Kingsland CAAC April 2022

Planning Applications for Kingsland CAAC meeting for April 2022

 

2022/0398 27 Albion Square, E8 4ES Erection of a single storey rear outbuilding for use incidental to the host property Householder Planning (Danny Huber)

No objection

 

2022/0463 43 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BW Retrospective planning removal of the security bars from the existing door at ground floor; retention of enlarged opening (previously a window); painting ground floor front elevation (white render) and 2 ground floor doors grey/anthracite; new 1 metre high timber partitioning fence on the side (front) boundary; retention of front hardstanding (paving slabs); new front boundary wall (0.9 metres high) and a laurel hedge behind the wall Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

We have no objection to the removal of the security bars, the retention of the enlarged window opening, painting of the front façade in white render and the doors in anthracite, and the 1m high wooden boundary fence with no. 65 Balls Pond Road. We note the CUD’s recommendation of a front boundary wall 1 brick thick laid in Flemish bond, although we should prefer a plinth wall with railings which would be more appropriate to the period of this terrace. However we disagree with CUD’s that it would be better if the wall featured piers at either end. In our opinion this will look very odd and affect the balance of the building’s façade and adversely affect the setting of the Conservation Area. We also object to the retention of the paving slabs, it should be possible to create the hard standing with a permeable material to allow surface drainage.

 

2022/0423 140 Southgate Road, N1 3HX Creation of roof terrace at third floor level; external alterations to include insertion of new and replacement openings to front and rear elevations and roofs; conversion of garage to storage; landscaping to include new border treatment to front and rear. Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

We object to this application. The proposed roof light should not dominate the rear elevation; rather than a lantern style it should sit tight above the roof of the extension so as not to be visible from the garden and beyond. The window and door to replace the garage door is totally out of keeping with the period of the house. The applicant should remove the two smaller brick piers, which are not original, in addition to the decorative blocks and lower the brick wall so the fixed railings are the same height as the new gate. Metal back stays should replace the pillars and the railings should be 18mm not 15mm.

 

2021/3624 29 Albion Square, E8 4ES Erection of a lower ground floor rear extension following removal of existing rear extension and external stair, replacement of rear door with windows, landscaping of the garden and rebuilding of the garden wall between nos 29 and 30. Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

We do not object to this application in principle but regret the loss of the rear upper ground exit and steps leading to the garden. Such features of the building’s original design show the social history of how these houses were used and are disappearing from the Conservation Area with the increasing development of new and enlarged rear extensions. The proposed roof light is very large and the associated light pollution may affect the neighbouring property. We trust that the garden wall between numbers 29 and 30 will be repaired with lime mortar.

2021/3412 4 De Beauvoir Square, N1 4LG Erection of single-storey outbuilding in rear garden Listed Building Consent (Gerard Livett)

This full width garden pavilion is not a small structure and therefore may not be acceptable to the neighbours. We are concerned that, with side access from the street, this pavilion could be used as living accommodation either temporary or permanent. If the Planning Officer is minded to grant this application we ask that it should be conditioned against such use now or in the future.

2022/0224 5 De Beauvoir Square, N1 4LG Demolition of existing rear extension and roof terrace and construction of a single-storey side and rear extension at semi-basement level. (In conjuction with Listed Building Consent 2022/0395). Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

We have no objection to the proposed extension but we should prefer the window which will replace the door at raised ground floor level to be of the same width and with a similar surround to the existing window above.

 

2022/0395 5 De Beauvoir Square, N1 4LG Demolition of existing rear extension and roof terrace and construction of a single-storey side and rear extension at semi-basement level; internal alterations at semi-basement level. (In conjunction with full planning permission 2022/0224). Listed Building Consent (Micheal Garvey)

We have no objection to the proposed extension but we should prefer the window which will replace the door at raised ground floor level to be of the same width and with a similar surround to the existing window above.

 

2022/0570 12 - 14 Englefield Road, N1 4LS Demolition of derelict buildings in the rear of the site but with retention of the chimney and alterations to the boundary wall. Full Planning Permission (James Clark)

We are happy that the chimney is to be retained but we think that there is an argument for keeping all or part of the attendant buildings. Otherwise the chimney is left without a context. Surely there could be a use for the refurbished building?

 

2022/0422 505 Kingsland Road, E8 4AU Replacement shopfront Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

The works outlined in this application have already been completed and do not seem to be of particularly high quality design. The brackets supporting the bench seating against the shopfront window are visible from the outside and in some places the fixing screws are missing. This location, in a prominent part of the Kingsland Road, deserves a more elegant shopfront.

 

2022/0460 First Floor Flat, 1a Bentley Road, N1 4BY Erection of a roof extension, formation of a roof terrace to the rear, associated alterations Full Planning Permission (Danny Huber)

We have no objection to the application but wondered whether the window in the mansard roof giving light onto the staircase could be increased in width.
