Thanks for your reply. On his drawings, he actually shows the as built house and also the outline of the house th received planning, which was never built.
I am objecting because our house, which is in the countryside and is old stlye, used to be a detached and out on its own with a little stone cottage beside it. It now has a massive modern 400sqm house built just meters away (our house which has been there for 150 years is just 5m from boundary wall and neighbour is 0.7m to the wall at the closest point. This was okay when it was just a little cottage, but given the large increase in height (1.7m compared with what was granted, I'm not sure what original cottage height was), it is completely overbearing. There are other issues like the neighbours windows that look straight into our bathroom and the devaluation to our house.
I'm not sure that my reasons would be strong enought to sway the planners as I am just one person so I am trying to get a good argument together. I am quite sure (having read the planning guidelines) that he has not complied with them (at all) as there are very strict guidelines for the area.
