Planners consider log store extension

PLANS have been submitted for a proposed extension and covered log store at a property in Brompton.

It is currently being considered by planning officers at Scarborough Council and, if planning permission, the work would involve the demolition of part of an existing outbuilding in Hungate.

The plan was submitted at the end of last month and the matter is expected to be decided by the end of September.

According to a design and access statement prepared by Denton and Denton, the Scarborough firm of architects behind the scheme’s design, the extension would be built at a traditional two storey end terrace cottage in the Brompton by Sawdon Conservation Area.

The report said: “The proposal is to construct an infill utility extension, with an attached open fronted log store, to the rear of the property and to partly demolish a garage and reform as a small store and greenhouse.”

The extension would measure 3.5m by 1.8m and the attached log store would run between an existing outbuilding and the proposed extension – the log store would measure 3.6m by 2.1m.

The report added: “The infill utility extension will follow the existing catslide roofline. The logstore pitched roof will run between the existing outbuilding and the proposed infill extension.

“The external materials of construction will be of natural stone and red brick walling to match the existing walling materials.”
