Kingsland CAAC April 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 3 April 2017

 

2017/0654 51 Mortimer Road N1 5AR Replacement of existing front and rear single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection, if only because the existing windows are all of the same style.

 

2017/0692 480 Kingsland Road E8 4AE Installation of an extract duct and flue to the rear elevation of the building (Muhammad Saleem)

No objection.

 

2017/0659 60 Lawford Road N1 5BL Replacement of existing front, rear and side single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We are concerned that the applicant only "seeks to match" the details of the existing windows. The proposed window section shows a mullion that is much wider than the norm for this period. The window at upper left on the rear elevation (No 11) would be much better if it were replaced with a four pane (or possible two) cf window No. 16

 

2017/0059 2-4 Orsman Road N1 5QJ Installation of four shipping containers in two groups, each two containers high for storage (Use Class B8) purposes (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to this application. The size and positioning of the containers is inappropriate and, painted or otherwise, an eyesore on the banks of the canal.

 

2017/0449 82A Mortimer Road N1 4LH Demolition of existing garage and erection of a single storey plus lower ground floor building to provide 1 x 1 bedroom self-contained dwelling. (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

No objection.

 

2017/0655 78 Lawford Road N1 5BL Replacement of existing single glazed timber windows with timber like for like double glazed windows to match existing (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

While we commend the replacement of the windows, we are forced to object to the blanket 'like for like' by Circle 33 on each of their developments without consideration of the overall aesthetic. In this application the three windows on the rear elevation are very different and should all follow the style of those on the front elevation.

 

2017/0811 67 De Beauvoir Road N1 5AU Erection of a single-storey lower ground floor rear extension. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We have no objection to the proposed extension. However we do have strong concerns about the wood burning stove. This is not mentioned in the Design and Access statement and perhaps the applicant does not realise that permission is required. However the positioning of the flue will cause smoke damage to both the applicant's house and that of the neighbours. It needs to clear the top of the building or, better still, be directed up one of the chimneys.

 

2017/0025 515 Kingsland Road Hackney E8 4AR Change of use of first and second floors from minicab office (sui generis) to residential (use class C3) in order to provide a 1 x 2 bedroom dwelling (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

No objection.

 

2017/0514 86 Mortimer Road N1 4LH Demolition of existing side garage and erection of 2 storey side extension; enlargement of vehicle access to Mortimer Road. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We have concerns about this development. While we have no objection to an extension we feel that the attempt to harmonise with the building at number 84a does not work. The available space does not allow a perfect mirror image. It might be better if the roof of the proposed extension was subservient to the existing house.

 

2017/0481 42 Northchurch Road N1 4EJ Retention of trellis to boundary wall in rear garden. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection.

 

2017/0903 42 Northchurch Road N1 4EJ Alterations to boundary wall (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection.

 

2017/0927 Outside 505A Kingsland Road E8 4AU Installation of two-sided freestanding internally illuminated advertisement sign to replace existing telephone kiosk. (Evie Learman 0208 356 8245)

We object to this application. This is a very busy junction and thoroughfare in Dalston. There is now the opportunity to reduce the current level of street furniture and to make the junction with Stamford Road safer. We question whether this particular method of advertising and telecom service is required and have concerns over the durability of the equipment and potential vandalism.

 

2016/4097 110 Kingsland Road Hackney LONDON E2 8DP Retention of mansard roof to provide 1x1 bed flat and conversion of 1 and 2nd floors to provide 2x1 bed flats and external alterations (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

The skylights, although drawn on the 'as built' roof plan, are not shown on the elevations. They are incongruous with the façade and should be removed. We are concerned that the alterations have resulted in substandard accommodation and would ask the Planning Officer to validate the size of each studio flat.
