Now I want to extend the awning into an L shape. I requested permission to do so and was bluntly refused without an reason. What can I do

What to do? Go speak to the person who responded to you. Was everything in writing?

Apart from practical reasons for the refusal which will be clear only to those having had the opportunity to inspect the site, your trustees probably did not receive a detailed plan of what you intend; the local authorities might have placed a ban on such attachments; an increased risk of destruction which will affect conditions of your BC insurance policy.

Thank you for the reply, I have put everything communication in writing, have given them the sketch and have subsequently asked for their refusal in writing .
Thanks for the feedback

Hi Guys - please refer to PMR 68 (1) (iv)- the 'harmonious appearance' rule.
This could very well be the case.
