Kingsland CAAC July 2022

Planning Applications for Kingsland CAAC meeting for July 2022

 

2022/1119 283a Kingsland Road, E2 8AS This application relates to the installation of two openable Pergolas on the rooftop terrace of the premises. Full Planning Permission (Danny Huber)

We are unclear whether the perspective views shown in Appendix 2 represent the completed proposal or if the applicant wishes to retain the elaborate decoration on the front façade of the building as shown in Appendix 1. It isn't obvious that there is planning consent for either the extensive decoration or the rather obtrusive air conditioning unit at first floor level. The existing building does not enhance the Conservation Area.

 

2022/1413 20 Middleton Road, E8 4BL Removal of front boundary wall and front bin store and replace with new brick and timber wall and new bin store to front garden. Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

This proposal does not conform to planning legislation which requires that a fence adjacent to the highway should not exceed 1m in height. We also object to the applicant appropriating part of the pavement for the bin store.

 

2022/1155 24 Middleton Road, E8 4BS Demolition of rear structures and side garage as well as the removal of rear balcony and staircase. Construction of a side extension together with landscaping works to the rear garden, alterations to the front garden and boundary wall and alterations to the rear elevation. Householder Planning (James Clark)

We are concered about the positioning of the window at upper ground floor level on the closet wing. If it were aligned with the window on the floor above the balance of the rear elevation would be improved. There are no details of the proposed railings other than the statement that they will match the historic railings of the neighbours. The applicant should look at numbers 28 and 30 which have original railings to the steps and number 34 which has the original railings and pier layout. We object to the proposed railings on the former garage.

 

2022/1258 Former, 5 - 6 Lee Street, E8 4DY Erection of rear extensions to second and third floors; erection of a fourth floor roof extension to create an additional flat Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

We object to the proposed increase in height of this building which would have a detrimental effect on the neighbouring Victorian houses.

 

2021/3679 75 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BW Installation of secured bike shed to front garden Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

We have some sympathy with the applicants and their requirement for bike storage. However the proposed bike shed will have a detrimental effect on this Grade II listed building. It would also set a precedent for the installation of similar storage units elsewhere in the Grade II listed terrace and seriously damage its setting.

 

2022/1384 75 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BW Installation of secured bike shed to front garden Listed Building Consent (Micheal Garvey)

We have some sympathy with the applicants and their requirement for bike storage. However the proposed bike shed will have a detrimental effect on this Grade II listed building. It would also set a precedent for the installation of similar storage units elsewhere in the Grade II listed terrace and seriously damage its setting.

 

2022/1503 43 Northchurch Road, N1 4EE Demolition of existing conservatory and erection of new single storey rear extension, demolition of existing outhouse shed and erection of new single storey home office in garden, alteration to rear window apertures, renovation/ refurbishment of existing windows and french doors, alteration of existing rear outrigger wall to allow for new parapet to neighbouring level, addition of air-conditioning unit to rear outrigger roof, addition of satellite dish to rear outrigger roof and refurbishment to lower ground floor front door (relates to Listed Building Consent 2022/1522). Householder Planning (Erin Glancy)

For a listed building application this fails to supply important information. There are no detailed drawings of existing or proposed windows and these should be provided before consent is granted. The brick lintels on the windows of the outrigger should not project beyond the window jambs. There are no specifications or details of the A/C unit which is shown projecting above the proposed parapet, neither the dimensions nor the dB rating are given. The Heritage statement lists a new bin store at the front but this structure is not shown on the drawings. We are also concerned that some of the internal alterations will result in loss of the original fabric of the building.

 

2022/1522 43 Northchurch Road, N1 4EE Demolition of existing conservatory and erection of new single storey rear extension, demolition of existing outhouse shed and erection of new single storey home office in garden, alteration to rear window apertures, renovation/ refurbishment of existing windows and french doors, alteration of existing rear outrigger wall to allow for new parapet to neighbouring level, addition of air-conditioning unit to rear outrigger roof, addition of satellite dish to rear outrigger roof and refurbishment to lower ground floor front door (relates to planning permission 2022/1503). Listed Building Consent (Erin Glancy)

2022/1170 41 Englefield Road, N1 4HJ Erection of rear extension at upper ground floor level and alterations to rear upper ground floor level fenestration Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

We object to this application which lacks necessary detailed drawings. There is no drawing of the front elevation and we are confused by the curved roofline on the proposed rear elevation.

 

2022/1424 7 Stamford Road, N1 4JP Erection of single storey rear extension, external wall insulation with render to front and rear facades, windows and door replacement, re-pointing of chimney, re-surfacing of street facing access steps to first floor, re-render of garden wall, cycle storage, air source heat pumps to rear garden and removal of satellite dish. Full Planning Permission (Jonathan Bainbridge)

The proposal to insulate and render the front facade is a novel approach facilitated by the one brick recess of the house from the adjoining properties. Whether reducing this set back to half a brick would have a detrimental effect on the front elevation of the terrace is debateable. Certainly great care would be necessary in the repositioning of the windows so that the reveals match those of the neighbours. However there is no set back at the rear and this property has an unusual historic rear party wall position. The proposed insulation and render will appear off balance and together with the rear extension that extends full width will have a dominating effect on the setting of the neighbouring houses. This will be compounded by the proposed black glazed bricks. We therefore object to this application. The applicant has not provided any details of the proposed air source heat pumps and we are concerned that the noise generated will adversely affect the neighbours.

 

2022/1207 5 De Beauvoir Square, N1 4LG Demolition of existing rear extension and roof terrace and construction of a single-storey side and rear extension at semi-basement level . Internal alterations at semi-basement level. Householder Planning (Micheal Garvey)

We think that this application has not fully addressed the issues raised in response to the previous refused application. The proposed extension maybe smaller in scale than the approved extension at Number 4 but, because of its height, it appears more dominant and obtrusive. If the floor plate was on a lower level it would ease the relationship between the existing building and the proposed extension and facilitate the detailing on the window surround immediately above.

 

2022/1373 5 De Beauvoir Square, N1 4LG Demolition of existing rear extension and roof terrace and construction of a single-storey side and rear extension at semi-basement level . Internal alterations at semi-basement level. Listed Building Consent (Micheal Garvey)

The proposed extension maybe smaller in scale than the approved extension at Number 4 but, because of its height, it appears more dominant and obtrusive. If the floor plate was on a lower level it would ease the relationship between the existing building and the proposed extension and facilitate the detailing on the window surround immediately above.

 

2022/1472 Flat 1, Dorset Court Hertford Road, N1 4SD Replacement of existing windows and doors with larger units on the front and rear elevation. Full Planning Permission (Catherine Nichol)

The description of this application does not mention the proposed alterations to the existing layout. We are not sure whether the construction of Dorset Court will allow for the relocation of internal walls on the ground floor without compromising the building above. The proposed new windows should follow the existing proportions and aim to retain the visual balance of the block's facade.

 

2022/1372 Unit 7, Canalside Studios, 2 - 4 Orsman Road, N1 5FB Partial change of Use from Sui generis to Use Class E (a) retail shop Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

No objection

 

2022/1355 16 Northchurch Terrace, N1 4EG Replacement of front door and eleven windows Householder Planning (Monika Vistartaite)

No objection

 

2022/1590 128 Culford Road, N1 4HU Installation of replacement front and rear windows. Householder Planning (James Clark)

No objection

 

2022/1174 136 Tottenham Road, N1 4DY Demolition of the storage shed, removal of existing tree and replacement with a single storey ground floor rear extension. Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

The Design and Access statement fails to recognise that this is a locally listed building. It has been quite substantially extended during the last sixteen years and we note that there does not appear to be planning consent for the gym/shed element. Consequently over 50% of the garden has been lost including the removal of a yew tree in 2008. We regret that the applicant proposes to remove the tree which is named after director Gleditsch of the Berlin Botanical Garden. We are also concerned that the several other mature trees, which are supposedly to be retained, are not shown in any of the drawings.

 

2022/1498 Flat 1, Dorset Court Hertford Road, N1 4SD rear extension Full Planning Permission (Monika Vistartaite)

We object to the design, the proposed elevation sits at odds with the host building. The new window and door openings should be of the same proportions and in line with those above which would harmonise the rear facade. The proposed rooflights seem disproportionate and may have a light polluting effect on the property above.

 

2022/1502 29 Albion Square, E8 4ES Rear extension at lower ground floor. Partial demolition to the rear closet wing. Modification to rear closet wing at upper ground floor. General renovation at lower ground floor. New landscape design to the rear garden. Part of the garden wall in disrepair between nos 29 and 30 to be re-built using the same bricks. The floor level of upper ground floor closet wing to be raised by 160mm in the hallway. Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

We have no objection to this application although we would have preferred the retention of the rear steps and door as they give historical context to this listed building. This feature has been lost from the adjacent building. There is a lack of material details, for example the metal cladding.

 

2022/1637 29 Albion Square, E8 4ES Listed Building Consent for a rear extension at lower ground floor; partial demolition to the rear closet wing; modification to rear closet wing at upper ground floor; general renovation at lower ground floor; new landscape design to the rear garden; part of the garden wall in disrepair between nos 29 and 30 to be re-built using the same bricks; together with the floor level of upper ground floor closet wing to be raised by 160mm in the hallway (relates to planning permission 2022/1502). Listed Building Consent (Raymond Okot)

We have no objection to this application although we would have preferred the retention of the rear steps and door as they give historical context to this listed building. This feature has been lost from the adjacent building. There is a lack of material details, for example the metal cladding.

 

2022/1623 67 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BW Removal of existing rear extension and erection of a new rear extension including a lightwell. Listed Building Consent (Thomas Russell)

There is no drawing of the proposals attached to this application on the planning portal. Our objection to 2022/1631 therefore stands for this application as well.

 

2022/1631 67 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BW Removal of existing rear extension and erection of a new rear extension including a lightwell. Householder Planning (Thomas Russell)

We strongly object to this application. The design of the proposed lightwell is odd with a poor view from the existing rear living room window across to the bathroom. The height of the proposed rear extension cuts across the rear ground floor window thus having a detrimental effect on the rear facade. UPVC is not an appropriate material for windows in the Conservation Area and should definitely not be proposed on a listed building. There is no detail on rainfall management and the skylights, in their forward position, may cause light pollution to the adjacent buildings.

 

2022/1453 Basement And Ground Floor Flat, 68 Mortimer Road, N1 5AP Non material amendment to planning permission ref 2022/0248 dated 13/04/2022 comprising amendments to the size of glazing on the rear and side elevations. Non-Material Amendment (Danny Huber)

Drawing GA-04-R2 is not on the planning portal and so changes to the rear elevation cannot be viewed.

 

2022/1421 36 De Beauvoir Crescent, N1 5SB Variation of condition 1 (approved plans) of planning permission 2020/3980 dated 20/04/2021. Effect of variation would be to r educe the depth of proposed outbuilding; sliding doors proposed to rear of main house and outbuilding; side entrance door removed from De Beauvoir Crescent elevation; first floor rear window proposed to be replaced to match existing window on upper level; mansard clad in tiles to the rear; windows proposed on rear roof slope; position of rooflight amended and other minor alterations. Removal/Variation of Condition(s) (James Clark)

No objection
