Kingsland CAAC May 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 22 May 2017

 

2017/0656 7 Buckingham Road N1 4DG Replacement of single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows on all elevations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection. A suggestion re: regularising the fenestration: Window 28 on the rear elevation has only two panes of glass as opposed to the four seen in all the others. This should be changed to match them. The balusters of the proposed balustrade should be closer (see 25-31 Englefield Rd) to match the spacing of the railings.

 

2017/1379 37 Englefield Road N1 4HJ Replacement of existing front wall with brick and iron paling fence and installation of balustrade to front steps. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

Good idea to mirror the railings and gate style at No.35, but this proposal doesn't do that. The brick strip wall should be lower to match the height of that at No.35, and therefore the railings longer. The style of railings should be the same as those at No.35, as proposed. The balusters of the proposed balustrade should be set closer to match the spacing of the garden railings. It may be of interest to look at the balustrades at Nos 25-31 Englefield Rd.

 

2017/1254 70-72 Kingsland Road E2 8DP Installation of new shopfront with new set of glass doors and bi-fold windows and associated elevational changes including the installation of two internally illuminated projecting signs. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection: a distinct improvement and good to see that an opportunity is being taken to upgrade this shop front carefully.

 

2017/1269 70-72 Kingsland Road E2 8DP Installation of 2 no. internally illuminated projecting signs. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection

 

2017/1476 392 Kingsland Road E8 4AA Installation of a new shopfront and fascia signage and extract duct and flue to rear elevation of building (Muhammad Saleem)

We would prefer Option A for the shopfront, which is clean and simple. No objection to the proposed neon sign. We would prefer to see the flat attached pilasters on either side of the shop front incorporated into the design by painting both in the same colour, preferably the same dark grey. This would bring them back into use as architectural and spatial markers. (We understand that this may require discussion with the minimarket next door). No objection to the proposed flue.

 

2017/0504 418 Kingsland Road E8 4AA Change of use of first floor level from office (use Class B1) to 1 x 2 bed residential self-contained flat (use class C3). [Retrospective Application] (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No objection

 

2017/1569 6 Southgate Grove N1 5BT Demolition of existing single-storey rear extension, erection of a single-storey lower ground floor rear extension and removal of render finish to rear elevation including repair and reinstatement of brickwork finish and detailing. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We would prefer to see the side of the extension with the three roof lights lined up with the existing extension of the house to the east, in order to avoid overshadowing i.e it should be slightly less deep. Otherwise no objection.
