Kingsland CAAC September 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 4 September 2017


2017/31982017/3201 25 Albion Square E8 4ES Erection of single-storey lower ground floor rear extension, relocation of the existing outbuilding and erection of a new outbuilding. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)



2017/3383 149 De Beauvoir Road N1 4DL Erection of a single-storey rear extension at first floor level. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We object to this application because, despite the change to London stock bricks, this would still be an obtrusive and incompatible development. The roof is unnecessarily elaborate and creates a heavy finish which is compounded by the very large existing extension beneath.


2017/2962 Hackney Community College Falkirk Street N1 6HQ Erection of single storey infill extension and patio area to form new reception to Hackney Community College 'SPACe' building. (Muhammad Saleem)

No objection


2017/3262 10 Glebe Road E8 4BD Installation of rear balcony to third floor (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection


2017/2805 272 Haggerston Road E8 4EP Replacement of existing single glazed timber framed windows with double glazed uPVC casement windows. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We object to this application because the information provided is not correct. There is an arched window at ground floor adjacent to the front door but the drawing does not show this. There is reference to casement windows but these are not drawn on the elevations. UPVC windows are not acceptable in the Conservation Area and the Housing Association should resubmit a correctly drawn application for timber framed double glazed sash windows.


2017/3312 261 Kingsland Road E2 8AS Prior approval for change of use of the ground floor shop (A1 use class) to a cafe/restaurant (A3 use class) under Schedule 2, Part 3, Class C of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order (England) 2015 (As Amended). Proposed opening hours are 0800 - 0000 Monday to Friday; 1000 - 0000 Saturday and Sunday. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

Despite the poor quality of the plans, we have no objection to this application.


2017/2982 378 Kingsland Road E8 4AA Installation of a rear extract duct and installation of no.1 air condenser unit. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

We have no objection to this application but the Planning Officer should satisfy himself that there will be no detrimental impact on the air quality of the adjacent property.


2017/2342 418 Kingsland Road E8 4AA Change of use of upper floors from two self-contained flats to sui generis use to provide a house of multiple occupation consisting of 7 x rooms; Erection of a single-storey rear extension at second floor level. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to this application. Two perfectly good flats are being lost to provide substandard accomodation. The shared kitchen on the second floor is too small to serve the needs of four residents and room 3 exits directly onto the shared kitchen on the first floor. This is a case of overdevelopment.


2017/3044 446 Kingsland Road E8 4AE Variation of condition 3 (hours of operation) of planning permission 2010/1279 dated 11/06/2010 in order to extend the opening hours of the premises. (Muhammad Saleem)

We have no objection to the revised opening hours. However we have concerns about the proposed use of space outside the building. The application refers to outdoor seating and the use of plastic glasses, however no outside space is shown on the plans. Early one evening this week there were two large tables with benches in front of the building, occupying half of the not particularly wide pavement. It may not be a planning issue but the proposed name will certainly attract attention.


2017/3274 22 Middleton Road E8 4BS Erection of a single-storey outbuilding in the rear garden. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection.


2017/3190 Land Adjacent 80 Mortimer Road N1 5AP Demolition of existing single-storey structure and erection of single-storey plus basement self contained dwelling house. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection. However we notice that the proposed building is to be 'yellow' stock brick and we would ask that the brick should match that of the adjacent house.


2017/2919 29 Northchurch Terrace 4EB Removal of condition 6 (upper ground floor side extension bedroom window to be obscure glazed and fixed shut) attached to planning permission ref 2017/1671 dated 13/06/2017 for demolition of the existing garage, erection of a double-storey side extension at lower and upper ground floor levels, erection of a single-storey rear extension at lower ground floor level, and associated alterations to the front and rear gardens including replacement of brick front wall with railing fence, bin store to the front lightwell, levelling of the front car parking space and creation of a rear terrace. The variation would allow for the window to be openable and clear glazed. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No Objection


2017/2974 122 Southgate Road N1 3HY Erection of two-storey rear extension at first and second floor levels. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection.


2017/2946 17 Stamford Road N1 4JP Conversion of single dwellinghouse into two flats (1 x 2 bed and 1 x 3 bed); demolition of existing rear lower ground floor and erection of single-storey rear extension at lower ground floor level; erection of two-storey side extension at lower ground and ground floor level to replace garage; excavation or front light well and rear garden and other associated altearations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We feel that it is a shame to subdivide this house. However if it is to be two flats we would prefer to have 2 x 2 bed rather than the proposed, very small, third bedroom on the first floor. The extension at the rear sits beneath the party wall but the roof lights stick up above and obscure the lower part of the windows of the main house. We would prefer to see low profile roof lights on a gentle sloping roof. We should like the applicant to take this opportunity not to pave all the front garden. The Article 4 Direction was intended to act as a discouragement to off street parking.


2017/3084 28 Stamford Road N1 4JL Installation of metal railings to front of the property (retrospective) (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We object to this application. The railings as installed are not commensurate with the quality of the building. When an earlier application for this building was submitted in 2005 we understand that the question of ownership of the land now enclosed by the railings was questioned. The Planning Officer may wish to clarify the situation in this regard.


2017/3332 Connect House 26-30 Tottenham Road N1 4BZ Extension of existing metal plant support structure to rear of building; removal of 3 no. external roof mounted condenser units to rear elevation; addition of 5 no. external condensor units to extended gantry and associated works. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

No objection.
