Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting for January 2019


2018/4386 134 De Beauvoir Road N1 4DJ Alterations to the front garden involving: lanscaping and alterations to the front and side boundaries. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We object to this application. Paving over the front garden is not appropriate in a Conservation Area with an Article Four Direction. It is not in the spirit of De Beauvoir's generally well planted front gardens. An impermeable surface does not allow rainwater to soak away into the ground and will increase the run off to the street. Although several properties in the vicinty have a low front wall with narrow railings of the type proposed, the more usual and traditional style in the Conservation Area is shown in the De Beauvoir Design Guide - railings of at least 18mm in diameter set into low natural or simulated stone coping. We would also point out that the applicant has anticipated planning consent and a substantial part of the work has already been carried out, this is just not acceptable.
