Clapton CAAC July 2017

Planning Applications for Clapton CAAC Thursday 20 July 2017

 

2017/2374 42 Lower Clapton Road E5 0PD Alterations to ground floor windows and replacement of side door, together with removal of paint to expose brick work to north elevation. (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal and commends the apparent thought that has gone into it.

 

2017/2607 148 Lower Clapton Road E5 0QJ Display of an illuminated advertisement panel on telephone kiosk (Robert Brew 020 8356 8059) 

and 2017/2605 Outside 65 Amhurst Road Amhurst Road E8 1LL Display of an illuminated advertisement panel on telephone kiosk (Robert Brew 020 8356 8059)

The kiosk is poorly designed and harms the character of the Conservation Area, but our principal concern in relation to the advertising consent is the brightness of the digital display panel and the potential for light pollution. This should be carefully assessed by the authority.

 

2017/2143 16 Newick Road E5 0RR Erection of single storey rear extension and excavation of front lightwell (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2256 249 Evering Road E5 8AL Erection of single-storey rear extension at ground floor level and associated external alterations to the front and rear elevations (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2312 189 Evering Road E5 8AN Variaiton of Condition 2 (Details) of planning permission ref. 2016/0550, dated 31/03/2017, for the 'conversion of existing dwellinghouse to five flats (4x2 and 1x3 bed), demolition of existing rear extensions, erection of a two storey (including basement level) rear extension with rear terrace area, rear dormer extension, excavation of basement with front and rear light wells and associated landscaping work'. Namely to change the brick panels to perforated steel panels (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The metals screens are probably an improvement on the brick screens previously consented but the colour of them must be agreed or reserved for later agreement.

 

2017/1720 22-24 Powell Road E5 8DJ Demolition of all existing buildings and erection of three buildings with a maximum height of four storeys, above basement comprising a 416.8sqm Place of Worship (use class D1), 90.7sqm of office floorspace (use class B1) and 15 residential dwellings (comprising 1 x studio, 4 x 1 bed, 4 x 2 bed and 6 x 3 bed) and associated cycle parking and landscaping (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

The Clapton CAAC supports the comments of the Hackney Society Planning Group: "This plot-filling scheme is ambitious and potentially contentious. We question the compatibility of the basement church use with the residential uses above it and wonder whether it appropriately serves the needs of its congregation. In particular we note the loss of parking as being potentially problematic, and the levels of noisy activity - particularly around special events that the residents will have to endure. Furthermore the design lacks refinement - in particular the Powell Rd elevation clashes crudely with the adjacent buildings."

 

2017/2225 178 Clarence Road E5 8DY Excavation at lower ground floor level and erection of two storey extension to the rear at lower ground and ground floor level with rear lightwell to provide a 1 bedroom self contained residential flat. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal save to note the flat is particularly pokey and dark.

 

2017/0423 44 Clarence Mews E5 8HL Erection of a single storey second floor extension and use as offices to provide religious community services (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We object to the scale and form of this massive roof extension which seeks to remove the gable front of the original building entirely.

 

2017/2446 and 2017/2462 22 Clapton Square E5 8HP Erection of outdoor building garden in rear garden (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2355 Flat C 27 Alconbury Road E5 8RG Erection of rear dormer extension and new front rooflights (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal except for the juliette balcony (which should be omitted) and the UPVc windows which should be timber or aluminium.

 

2017/2290 15 Durlston Road E5 8RP Erection of single storey rear extension behind the outrigger at ground floor level and elevational changes to include a repositioned side/rear door, to facilitate the conversion of the property into 2 separate residential units. (Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal except for the UPVc door which should be timber or aluminium.

 

2017/2165 4 Geldeston Road E5 8RQ Erection of single storey rear/side extension (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2441 38 Overlea Road E5 9BG Alterations to front garden to provide paving, 2x car parking spaces, alterations to front wall, relocation of bins (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC objects to the addition of car parking which will exacerbate the problems with parking in the area and promote car use. Additionally no details of proposed railings are provided so the matter should be reserved.

 

2017/2004 1 Clapton Terrace E5 9BW Installation of new windows at lower ground floor level and associated internal alterations to sub-divide lower ground utility room to form internal bathroom. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC remains frustrated that this important application includes no documents and the associated Full Planning Application is invalid and similarly without documents.

 

2017/2399 and 2017/2412 408 Mare Street E8 1HP Erection of rear roof extension, elevational alterations and conversion of the upper floors from a betting office (use class A2) to two self-contained dwellings (use class C3). (Micheal Garvey 020 8356 8053)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2363 and 2017/2369 10 Sutton Place E9 6EH Excavation of basement to increase internal height; replacement of windows and doors on front and rear elevation with timber framed double-glazed sash windows and outward opening door on front elevation; new timber door to under pavement vault; alterations to steps in front lightwell. [Note for consultation, Listed Building Consent application 2017/2369 also received] (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

The Clapton CAAC recognise this is an ambitious proposal which gains very little - just 200mm of height in an already adequate basement. We are concerned that the SE report establishes only that the proposal can be built but does not address the effect on the integrity of the listed Georgian terrace or the long term risks. We are concerned the granting of permission might set a precedent which, if applied elsewhere might harm the structural stability of the terrace - particularly at the ends.

 

2017/2281 17 18 19 Sutton Square E9 6EQ Erection of a rear roof dormer extension across numbers 17-19 at second floor level, installation of roof lights to the front roof slope and installation of new doors at ground floor level to numbers 17 and 18 and erection of a single-storey ground floor rear extension to number 19. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

Whilst we applaud the ambition of this proposal we recognise it sets an awkward precedent in that it fails to consider what might happen further along the terrace in the future. Future dormer proposal elsewhere in the terrace will likely compromise the intention and coherence that the applicant is at pains to protect.

 

2017/2463 Cedra Court Cazenove Road N16 6AT Erection of part single/part two storey extension at main roof level to create 8 x 4 bedroom flats, associated terraces, new bin enclosures, secure cycle storage, landscape enhancement at ground floor level, demolition of existing garages and provision of new parking layout. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC welcomes the progress this application has made but feels it isn't quite acceptable yet. Whilst we think a two storeys could work, the current proposal doesn't quite demonstrate that it does. In the application, the views are more encouraging than the elevations. We question whether the horizontal accoutrements (glazing bars, floor plates, etc) compromise the verticality of the glazing design. We also suspect the massing would be more subservient if it were entirely flat front, instead of slavish following the existing building line beneath where it juts out at the stairwells.

 

2017/2048 29 Forburg Road N16 6HP Erection of rear roof dormer extension; replacement of existing front door and window at basement level; replacement of existing rear window at basement level; erection of a single storey lower groudn floor extension; installation of skylight to front roof slope; conversion of dwellinghouse into 2 self-contained flats. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

There are no documents for this application so the Clapton CAAC is unable to assess it.

 

2017/1634 Flat C 92 Forburg Road N16 6HT Erection of rear dormer extension, new front and rear rooflights (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal provided conservation-style rooflights are specified. We also note the apparent intention to face the dormer in lead. If this is indeed the case, officers should be satisfied that it can be applied neatly and will not be prone to distortion over time or when hot.

 

2017/2539 35 Oldhill Street N16 6LR Retrospective planning permission for erection of galvanised steel extract flue on side elevation of rear addition (outrigger) from ground floor to roof level. (Tim Wild 0208 356 8253)

Our previous submissions on the refused applications remain valid: "We object to the extractor flue as a large, glaring eyesore, grossly insensitive to its surroundings. Every adjacent building is either Grade II listed (Grove House and nos 2-8 Stamford Grove West) or locally-listed (Stamford Grove Mansions). It disrupts the view of anyone walking up the street. We welcome the LPA’s Enforcement notice."

 

2017/1504 127 Osbaldeston Road N16 6ND Excavation of front lightwell and installation of velux window to front roof pitch in loft. (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2188 10 Filey Avenue N16 6NT Conversion of single dwellinghouse to two self-contained residential flats (one 3-bed and one 2-bed); erection of dormer extension to main rear roof; installation of three rooflights to main front roof; erection of front lightwell containing stairs in association with additional basement excavation; erection of rear courtyard at basement level with stairs to garden; associated alterations, including to front boundary wall and in front garden, with refuse storage established (Tim Wild 0208 356 8253)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2746 48 Alkham Road N16 7AA Erection of part two-storey, part three-storey rear extension at lower ground, upper ground and first floor levels to provide ancillary floorspace for existing synagogue (D1 use class) (Tim Wild 0208 356 8253)

There are no documents for this application so the Clapton CAAC is unable to assess it.

 

2017/2366 58 Kyverdale Road N16 7AJ Erection of a single storey rear extension at lower ground floor level; re-located stairwell and platform at upper ground floor level; dormer at main roof level and rooflights to the front and rear roofslope. Development in association with the proposed conversion of the property to three flats. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/1358 43 Northwold Road Ground & First/Second floor flats N16 7DH Replacement of all front & rear timber windows with Upvc framed windows (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC objects to the replacement of timber windows with UPVC. Timber or aluminium box sash frames should be used.

 

2017/2724 24 Osbaldeston Road N16 7DP Excavation of basement accommodation and introduction of front and rear lightwells (Catherine Slade 020 8356 8056)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/1460 38 Osbaldeston Road N16 7DP Erection of a side and rear dormer extension to the main roof slope; roof exension above the front bay and installation of 2.no roof lights to the front roof slope. (Catherine Slade 020 8356 8056)

The Clapton CAAC objects to the large, overbearing dormer which disrupts the roofline and unbalanced the pair of hipped roofs. We anticipate similar (albeit smaller) schemed in the vicinity pre-date the Conservation Area designation and provide no precedent for allowing further harm.

 

2017/1861 43 Norcott Road N16 7EJ Erection of single storey rear extensions (Sissi Yang 02083561352)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/2036 72 Brooke Road N16 7RU Erection of single storey extension at ground floor level. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

The Clapton CAAC has no objection to the proposal.

 

2017/1956 Flat B 58 Brooke Road N16 7RX Replace timber french windows with aluminium casement windows (Elliott Doumanis)

There are no drawings for this application so the Clapton CAAC is unable to assess it.
