No objection


2018/0912 7A Ardleigh Road N1 4HS Replacement of existing UPVC rear windows with aluminium sliding doors (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection


2018/0572 and 2018/0743 127 Balls Pond Road N1 4BG Replacement of single glazed windows with double glazed windows to all windows to the rear and front of the property. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

No objection


2018/0760 Marquis of Lansdowne Public House 32 Cremer Street E2 8HD Non-material amendment to planning permission 2016/1030 dated 08/02/2017 in order to amend the triggers in conditions 3, 6, 7 and 8. (Barry Coughlan 020 8356 7939)

No objection


2018/0859 98 and rear of 100 De Beauvoir Road N1 4EN Erection of single-storey upwards extensions to front and central parts of 98 De Beauvoir Road to provide new second floor for office (Use Class B1) use; Change of use of ground and first floor of central and rear parts of 98 De Beauvoir Road from residential (3 x residential units) to office (Use Class B1); Demolition of part of single-storey element at rear of 98 and 100 de Beauvoir Road to provide courtyard; Provision of covered refuse and recycling stores and landscaping at front of 98 de Beauvoir Road. [Note for consultation; proposal would result in office use for the whole site] (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to the proposed second floor level above the existing central building. A considerable amount of care has been taken with the design and finish of the neighbouring buildings forming the De Beauvoir Block. This addition, with enclosed plant and lift overrun, negatively impacts on the east elevation and forms a cluttered roofscape behind the saw toothed roof of the east building . We have no objection to the change of use or to the demolition of the single storey element at the rear to form a courtyard.


2018/0362 34 Englefield Road N1 4EZ Erection of two-storey three-bedroom dwellinghouse following demolition of structures adjacent to No. 36 Englefield Road. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We strongly object to this application. We are disappointed by the loss of the two storey building which is part of the mixed residential/industrial heritage of the area. The proposed building lacks architectural merit and the attempt to match the dimensions and proportions of the fenestration to that of the adjacent Victorian housing just does not work.


2018/1058 Geffrye Museum Kingsland Road E2 8EA Non-material amendment to planning pemrission 2016/1051 dated 02/12/2016 in order to amend the wording of conditions 3, 4, 12 and 16 alongside the following design amendments: - Change to massing and roof design of studio extension - Change to boundary wall and railing on Geffrye Street (Barry Coughlan 020 8356 7939)

We are concerned about the proposed railings between the entrances to the café and the museum. From the drawings they appear to be of a different style to the existing railings. We should like to see more detail.


2018/0795 329 - 331 Kingsland Road E8 4DL Change of use of betting office (Sui generis) to cafe/deli (A1/A3), change of use of two x 2 bedroom flats (C3) to cookery school (D1), erection of a part single/part three/part four storey extension with basement, to provide a cookery school (Class D1). Proposal includes aterations to shopfront, replacement windows, extract flue and associated plant and landscaping of forecourt. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to this application in principle. However we have concerns regarding the vertical polycarbonate cladding to the link building. We should like to see a more sympathetic material.


2018/0576 400 Kingsland Road E8 4AA Prior approval for part change of use of ground floor retail unit (use class A1) to a self-contained dwelling (use class C3) and associated external alterations to the rear. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

Application refused


2018/0439 and 2018/0469 Kingsland Road (OS Creams Jct. Tottenham Road) E8 4AH Installation of 1No. InLink & removal of 2No. BT payphones (Jeni Cowan 020 8356 1371)

We object to this application. It provides additional street clutter and will restrict sightlines for cyclists and pedestrians.


2018/0721 67 Lawford Road N1 5BJ Erection of replacement single-storey rear extension at reduced lower ground floor level, replacement two-storey side extension at lower and upper ground floor levels, replacement three-storey rear outrigger at lower and upper ground and first floor levels, installation of rooflight, installation of bin store within front setback and associated front and rear elevational alterations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We object to this application. In order to make a very large extension more acceptable the applicant is proposing to sink the building by 1.35m. This amount of excavation would be unacceptable on hydrological grounds alone. The proposed lower ground floor extension is double the footprint of the existing extension at that level and this does not follow the recommendations of the De Beauvoir Design Guide. The proposal will impact severely on the adjacent properties.


2018/0573 29 Middleton Road E8 4BN Proposed enlargement of existing opening on the ground floor of the rear elevation and replacing door and all windows with aluminium frame sliding glass door, replacement of all other windows on front and rear elevations with wooden sash double glazed windows, and replacement of balconies. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We strongly object to this application. The proposed style of fenestration and height of the balcony railings do not match those of the adjacent properties. This will be detrimental to the streetscene facing the Conservation Area.


2018/0520 86 Mortimer Road N1 4LH External alterations to front and rear elevations of side garage including insertion of windows and doors and raising parapet height of rear elevation of garage; erection of timber trellis to increase height of boundary walls. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to this application. This is a prominent corner site and the use of garage doors to enclose a habitable room, namely a study, is inappropriate. The proposed timber trellis is equally inappropriate and unattractive. Application granted before submission of comments.


2018/0732 29 Stamford Road N1 4JP Erection of single storey outbuilding (including log burning flue). (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to this application but once again raise concerns about smoke from the wood burning stove wafting into the surrounding properties.


2018/0898 Railway Arches 330 To 331 Stean Street E8 4ED Change of use from B8 (Storage and Distribution) to B2 (General Industrial) Brewery with ancillary taproom, shop, courtyard and kitchen area. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to this application other than concerns relating to potential noise and disruption during later hours in a residential area. We would expect to see that the rules and regulations for the operational management of the site are strongly adhered to.


2018/0945 124 Tottenham Road N1 4DY Non material amendment to planning permission 2017/0104 dated 03/07/2017 comprising changing the skylight in the rear extension to a smaller one in a slightly different location, the installation of a new skylight in the existing roof, lowering of proposed first floor parapet by 1.07m, raising of ground floor parapet by 220mm, and alteration of facade treatment to rear and side elevation. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

Application Granted


2017/5019 280 Kingsland Road E8 4DG Erection of single-storey front extension at lower ground floor level; erection of two-storey rear extension at lower ground and ground floor level; erection of single-storey roof extension to provide new third floor; provision of new balconies on first and second floor rear elevation; new windows in rear elevation. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

Application Refused
