17/00659/FUL Raj Bhawan, 58 Harmans Water Road, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 9PT pdf icon PDF 360 KB

Proposed conversion of single dwelling house to three self-contained apartments with raising of garage roof, the erection of a single storey front extension, side porch and addition of balcony in front elevation.

Minutes:

This item was withdrawn from Committee. It had been identified that parts of the roof structure on both sides of the dwelling would overhang neighbouring properties, therefore resulting in encroachment. As notice had not been served by the applicant on the affected properties, the application could not be entertained.
