AN application to construct an extension to a house in Fylingthorpe despite objections from parish councillors was given permission by North Yorkshire Moors National Park planning committee members.
Peter Weatherill of Middlewood Close, Fylingthorpe proposed demolishing an existing outbuilding at the house and replacing it with an extension to provide extra living room space, a lounge, playroom, utility room and lavatory.
The house was described as a red brick semi-detached built after World War Two.
Fylingdales parish councillors objected on the grounds they considered the extension too large for the area.
It was supported by a neighbour who said that the applicants had a number of children to accommodate and pointed out that such family situations were normal in the area of Fylingthorpe and Robin Hood’s Bay where rooms were historically added alongside or on top of existing homes.
