Kingsland CAAC January 2021

Planning Applications for Kingsland CAAC meeting for January 2021


2020/3730 Flat A, 509 Kingsland Road, E8 4AR Erection of mansard roof to provide ancillary bedroom and replacement of first and second floor front windows Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

We object to this application. This stretch of old buildings has suffered a number of alterations but they retain their original proportions and their valley roofs. The proposed mansard would be clearly visible from street level, and the long views towards the junction adversely affected by its flank walls. An extra storey would be detrimental to the scale of the streetscape. In the Conservation Area uPVC is not an appropriate material for the replacement windows, they should be of traditional box sash construction in painted timber.


2020/3688 6 Orchard Mews, N1 5BS Replacement Windows, New Patio Doors and New Rooflights Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

We object to this application. The use of uPVC windows would be inappropriate in the Conservation Area. Wooden double-glazed windows are thermally efficient and would be consistent with those of the neighbouring properties. Adding roof lights into the communal roofline would have a visually detrimental effect on the design of this group of buildings and set a precedent. They would also emit light pollution into the rear of the properties on Ufton Road. We have concerns that if the loft is to be a habitable room there is poor headroom. We do not object to the replacement rear doors at ground floor level.


2020/3980 36 De Beauvoir Crescent, N1 5SB Erection of single storey roof extension; installation of a roof terrace and associated balustrade; and erection of a single storey outbuilding to the rear of the existing building Householder Planning (Muhammad Saleem)

We object to this application. The style of the proposed roof extension and terrace will adversely affect the setting of this remaining Victorian terrace. This corner building is prominent in the long views along Whitmore Road and De Beauvoir Crescent and the materials and proportions of the roof extension would be detrimental to the character and the setting. The use of stainless steel will add an industrial asthetic which is incongruous to the domestic Victorian architecture. The proportions of the panelisation and window placement appear unconsidered and undermine the proportions and vertical heirarchies of the host building and the terrace as a whole. The elevated roof light also seems out of proportion. We have no objection to the courtyard studio although the use of timber windows will add a material contrast to the stainless steel and undermine the simplicity and crispness of the design intent. Details should be provided of the proposed replacement timber framed windows in the existing house.


2020/3518 10 Englefield Road, N1 4LN Enclosed roof terrace, increase height of roof parapet and external works. Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

We have serious concerns about this proposal. The proposed raised height of the existing parapets, particularly on the front elevation, would create an imbalance with neighbouring properties. The applicant is creating an extra floor to this property but has not provided any details about how the water run-off from the flat roof will be dealt with. Would a single hopper to the rear be sufficient? The proposed roof doesn’t appear to have any openable windows/ventilation and the room below is likely to become unbearably hot when the sun shines. We wonder why a storage area needs a fully glazed roof.


2020/3804 Hutley Wharf, 29 Branch Place, N1 5PW Variation of condition 2 (Development not in accordance) of planning permission 2019/3854). Extend west elevation. Alterations to fenestration, to roof layout, balconies, and reconfigure layout of flats This is a new application submitted due to I.T. issues experienced by the Council. Comments submitted on previous application/s cannot be taken into consideration for consultation purposes. Removal/Variation of Condition(s) (Micheal Garvey)

We have no objection to the proposed amendments. However we note that the stairwell window on the South elevation between the 3rd and 4th floors is now larger than the two windows below. There is no obvious reason for this change and it makes the façade look unbalanced.


2020/3873 100 De Beauvoir Road, N1 4EN Non-material amendment to planning permission 2019/0687 dated 16/05/2019. The amendment seeks to blank out windows on the northern elevation. Non-Material Amendment [Application Granted] (Alix Hauser)

Already granted
