Kingsland CAAC June 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 5 June 2017

 

2017/1852 29 Ardleigh Road N1 4HS Erection of a conservatory over existing terrace on the rear irst floor level, replacement of existing third floor rear window with Juliet window/balcony and installation of rear rooflight (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We object to this application. The proposed conservatory is a glazed extension of the living space and would result in a two storey full width extension which contravenes the De Beauvoir Design Guide. The proposed rear fenestration, including the roof light, is out of keeping with the original main house.

 

2017/1566 Land between 8 and 10 Englefield Road N1 4LN Erection of a three-storey building to provide 2 self-contained dwellings (use class C3) comprising 2 x1 bedroom flats (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We have no objection to an infill development on this land. However we feel that the new building should be set back from the buildings on either side and should match the height of number 10. We do have concerns about the open ground floor and lack of obvious structure to support the front elevation. The absence of a street level frontage makes the building look unfinished. Number 8 has three windows on the west elevation and their light and outlook will be compromised.

 

2017/1695 17 Englefield Road N1 4LJ Variation of condition 2 (development in accordance with approved plans) and removal of condition 3 (materials to match) of planning permission ref 2016/1271 dated 03/06/2016 to allow for the change of the external materials. (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

We object to this application. No details are given on the type of timber to be used but we think that this is an inappropriate material in this case. The applicant makes the point that they intend to retain the proposed sedum roof but the plans clearly show astro turf.

 

2017/1902 3 Hackney Road E2 7NX Change of use from mixed use mini-cab office and sale of cold food for consumption off premises (Sui-Generis) to A1 cafe to operate from 06:00 hours to midnight Monday to Sunday inclduing bank holidays. (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We have no objection but presumably the café will generate waste and there appears to be no provision for storage prior to collection. This property is located on a corner which is tight on space and in a sensitive area opposite the listed Shoreditch church,

 

2017/2018 258 Haggerston Road E8 4EP Demolition and replacement of the existing conservatory at the rear ground floor level of the property with a larger conservatory (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection

 

2017/1499 19-23 Kingsland Road E2 8AA Erection of a single storey roof extension; erection of a 6 storey rear extension; erection of a 5 storey external staircase and provision of cycle storage facilities at ground floor level (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

We object to the proposed 6th floor roof extension which will be clearly visible in the long views south along Kingsland Road towards the City. This is a pivotal building with a strong roofscape and the extension diminishes the architectural integrity of the building. We have no objection to a five storey rear extension and the reinstatement of the staircase.

 

2017/1049 98-104 Kingsland Road E2 8DP Erection of third and fourth floor rear extensions, erection of third and fourth floor front extension, erection of a roof extension to create an additional storey, elevational alterations, and alterations to plant and equipment to facilitate change of ground floor (part) to reception for short stay accommodation (serviced apartments) (use class C1) and provision of 8 additional short stay accommodation (serviced apartments) units (use class C1) (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

We strongly object to this application. The increase in height of the front elevation creates a building which would dominate the lower buildings to the north. The modern infill at number 96 was designed with an asymmetrical elevation which allowed the building line to step down and link with the lower buildings to the north. This proposal would be out of context with the surrounding buildings and detrimentally affect the long views within the streetscape. It would also add to the sense of enclosure at this part of Kingsland Rd. Although the buildings opposite on the west side have had floors added, they are set back quite a way from the original front elevations which results in a less oppressive feel to the street scene. The five storey rear elevation directly onto Nazrul Street is also overbearing. The internal layout at first floor has changed little, apart from the added lift shaft and three units made suitable for wheelchair access, however the entrances to these apartments look very narrow for wheelchair use. The triple set of doors and tight corridors would prohibit wheelchair access to the north side of the building.

 

2017/1671 29 Northchurch Terrace N1 4EB 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. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

2017/1680 29 Northchurch Terrace N1 4EB External alterations including the 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. Internal alterations including the removal of concrete floor and rear room wall at lower ground floor level, blocking in partition at lower ground floor level, restoration and reinstatement of original stairwell at lower ground floor level, excavation of the garage in order to create a bathroom, utility room and kitchen at the same level as the existing lower ground floor and creation of new door openings on all levels. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We have no objection to the conversion of the garage and to the extension above. However we do object to the proposed full height window at the rear of the extension. We think that the first floor level window at the rear should match that of the adjacent property with a parapet to the rear facade. However we do object to the depth of the proposed rear extension at ground floor level. The bulk of the proposed extension overwhelms the original house and the neighbouring properties.

 

 

2017/1414 48 Northchurch Road N1 4EJ Variation of condition 2 (Not in accordance with approved plans) of planning permission 2012/1002 to replace a rear door with a window. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

2017/1824 48 Northchurch Road N1 4EJ Replacement of rear glazed doors with sash window (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

No objection

 

2017/1401 57 Northchurch Road N1 4EE Replacement of existing single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows at first floor level to the rear of the building. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection

 

2017/1232 31 Stamford Road N1 4JP Replacement of existing single glazed timber framed windows with double glazed timber framed windows (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection
