(Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

We have no objection to the proposals, but the applicant should be required to provide additional lighting, attached to their premises, for the public passage way alongside.


2017/2741 & 2017/2774 107-109 Stoke Newington Church Street N16 0UD Change of use of first and second floors from ancillary storage space for retail unit (Use Class A1) to 2x 3 bedroom HMOs (Use Class C4) with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities; changes to shopfront and provision of new residential entrance to 109; demolition of two existing outbuildings to rear of No.107 and erection of roof over rear yard to extend retail premises; elevational changes to include new second floor windows and relocation of pipework. (Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

We object to the proposals for the following reasons:

  • The arguments for removing many of the original and antique features is not well made.
  • The property is of high historic and architectural significance and we do not feel this status is compatible with HMO use; in particular the intensity of internal work necessary to make such a use work from amentiy and building regulation points of view.
  • There is insufficeint detail in the drawings to assure the quality of the works.


2017/4278 155 Stoke Newington High Street N16 0NY Variation of condition 2 (plans) of planning permission 2014/3380 for "Erection of a two storey, two bedroom dwellinghouse". The effect of the variation is to change the roof form. (Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

We object to the proposals for the following reasons:

  • We lament the poor quality of the as-built scheme which fails to achieve the ambitions of the well-designed approved scheme.
  • We note the build quality is extremely poor (as illustrated by the applicant) and will likely lead to some significant building defects.
  • We note there are no applications listed to discharge the pre-commencement conditions of the approved scheme, which has no doubt has contributed to the dire situation the applicant finds themselves in.
