152874 – 1 Worsdell Way, Colchester, CO4 5WQ – Ground floor rear extension – Comment
MCC would expect to see a useable maintenance gap to the side of the proposed extension. This appears to be over-development for the size of the garden and we would consider the extension to be overbearing on one of the neighbouring properties (no.15, Peto Avenue).
