Clapton CAAC August 2021

Planning Applications for Clapton CAAC meeting for August 2021


2021/0742 23 Lower Clapton Road, E5 0NS Erection of ground floor rear extension and relocation of plant equipment on the rear elevation. Full Planning Permission [Application Refuse] (Kim Aukett)

Clapton CAAC has no objection but points out that there may be difficulties in access for some because of the internal steps


2021/1815 9 Powell Road, E5 8DJ Replacement of the existing single glazed timber sash and casement windows to the first and second floor with PVCu double glazed windows. Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

Clapton CAAC objects to this latest application from Newlon Housing Association. Previous applications are: 2021/1414, 2021/1521 and 2021/1675. We repeat our earlier comments that this is one in a programme Newlon Housing Trust is undertaking. The Trust continues to submit a standard scheme which ignores Hackney’s policy against uPVC windows and doors. In this particular case the windows of neighbouring houses are wooden sash strengthening the need for refusal on the grounds of creating a precedent. This application should be refused.


2021/1833 1a Clarence Place, E5 8HN Change of use from place of worship (Use Class F1(f)) to three self-contained residential dwellings (Use Class C3) facilitated by erection of a single storey roof extension to create an additional floor, side extension for access and alterations to fenestration Full Planning Permission (Louise Prew)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application. Although the DAS (p.8) states that the ‘traces of historic elements on the existing street scene define a small media base of quality materials’ the proposal largely ignores the characteristic materials of the street and of Clapton Square. The obvious source building for comparison is the largely unaltered 1b Clarence Place its twin in height and materials (though 1a has been rendered). The pallet proposed for 1a in its use of render, zinc and an unspecified metal – does not respect the ‘historic elements’. The raising of the first floor and the addition of an oversized mansard – complete with large sheets of glass – make the building out of scale and sympathy with its neighbour at 1b and diminish the approach to the taller houses on the north side of Clapton Square.


2021/2103 12 Narford Road, E5 8RD Erection of an outbuilding Householder Planning (Louise Prew)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application


2021/2327 58 Narford Road, E5 8RD Erection of mansard design roof extension, excavation to front yard to form front lightwell with basement window; change of use from HMO (C4 Use Class) to large HMO (Sui Generis) Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application but notes that the living space in each of the rooms is reduced, when compared with the current arrangement, by the addition of a shower and WC. We wondered whether a ‘large HMO sui generis’ was a euphemism for ‘making an even bigger HMO’. There should be a condition that the living room should not be used as a lettable room.


2021/2154 60 Durlston Road, E5 8RR The amalgamation of two flats to a single dwellinghouse and the erection of a ground floor extension Full Planning Permission (Kim Aukett)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application. The extension is large and consumes too much garden – reducing it to below 50% of the original messuage.


2021/1716 64 Durlston Road, E5 8RR Construction of a front lightwell and extension of the basement to the rear, including construction of two lightwells; construction of a single storey side extension at ground floor level Householder Planning (Lasma Putrina)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application. It is a very large development with the basement taking up the entire site with only two small lightwells and a complete roofing-over of the side return. The current garden of 40.6 m2. is reduced to 29 m2. – well below the 50% of the original messuage. Although the word ‘garden’ is used on the plans, there could never be planting since there could be no depth of soil. The depth of the front light-well from pavement to front wall of the house is unspecified.


2021/1863 67 Reighton Road, E5 8SQ Erection of rear dormer window and installation of rooflights to front roof slope. Householder Planning (Alix Hauser)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application: the loft extension (wrongly described as a ‘dormer’) is not below the ridge line and abuts the party wall. Three windows in the front roof slope are excessive while the windows on the rear extension do not follow the pattern of the lower windows.


2021/2251 . Lea Bridge Road, Lower Clapton, Greater E5 9QH Prior approval for siting and appearance: Installation of antennas mounted on a street pole and base cabinet, 3 x ancillary equipment cabinets, ancillary equipment Prior Telecommunications Notice (Danny Huber)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application. A 20 metre mast on a prominent corner disfigures the open space of Millfields and is out of scale with the two-storey houses in the terrace immediately to the west. Trees will not disguise far less hide the mast. Additionally, the associated cabinets will appear as clutter further diminishing the amenity of the open space. We commented on an earlier application for 5G-related installations (2021/1150) that apparatus should be discreetly out of sight. The company should explore their options rather than taking the most convenient site (from their point of view) but the most intrusive – from the public’s.


2021/1415 34 Filey Avenue, N16 6JJ Demolition of existing three garages and erection of a three-storey four-bedroom house Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application but queries the zig-zag window structure on the west elevation which is at odds with the prevailing pattern of surrounding houses.


2021/2114 21 Filey Avenue, N16 6JL Erection of first floor rear extension; two rear roof dormers; and insertion of one rooflight to the rear roof slope and two rooflights to front roof slope Householder Planning (Erin Glancy)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application but would like a requirement to be made that the windows be wooden sash.


2021/2268 12 Stamford Hill, N16 6XZ 2 Stamford Hill: Erection of infill extensions at first and second floor levels; erection of upward extension at third floor level [Retrospective]; alteration of two windows to create two doors to Cazenove Road elevation; Change of use of first floor to provide offices and change of use of the extended upper floors to provide 4 self-contained residential units. 12 Stamford Hill: Change of use of upper floors from three studio flats to provide 6 offices. Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

Clapton CAAC has no comment on this application.


2021/2227 38 Kyverdale Road, N16 7AH Conversion of the property from one self-contained unit to three self-contained units including raised parapet of rear outrigger and alterations to fenestration and boundary treatment Full Planning Permission (Louise Prew)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2021/2236 143 Evering Road, N16 7BL Erection of lower and upper ground floor rear extensions, roof extension with rear dormer, rooflights in the front and side roofslopes, and a roof terrace, excavation at the front of the property to increase the size of the lightwell and a door provided, sheffield cycle stands in the front garden, excavation at the rear of the property. Internal reconfiguration to enable the conversion from 6 residential units into 5 residential units. Full Planning Permission (Kim Aukett)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application on two grounds. The proposed tiered rear extensions would fill up most of the garden that would remain after the permitted free-standing house at the end of the garden will have been built. We also object to what is effectively a roof terrace in the rear roof slope with access from an over-sized single-sheet glazed doorway.


2021/2066 78 Maury Road, N16 7BT The proposal is to convert the existing property into two family sized flats. The ground floor and basement would be a 1 X 3 bedroom flat with garden. The Mezzanine and first floor would also be a 1 x 3 bedroom flat. The proposal would also include a rear / infill extension to the basement / lower ground floor. Full Planning Permission (Erin Glancy)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2021/1912 47 Fountayne Road, N16 7ED Variation of condition 2 (approved plans) of planning permission 2020/0771 for Demolition of existing single and 3-storey extensions to the rear of the property. Exavation at basement level to create new basement level with front and rear lightwells Erection of part single/part three storey extension to the rear of the property. Conversion of loft space to create new habitable space with the addition of rear and side dormer roof extensions with rooflights to the front rooflsope. Other associated external alterations to include replacement windows/doors". Effect of variation is excavation under the front forecourt to provide WC and plant area. Removal/Variation of Condition(s) (Louise Prew)

Clapton CAAC has no comment on this application.


2021/2444 31 Jenner Road, N16 7SB Erection of a part single part three storey rear extension to provide two additional bedsits and a communal bathroom and lounge Full Planning Permission (Erin Glancy)

Clapton CAAC has no comment on this application
