Dalston CAAC December 2016

Planning Applications for DCAAC meeting December 2016

 

2016/3552 9-31 Millers Avenue, E8 2DS Change of use from storage (B8 use class) and car parking (Sui Generis use class) to workshop units for business and light industrial purposes (B1 use class) and two 2-bed flats (C3 use class); removal of shipping containers and erection of part four, part three and part two-storey building with associated roof terraces at second and third floor levels for flats; associated cycle storage, refuse/recycling storage and disabled car park (Tim Wild 0208 356 8253)

The bulk and massing of the proposed building would overshadow the 2-storey mews nearby, which is a historic building having the potential for a high quality renovation – this should influence the design and scale of anything built next to it. The applicant should be asked to propose something more sympathetic to its surroundings within the conservation area.

 

2016/3743 296 Queensbridge Road E8 3NH Replacement of existing timber framed windows and doors with double glazed timber framed windows and doors (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377) [Application Granted]

The application is insufficiently researched, and the conservation officer’s reported comments surprisingly unclear, although they do recommend refurbishment not replacement. What is needed is a more detailed survey of existing glazing bars. Existing windows should be conserved and repaired by a competent firm and only replaced where qualified opinion judges this to be necessary.

 

The proposed replacements are of poor quality with stick-on bars. They are too deep, 24 mm is not acceptable in a 19th century Listed Building, any new window should be 12mm deep. It would be very useful for the council to supply an approved window example for cases such as this.

2016/3785 36-44 Stoke Newington Road Hackney LONDON N16 7XJ Erection of single storey roof extension. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061) [Application Withdrawn]

The proposed dormer windows should be timber sash windows. In a conservation area, existing UPVC windows are not a justification for adding more of the same.

 

2016/4047 68 Shacklewell Lane Hackney LONDON E8 2EY Erection of a single storey outbuilding. (James Clark 020 8356 7731) [Application Granted]

The proposal would cover a large percentage of the house’s back garden. We would expect neighbours to be consulted about the impact of the application on the amenity value of their back gardens. A green roof would mitigate the impact on garden views.

 

2016/3084 69 Kingsland High Street LONDON E8 2JS Demolition of existing extensions and boundary wall and erection of a part single storey, part two storey extension to rear of 69 Kingsland High Street to facilitate conversion of existing flat over first and second floors into two flats and erection of a connected part two storey, part three storey, part four storey rear building to provide A3 Use Class at ground floor level with two self-contained residential units over first, second and third floor levels; including the provision of balconies at first and second floor and a roof terrace at third floor level. For the purposes of consultation only: Existing accommodation: 87.3m2 A3 Use Class, 1 x two bedroom flat Proposed accommodation: 115m2 A3 Use Class, 3 x one bedroom flats and 1 x two bedroom flat. (Catherine Slade 020 8356 8056)

Considering the proposed Bradbury Street façade, the proportion of the windows could be improved to complement its context.

 

2016/3533 Flat B 82 Colvestone Crescent E8 2LJ Enlargement of the rear window at first floor level. (Sissi Yang 02083561352) [Application Granted]

2016/3829 310 Queensbridge Road E8 3NH Replacement of timber framed windows at first and second floor levels to the front elevation with double glazed timber framed windows. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377) [Application Granted]

What is needed is a detailed survey of existing glazing bars. Existing windows should be conserved and repaired by a competent firm and only replaced when justified, that is where a qualified specialist judges this to be necessary.

 

Any replacements should be 12mm deep, 24mm would not be acceptable in a 19th century Listed Building. It would be very useful for the council to supply an approved window example for cases such as this.

 

2016/4141 McDonalds 36-42 Kingsland High Street E8 2 JP Non-Material Amendment of planning permission dated 16/08/2016 for alterations to shopfront at ground floor level including replacement signage and creation of a terrace at first floor level; namely to alter the reconfiguration of the terrace furniture and balustrade at first floor level.

2016/4223 101 Dalston Lane, E8 1NH Basement excavation to provide additional floorspace to existing youth club (Sui Generis use class), including external courtyard at basement level and floor space benefiting from internal voids; erection of partial single-storey extensions at ground floor level to Dalston Lane frontage; erection of elevational alterations (doors and windows); establishment of associated internal refuse/recycling and bicycle storage (Tim Wild 0208 356 8253)

Not in a CA, adjacent to St Mark’s CA.

 

The drawings are insufficient to demonstrate the quality required for any building on this important site. It appears that the proposal doesn’t fit with the context, which includes a listed building opposite on Dalston Lane, and is the original centre of the settlement of Dalston. A replacement of a poor building shouldn’t be another poor building.

 

The proposed works which include basement excavation will require conditions about disruption to neighbours and protection of adjacent properties. The new building should include a wider pavement on Cecilia Road or some kind of external gathering space for the youth club.

 

2016/4260 48-76 Dalston Lane and land within Fenton Close E8 3AH Non-Material Amendment to planning permission 2014/1279 dated 10/09/2014 to make the following changes: - Alteration of materials to mansards on Block A from zinc to slate (Evie Learman 0208 356 8245) [Application Granted]
