nb. The owner informs us that they have had discussions with the council in the past with a view to extending to the rear. The council at the time indicated that this could be a possibility (but not to the side) if done in keeping with the property, subject to consultations. We would suggest if this is likely to be of interest that enquiries should be made to the planning borough department of Ashford Borough Council.
