Due to the proximity to the neighbouring properties, the finish of render was deemed to be in breach of the Barlaston Neighbourhood Plan Policy D1: Design and Development schedules.

New development in Barlaston must deliver good quality, sustainable design. In order to achieve this all new development must:

  1. Respond to the existing built form in terms of enclosure and definition of streets and spaces, including degree of set-back;
