2017/4543 35 Cremer Street E2 8HD Erection of 5 storey (plus basement) building with commercial at basement and ground and four residential units (4 x 2 bed flats), together with cycle parking and refuse/recycling facilities following demolition of existing vehicle repair shop. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No objection


2017/4370 148A Culford Road N1 4HU Erection of single storey ground floor rear extension (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We have no objection to the proposed single storey rear extension. The plans are rather confusing and we wondered why there was a window shown for the neighbouring house on the proposed rear elevation which was not showing on the existing elevation. It would have been helpful to have seen some photographs of the property.


2017/4221 31 Englefield Road N1 4EU Erection of a single-storey outbuilding in the rear garden. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We have no objection to the application for a home office. However we do have concerns about the use of this space as a guest room.


2017/4107 99-101 Kingsland Road E2 8AG Erection of four storey extension and enlargement of existing basement to provide flexible A1/B1 retail (use class A1) office (use class B1) at basement and ground floor, and 8 self-contained dwellings (use class C3) on the upper floors (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection


2017/4112 99-101 Kingsland Road E2 8AG Variation of condition 2 (development in accordance with approved plans) of planning permission ref: 2016/3873, for Erection of three storey rear extension and enlargement of existing basement to provide office (use Class B1) and retail (use Class A1) premises at basement and ground floor, and 5 self-contained dwellings (use Class C3) on the upper floors comprising 1 x 1-bed, 2 x 2-bed and 2 x 3-bed units. In relation to allow flexible use of basement and ground floors A1/B1; relocate bike store and bin store from ground floor to basement; change layout at basement, ground, first and second floors; alterations to roof layout of lift overrun with Ac units; alterations to elevations (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection


2017/4598 21 Northchurch Terrace N1 4EB Erection of single-storey rear extension; relocation of front window and lowering of front loightwell in lower ground floor side extension; insertion of door in lower ground floor front lighwell; creation of steps to west of main entrance to provide access to front lightwell; internal alterations including lowering of floor level of single-storey side extension and removal of part of dividing wall between front and rear rooms of lower ground floor of main dwellinghouse (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No objection


2017/4318 76 Southgate Road N1 3JD Replacement of existing ground floor rear extension and erection of a two storey side extension on the lower and upper floor ground levels (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We have no objection to the side and rear extensions. However we do object to the extensive hard landscaping in the rear garden. The garden was reduced by half in 2015 when the previous owners gained consent to build a new dwelling and will be further reduced by the enlarged extension at the rear. The proposal to pave over more than half of the remainder is not acceptable.


2017/4236 103 Tottenham Road N1 4EA Erection of first floor rear extension. (Josh Lawlor 020 8356 1668)

We might have had no objection to this application if we hadn't known about 2017/4296. Both applications are shown with the proposed compared to the existing but there has been no effort to show the result of the combined proposals. We think that the applicant should submit drawings to show what the ground floor side extension and the first floor rear extension would look like together.


2017/4296 103 Tottenham Road N1 4EA Prior Approval for a Larger Homes Extension for the erection of single storey ground floor rear extension measuring up to 5.4m deep, 2.5m to eaves level and 3.1m maximum height. (Josh Lawlor 020 8356 1668)

We have no objection in principle to the layout but we would prefer to see a similar elevation treatment to the existing. However please see our comments on application 2017/4236. Note this application was refused on the day of our meeting so our comments were not submitted to the Planning Office.


2017/4073 122 Tottenham Road N1 4DY Prior approval for change of use of ground floor A1 (Retail) to C3 (Residential) and associated replacement of shopfront with new window and door (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

We object to this application and in particular the proposed changes to the front elevation. The Article 4 direction in De Beauvoir is concerned with preserving the features that make the Conservation Area special. The existing front elevation is fine for the shopfront but if this property becomes residential the projecting portion should be removed to align the elevation with the adjacent flat fronted residential buildings. We have concerns that, at 30m2, the proposed studio flat will be substandard accommodation. The applicant hasn't demonstrated that the retail aspect is not viable. The shop has only been closed since August and residents have been inquiring on the Next Door site when it will reopen again.


2017/4298 2 Whiston Road E2 8BW Conversion of vacant office space at ground and first floor at the northwest corner of the building into 2x3-bed flats for social rent. (Liz Sullivan 020 8356 1667)

We have no objection to this application and would like to see the replacement windows match those on the rest of the buildings, but preferably not uPVC.


2017/4393 Clifford Lawton House 3 Whiston Road E2 8BN Replacement of aluminium windows on a like for like basis (Josh Lawlor 020 8356 1668)

No objection
