Kingsland CAAC December 2021

Planning Applications for Kingsland CAAC meeting for December 2021


2021/3230 4 Ufton Road, N1 5BX Replacement of all existing single glazed timber window units with new double glazed timber units on the front and rear elevations. Replacement of all the timber entrance doors with new panel styled timber doors. Replacement of rear doors with new timber doors Full Planning Permission (Raymond Okot)

No objection.


2021/3080 First Floor Front Flat, 22a Englefield Road, N1 4ET Installation of new window in side elevation at first floor level. Householder Planning (Alix Hauser)

This is a fine brick wall which will be spoilt by the random addition of a window without any consideration of the impact on that façade. There is no detailed drawing of the proposed window and the dimensions are different in the Design and Access statement and in the drawing of the side elevation. No indication is given as to whether there is to be a brick arch and how the window will sit into the wall. We therefore object to this application.


2021/3207 45 Northchurch Road, N1 4EE Replacement of existing rear infill extension with new infill extension Householder Planning [Application Granted - Extra Conditions] (Raymond Okot)

No objection.


2021/3301 Unit 7a, Canalside Studios, 2 - 4 Orsman Road, N1 5QJ Erection of part three- and part four-storey building to provide 526sqm of office floorspace (as per planning permission 2019/4090), and erection of 2-storey roof extension to existing building to provide 5 residential units with ancillary refuse and cycle storage and landscaping Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

We object to this application. The existing view from the Kingsland Road bridge (Key View 5) shows a harmonious cluster of buildings. The delightful scale of the roofs in Orsman Road (Key View 8) will be destroyed by the addition of two extra storeys. The proposed scheme results in a building that is too big and alien to its surroundings.


2021/3329 418 Kingsland Road, E8 4AA Erection of single-storey rear extension at second floor level; change of use of upper floors from 2 x residential units to House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) with 7 rooms Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

We should prefer the retention of the two flats rather than conversion of the building to an HMO. The photographs show a building that has not been carefully looked after and we have little confidence in the ability of the applicants to satisfactorily manage an HMO. However should this change of use be granted we would like to see one less room and the shared kitchen on the second floor located internally.


2021/2465 58 Southgate Road, N1 3JF Demolition of existing storage buildings in rear yard and erection of a part single, part two storey building for use as a day nursery (Class E). Erection of an associated infill link building between Nos. 62 - 64 and use of 58A Southgate Road as part of day nursery (Class E). Associated landscaping. Full Planning Permission (Alix Hauser)

We are still concerned about the large number of children on a small site and how the sound that they will generate will impact on the immediate area. We need reassurance that the 2.5m high acoustic fence will sufficiently constrain the noise. The contamination report was prepared for an earlier planning application for a different buildings and use of the site. It highlights high levels of lead and several organic compounds but any regeneration process needs to be reconsidered in light of the proposed use as a nursery school. In addition there is potential for further contamination by use of the yard as an architectural workshop in the intervening years. The new location of the bin store will have a negative impact on the façade of 58A and the adjoining building to the north. It needs to be better integrated with the architecture of the Southgate Road elevation.


2021/3292 182 Culford Road, N1 4DS Demolition of single-storey rear conservatory; replacement of a front garage door opening with two windows and brick infill; installation of air source heat pump at rear. Householder Planning (Gerard Livett)

We have no objection to this application but we would like reassurance that the proposed air source heat pump will not adversely impact on the amenity of the neighbours.
