A SINGLE-storey extension has been proposed at a home in Stocksfield.

A planning application was submitted to Northumberland County Council to replace an existing conservatory and extension with a new extension at a property on New Ridley Road by Mr Petty.

A design and access statement submitted as part of the application said: "231 New Ridley Road is situated in Stocksfield directly outside the conservation area of Painshawfield Estate. New Ridley Road comprises of predominantly a mix of terraced and semi-detached, mid-20th Century properties, often with large mature rear gardens.

"There have been extensive rear developments on various properties along the street. 231 New Ridley Road currently has a rear (east) single-storey kitchen extension with an attached conservatory. This application seeks to replace these two extensions with one larger single-storey extension, 5.6m deep.

"The proposal is for a 5.6m deep, single-storey extension to the rear of the property, to open the dwelling up to the east-facing garden. Large Crittall-style French Doors and side panels allow the property to open to a large patio. The proposal will be of a flat roof design with a lantern with a smooth white render to match the existing. The extension will not overlook any adjoining properties and will not be visible from the public highway."

The statement concluded by saying the proposals do not alter the essential character of New Ridley Road, access remains the same and parking will not be affected.
