Listed building extension

AN EXTENSION to the first floor of a former village pub dating back to the 17th century has been approved by planners. 
Now a residential house, the Royal Oak, in Llantrisant, near Usk, is Grade II-listed as a substantial later-17 century village house. It later became the village’s main pub ,but has been a private house since 1998. 
The application states the interior of the house has been “much altered”, though four chamfered beams remain in a room where a brick in the fireplace is dated 1641 while what is described as a “massive” main fireplace in another room contains a brick dated 1742. 
However the first floor extension will be built above an existing 20th century extension at the back of the house and will be used as a “hobby room/occasional bedroom”. 
A 20th century porch at the side of the house will also be replaced with one of a similar design and planners have said both are “an appropriate size, scale form and massing and would not detract from the main characteristics” of the house. 
Planners approved a different first floor extension in 2020. 
The application said “very little of the fabric of the house, particularly pre 19th century, will be affected by the proposals”.
