Clapton CAAC strongly objects to this application This end-of-terrace house is largely unaltered since its construction. It retains its original roof shape and modest dormer window. The proposal will eliminate the original rear elevation. The Design and Access Statement claims that ‘careful consideration has been given to the Residential Extensions SPD’ but in every respect the accompanying plans blatantly contradict this statement. The overall effect of the proposed roof extension is one of a dominant box. [Claim 1] ‘The rear dormer will sit comfortably within the rear roof plane and appear subordinate’. [CAAC response 1] The proposed rear dormer is not set below the ridge line or set back from the eaves (SDP 3.78). It is more than ‘half the height of the roof measured on elevation’ (SDP 3.78). To talk of sitting ‘comfortably within the rear roof plane’ is a nonsense since the box extension completely eliminates the roof plane. By extending the ridge to meet the block of flats to the north, an even more dominant construction results. [Claim 2] ‘Similar rear dormer extensions have been approved.’ [CAAC response 2] No evidence is given of previous permissions. It is true that some neighbouring houses have ‘cliff face extensions’ but these pre-existed the establishment of the Conservation Area and the adoption by Council of the Supplementary Planning Document. Some may, indeed, have been built without permission in earlier laxer days. [Claim 3] ‘The extension will not be visible from the local street scene.’ [CAAC response 3] 165 Osbaldeston is the end house in the terrace and is clearly visible from Oldhill Street which is within the Conservation Area. It also affects the setting of Clapton Common Conservation Area. [Claim 4] The CIL form question 6 states that the added floorspace will amount to 1 square metre. [CAAC Response 4] Plans for a five metre full-width extension on two floors will result in considerably more than 1 square metre additional space. Additionally a five-metre extension is in breach of guidance which limits extensions in Conservation Areas to a maximum of 3 metres. Finally we note that no materials are specified. Any permission should require timber sash fenestration.


2021/3419 54 Norcott Road, N16 7EL Erection of single-storey rear extension; erection of rear dormer; excavation of existing basement; installation of rooflights to front and rear roof slope to facilitate the amalgamation of two units to create a single dwelling house. Householder Planning (Alix Hauser)

No objection
