AN APPEAL has been launched after Wiltshire Council refused extension plans.

Earlier this year, Jeremy DuToit applied to build an extension to his home at 41 Queens Avenue in Corsham, as well as the garden wall

Mr DuToit also applied for change of land to domestic curtilage.

However, Wiltshire Council’s planning officers refused to grant Mr DuToit permission for his plans.

They said: “The change of use of the land and the proposed prominent siting of the boundary wall and extension would result in the loss of the open, landscaped character of the site and would form an incongruous and harmful addition to the street scene.

“This would harm the openness, rhythm and character of the wider street scene, where existing boundary treatments are set back from the pavement edge.”

The officers added that the plans would be at odds with national planning policy, as well as its own and the Corsham neighbourhood plan.

Anyone who wishes to comment on the appeal must contact the planning inspectorate by Wednesday, October 13.
