Clapton CAAC June 2023

Planning Applications for Clapton CAAC meeting for 15 June 2023


2023/0967 Olive School, 2 Lower Clapton Road, E5 0PD Installation of new signage along the front elevation of 32 St John's Church Road and 2-4 Clapton Road; alterations to the design of the front door and alterations to the fenestrations of 32 St John's Church Road; increase in size of sloped access Full Planning Permission (Thomas Russell)

While CAAC has no objection to the size, placing and colour of the signage or the alterations proposed to the door and window in St John Church Road, we do object to the fact that the wording on the sign on Lower Clapton Road does not correspond with the School's Operational Plan. Under that plan, the front door is the entrance for KS2 pupils (i.e. Years 5 and 6). The sign redirects all pupils to the rear entrance on St John's Church Road - with the result that all 630 pupils enter through the one door. The Operational Plan was written as a consequence of the Inspector's Report following the 2016 Public Consultation and should be adhered to by the school. The wording on the Lower Clapton Road sign shows the school overriding the Inspector's determination and for this reason should not be permitted.


2023/1244 Flat B, 183 Brooke Road, E5 8AB Retrospective application for the existing bike shed. Householder Planning (Jonathan Bainbridge)

Clapton CAAC has not objection to this application.


2023/1068 5, Churchwell Court, 5 Clapton Square, E5 8HU Erection of first floor extension and refurbishment of existing building with external wall insulation and double-glazed windows; erection of external staircase; provision of new employment unit. Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1291 4 Narford Road, E5 8RD It is proposed to replace the existing single-glazed timber sash and casement windows with new timber double-glazed windows to match the existing. Full Planning Permission (Jonathan Bainbridge)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1175 Flat 26, Weissmandel Court, 76 Clapton Common, E5 9FA Removal of existing canopies above the fifth floor terraces and their replacement with conservatory style glass walls and roof. Full Planning Permission (James Clark)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application on the following grounds: the Existing Elevation does not show the canopies currently in place; the application does not specify the materials proposed.


2023/1080 Basement And Ground Floor, 412 Mare Street, E8 1HP Proposed removal of existing render/shop front, existing roller shutter and replacement with roller shutters, fascia panel, signage, glazing and shopfront. Installation of new steam extract grille, fresh air intake grille at rear elevation and AC Compressor. Listed Building Consent (Alishba Emanuel)

Clapton CAAC has not objection to this application - assuming that the noise from the compressor is of an acceptable level.


2023/1213 Quick Silver, 387 Mare Street, E8 1HY Partially retrospective application for the installation of 3x existing rooflights and alterations in the size of the rear windows at first-floor level. Proposed alterations to fenestrations along the rear elevation at ground-floor level; Internal alterations Full Planning Permission (Thomas Russell)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application on the grounds that there are no plans provided - an essential requirement on any building, far more so on a Grade II listed property.


2023/1046 46 Amhurst Road, E8 1JH Demolition of single storey garage to rear of 46 Amhurst Road and erection of single storey Class E Artists's Studio Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/0839 20 Amhurst Road, E8 1JW Proposed replacement of an air source heat pump and condenser unit. Full Planning Permission (Alishba Emanuel)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1053 57 Chardmore Road, N16 6JA Joint application for the erection of rear dormers projecting from the rear roof slopes of nos 55 & 57 Chardmore Road Full Planning Permission (Thomas Russell)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1127 64 Chardmore Road, N16 6JH Erection of a rear infill extension together with a first- floor rear extension and other minor works. Householder Planning (James Clark)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1079 74 Filey Avenue, N16 6JJ Excavation of basement and erection of basement and ground floor rear extensions; erection of first floor rear extension; erection of rear dormer roof extension and raising of part of roof ridge height; erection of single-storey front infill extension Householder Planning (Gerard Livett)

Clapton CAAC objects to this applicaton. The terrace is of uniform height and has largely retained a traditional style of front dormer. To raise the party wall and extend the roof slope to meet it adversely affects the uniformity of the terrace in particular concerning ridge lines.. In th Inpsector's determination on 165 Osbaldeston Road (2021/3117 ) it is stated: 'The guidance set out within the Supplementary Planning Document Residential Extensions and Alterations 2009 (SPD), [states] paragraph 3.69, that any proposed roof conversion should be designed the reflect the original roof type.


2023/0950 165 Osbaldeston Road, N16 6ND Excavation of basement and formation of a rear lightwell, erection of a part single and part two storey rear extension at basement and ground floor Householder Planning (Danny Huber)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application. The Applicant refers to the lowest floor as ‘subterranean’ whereas it is very clearly visible and its upper half clearly above the line marked as ‘Garden Level’. It is not ‘subterranean’ and therefore is not truly a ‘basement floor’. Drawing OR.165.PR.203 clearly shows that the ‘ground floor’ extension is higher than the garden level. What it is is a four-metre platform on which to build a three-metre ground floor extension. The Inspector notes: 'The ground floor and basement extension would extend to a depth of 5m. Above ground level this would be akin to a single storey rear extension which the SPD for terraced/end of terraced houses, should not exceed 3m.’ While the ground floor extension is now given as 4 metres, this is still contrary to the SPD. We would repeat the Inspector’s determination that: ‘The combination of a large extension of this nature … would result in a combination of proposals which fail to be subordinate to the host dwelling and would make the original rear elevation unrecognisable in a visible location within the CA.


2023/1141 112a Osbaldeston Road, N16 6NJ Erection of a ground floor single-storey rear side-return extension together with basement excavation, the creation of front and rear lightwells and alterations to the front boundary wall. Householder Planning (James Clark)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1149 94 Osbaldeston Road, N16 6NL Loft conversion with the erection of a side hipped roof and rear dormer; reinstatement of hipped roof above two-storey bay feature; installation of front and side rooflights Householder Planning (Danny Huber)

While Clapton CAAC welcomes the restoration of the bonnet on this house, we are concerned that artificial materials will be used for the windows rather than wood. The Planning Statement' refers to the frames having 'the appearance of white painted timber' - without stting what the material actually is. We would press for timber in line with SPD.


2023/1034 83 Maury Road, N16 7BT Excavation at basement level to create front and rear lightwells in association with providing two additional HMO rooms Full Planning Permission (Catherine Nichol)

Clapton CAAC objects to this application for the same reasons as given on the previous application for this site. We do not believe that painting the walls white and landscaping the garden will mame the basement rooms light-filled and habitable.


2023/0298 47 Northwold Road, N16 7DH Excavation of basement and formation of front and rear light-wells to facilitate use of basement as a 2 bed flat (Use Class C3); erection of cycle and refuse storage; alterations to landscaping and boundary treatment Full Planning Permission (Danny Huber)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1109 23 Stoke Newington Common, N16 7ER Erection of a rear dormer extension and installation of 2x rooflights to front roof slope. Householder Planning (Alishba Emanuel)

Clapton CAAC objects to the proposal to erect a full-width rear dormer. The D&A Statement refers to two existing rear dormers, but both were given permission before the establishement of the CA and only one is full width, that at 23 is half-width.


2023/1152 Flat B, 11 Stoke Newington Common, N16 7ES Replacement of windows and doors with double-glazed windows and doors Householder Planning (Gerard Livett)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.


2023/1232 Tubby's Charcoal Grill & Italian Pizza, 52 Evering Road, N16 7SR Retrospective planning application for the retention of 2x refrigeration condensing units at the rear of the property Full Planning Permission (Thomas Russell)

Clapton CAAC has no objection to this application.
