As the owner of the adjacent property I strongly object to the proposed development primarily on the grounds of loss of light to our kitchen. This is a galley-style kitchen whose light enters from the window which would face the 2-storey side extension of the proposed development. The distance from our kitchen window to the proposed development side wall would be only 1.7 m. When one applies the normal criteria used for assessing the 'right to light', i.e the '45 degree rule or the '50:50 rule' it is clear that what is proposed fails these criteria and would result in a major reduction in the light entering our kitchen. It is unacceptable to have such a dominant 2-storey side development right up to the boundary line and in this respect what is being proposed is out of character both in terms of intensity of development within the restricted space available and in comparison to similar approved extensions in the area.
