Go-ahead given for conservatory
PERMISSION has been granted for a conservatory in Smarden despite concerns by residents. The cottage, in Romden Road, currently has a lean-to conservatory which the owners want to demolish and replace with a larger one, extended by 3.3m. The ward councillor and parish council expressed concern at the size of the extension. However, the borough council’s planning committee last Wednesday resolved that the conservatory would not be overbearing or have an adverse impact on neighbours.
