We consider the amount of additional information that is proposed to be required for basement extension applications (paras. I, j & k of the proposed Policy CL7) to be unduly onerous for domestic extensions.  A lot of this information is more properly dealt with by other Council departments at later stages in a project, such as Building Control, Environment & Traffic & Highways.  The effect of requiring this information at such an early stage in the project is to increase costs unnecessarily and complicate the planning process.
