said: “I object to this application on the grounds that it is detrimental to my current (limited) amenity.

“The proposed extension will further block both sunlight and outlook. In conjunction with the large conifer tree, this extension will obliterate the current (limited) view.

“There is sufficient area other than this position to extend the dwelling that is already part of the existing building footprint without adding to it.

“Namely, outbuildings with identical construction adjoining the main house that would easily facilitate the applicant’s needs.

“As such, the proposed extension would not only seriously affect our general outlook, natural light and overall personal physical and mental wellbeing, but de value in financial terms also.”

However, planners have given the proposals the green light, saying that the conservatory is lower than the existing roof, and would be “almost entirely screened” from the neighbouring property.

The decision document stated: “The proposal is not considered to significantly impact on the neighbouring property and property values are not a material planning consideration.

“The extension would be to the rear and not readily visible from public viewpoints. and represents a proportionate addition to the host property.

“The proposed roof would be lower than the existing roof and the extension would be clearly secondary in scale to the house.

“It would be finished to match the host property and the extension is therefore considered appropriate in terms of design, appearance and scale.
