Ah OK, I skimmed past that detail. Sarah had understood the height required planning, and whilst the porch proposal is tall, I would have thought 3m would cover it.
Not having a go Ferm but that really does show the ‘confirmation bias’ that has gone on with this issue. You wanted 2 metres to be correct because it suits your needs.

So do we know the width and depth of this porch yet? As so far this seems to be the only reason it needs planning.

Such suspicion. We thought it was 2 meters, and I now recall it was the neighbour not us who stated that detail, HE thought he needed permission.

It is 1.3 metres out from his house. We don't know the width as we've only been given a visual, it's to meet his window.

No harm in being proud of something you've put a lot of thought in to.

Planning has now been submitted, and is up on the portal. The neighbour has stuck to his word, and the plans show it significantly away from the boundary. I won't submit a link, as it shows particulars such as his full name. If you wish to see the plans there is likely enough detail on this thread to figure the key word searches, or you can PM me.

I'll update when we know more.

Jesus.... why wouldn't they at least try to make it look 'nice' buy using a small roof tile for example?

As far as I gather (from what he's told me) a light roof (as in lightweight, not bright) means that planning consider it a certain type of structure (porch I presume) rather than another (extension, I guess)

All second hand info, someone who knows planning better may be able to confirm.

Nope, that's nonsense.

It might help convince Building Regulations that a conservatory is a conservatory, but method of construction is irrelevant to Planning, and has no bearing on the definition of a porch.

We've had pictures of the front of the neighbours house, his rear garden, his sheds and been told what he gets up to in them. I don't see what problem putting up an edited pic of the intended carbuncle porch up which is available on a public website anyway.

In which case my memory may be failing me, or he could simply be talking codste.

Putting his name up in a link is too far AFAIC. Pictures around our houses don't ID him.

As you say, it's in the public domain, so if you find it for yourself then who can complain.

yes It's a matter of public record.

Application here if the link works (sometimes they time out).

Otherwise, it's application ref. 19//00240/FUL at Bolsover District Council, if anyone cares.

He's done well to get it validated, on the basis of those drawings: if I submitted that sort of crap as a professional agent, they'd throw it straight back at me.

Out of curiosity I had a look earlier.

Not the greatest, and personally, I would not be happy to have that next to my front door.
