  1. Hi all, New member here with a bit of an issue. My wife and I have just bought our first home and we plan on converting the garage (not standalone) into a habitable room. Unfortunately the garage has a huge bulkhead inside it which severely limits its usability. Our house is semi-detached and the neighbour’s property mirrors ours pretty much exactly - there is a shared party wall between the two garages. The house is not in a conservation or other protected area. Neither of our garages are part of the original dwelling, they were part of a front extension which was done in the 1980s. The bulkhead is a result of an unnecessarily low flat roof (only about 2.5m from the outside) which means that if we were to build up the floor of the garage to match the floor height of the rest of the first floor, there would only be about 2.1m of clearance under the bulkhead (which covers half of the room). We therefore applied for full planning permission to our local council to raise the roof to 3m but they have said they will be rejecting the application because it will cause a mismatch between our property and our neighbour’s and therefore harm the character of the street. Our neighbour has also objected to our plans about six times! We have however already got a party wall agreement in place. The council's decision is due on Monday and if, as expected, they reject our application, we plan to appeal. I know the appeal process can be very long so my question is two-fold: 1. If the council refuse our application, can we still go ahead with raising the roof height of the garage to 3m under permitted development rules? This would remove our need to appeal to the planning inspectorate. 2. If permitted development rules don't permit raising the roof height, does anyone have advice on appealing a planning decision rejected solely based on "impacting the character of the street"? Thanks, RB
  2. My house design has 2 deep, long balconies off the bedrooms on the upper floor. The decks have been designed with parapets; the build is by MBC Timber Frame and it will be a cold roof construction. The architect is doing all the necessary for building regs sign off and it's nearly there, but they are flapping about ventilation of the decks. Their concern is that the cold roof on the decks must be vented, but they don't want to put any vents through the vertical face of the cladding that will be on the outside of the parapet. As yet, I haven't seen the type of vent that they are trying to avoid, but does anyone have any other solutions for venting the roof other than going through the cladding? I've seen a few ideas where the air flow goes to the edge of the deck then up through the inside of the parapet, but I'm not sure if this would give sufficient air flow and achieve the necessary ventilation level. Any suggestions welcome.
