Kingsland CAAC August 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 7 August 2017


2017/2405 107B Culford Road N1 4HL Retention of cycle storage to front elevation facing Culford road. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

We object to this application. The style of docking station chosen is bulky, obtrusive, and very unattractive. We would urge the planning dept to ask for a much less obtrusive design.


2017/2799 58 De Beauvoir Road N1 5AT Erection of single storey rear conservatory extension (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection


2017/2865 123 A De Beauvoir Road N1 4DL erection of single storey rear extension (Muhammad Saleem)

No objection to the extension. Given the extent of seating area proposed, we would like to see that the proposed decking is permeable (ie not tongue and groove, but slatted) to allow for drainage.


2017/2817 134 De Beauvoir Road N1 4DJ Erection of single storey rear extension and internal refurbishment works (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection


2017/1980 35-68 Geffrye Court Geffrye Estate N1 6RX Erection of walls and fences in association with the provision of refuse and recycling stores. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection


2017/3024 48 Hertford Road N1 5AE Erection of single storey set back roof extension, providing one residential unit (1 x 3 bedroom). (Lewis McAulay 020 8356 5674)

We strongly object to this overdevelopment of a handsome school building. We feel that the result would not enhance the building in any way. While the building is not in the Conservation Area, it makes a significant contribution to the setting of the CA, and in particular of nearby listed buildings in De Beauvoir Square. We also note the proposed loss of the two wooden ventilation towers, which are an important detail, and which the developers were persuaded to replace.


2017/1531 110 Kingsland Road E2 8DP Erection of a two storey rear extension to provide 1 x 1 bedroom dwelling (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

We object to this application. The proposed rear elevation does not enhance Nazrul Street. We appreciate that the current elevations on Nazrul Street are far from harmonious, but do not see why further applications should make things worse rather than better. We also object to the proposed use of UPVC windows.


2017/2843 Arches 444-450 Kingsland Road E2 8AA Installation of a glazed shopfront, alterations to the existing shopfront, public realm works, cycle parking and associated works. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No obection: we are very impressed by the attention to detail, and the potential improvement to a slightly shabby area of the Kingsland Rd which would result from this application. A welcome addition, and cheering to see an application that really does enhance the area. Our only comment would be that we would like to see some affordable workspace included in the development.


2017/2847 Arches 447-450 Kingsland Road E2 8AA 5 Kingsland Road E2 8AA Change of use from Retail (Use Class A1) to a flexible use as Retail and Restaurant / Cafe (Use Classes A1 and A3). (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No objection.


2017/2141 457-459 Kingsland Road E8 4AU Erection of a single storey out-building in rear garden. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We strongly object to this application. This property has already benefited from planning permission for a full width two storey extension, and with this extra "garden room", approx 50% of the garden will be lost. We would in fact question whether this proposed building, with toilet, shower and wood burning stove, is in fact a garden room as opposed to living space. We note that the extension itself already includes a garden room. We feel that this is excessive development of the site.


2017/2679 501-505 Kingsland Road E8 4AU Variation of conditions 1 (approved drawings) and 6 (BREEAM Standards) attached to planning permission 2015/3580 dated 11/11/2016 for 'Demolition of existing three storey Class B1(a) office building and erection of four storey building to provide 10 residential units (Use Class C3) across ground and three upper floors (1 x 1 bedroom, 7 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 3 bedroom) and 3 x retail units (Use Class A1/A2) at ground floor level fronting Kingsland Road, along with associated works.' Note for consultation: Effect of variations would include increase in height of mansard roof by 700mm; increase in width of dormers by 400mm; decrease in parapet heights by 300mm; alterations to window locations; insertion of 4 no. boiler flues to Kingsland Road Elevation and the removal of the requirement for the commercial units to meet BREEAM 'Excellent' standards. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to this application, which appears to emphasise the size of the heightened mansard roof on the top of the building by dropping the parapet, and creates an ugly step in the parapet between the two buildings. We note that the framework for the mansard is already in place, and we deplore the fact that the applicant appears not to have waited for planning permission for the proposed changes to be granted. We find that the attention to detail in the drawings is very poor, and that the drawings are misleading. These should have been sent back to be corrected.


2017/2460 and 2017/2497 554 Kingsland Road E8 4AH Change of use from A1/D1 to A4; installation of an extraction system; alterations to the shop front. (Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

No objection.


2017/2533 Basement and Ground Floor 584 Kingsland Road E8 4AH Use of ground and lower ground floors as restaurant (Class A3) with external flue to the rear, bi-folding doors to the rear and other associated external alterations (opening hours 09.00 - 23.00 Monday - Friday, 09.00 - 00.00 on Saturday and 09.00 - 23.00 on Sunday and Bank Holidays). (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to the change of use and the proposed opening hours. We are concerned that the low level flue appears to blow exhaust fumes downwards into the courtyard, which it is proposed to use as an eating area.


2017/2902 Unit 702 10 Southgate Road N1 3LY Variation of Condition 2 (approved drawings) of planning permission 2014/3461 dated 16/12/2014 for erection of a 7th floor extension and 8th floor roof extension with roof terrace for the existing 7th floor flat. The effect of the variation would be to provide an entrance canopy (Muhammad Saleem)

No objection


2017/2531 109 A Tottenham Road N1 4EA Variation of condition 2 (development in accordance with approved plans) attached to planning permission 2016/3466 dated 16/12/2016. The effect of the variation would allow: the installation of a bike store to the front garden, alteration to front garden wall and gate, installation of an air source heat pump to the rear garden, installation of solar panels to the roof, erection of a planter and green roof to the first floor rear terrace (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

We object to this application. We feel that the proposed height of the front wall is very unattractive, changing the rhythm of the front views of this row of buildings by bringing the wall up to the height of the gate piers. The piers were related to the stucco frontage of the neighbouring buildings, and it is important to maintain the integrity of this facade. We also object to the proposed slate grey render of the front wall which is inappropriate. We are also concerned about sound pollution from the air source heat pump.
