A DAMNING report on the consequences of extending a £200,000 house in Woodcote Park, Wisbech, has been produced by a Government inspector.

Peter Golder said that if he allowed the owner of 21 Woodcote Park to build an annexe it would have "a detrimental impact upon the character, appearance and overall quality of the area".

He said the proposal would be harmful to residents of nearby Richmond Court and "not only would the overall scale and massing of the extended dwelling he particularly dominant and unobtrusive" but it would obscure views beyond.

In dismissing an appeal against a Fenland Council decision, he said he had taken into account the applicants' requirement to house a disabled parent.

"I have no evidence to suggest that the extension as proposed is the only means of meeting this requirement," he concluded.
