Kingsland CAAC 25 April 2017

Planning Applications for KCAAC meeting on Monday 25 April 2017

 

2017/0658 57 Balls Pond Road N1 4BW Replacement of single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows on all elevations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection, but we ask that the Planning Officer should confirm that the glazing bars do match existing originals.

 

2017/1252 111 De Beauvoir Road N1 4DL Erection of a low level roof extension to form a new second floor on the property (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

We object to this application. We are concerned that the drawings are unclear, with no measurements. The windows on the proposed front elevation are not consistent between the plans and elevations. The windows on the proposed front elevation appear to face directly into the parapet, and are extremely close to it . The elevations drawings appear to show that the ceiling height in the proposed 3rdfloor is too low to allow for the required head height given the need for insulation. The full width structure 144 Culford Rd (2010/0767) referred to in the Design and Access statement is not in fact a full width extension but an upstand disguising a partial extension.

 

2017/1069 70 Downham Road N1 5BG Erection of single storey ground floor rear extension. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

We are concerned that the brickwork is not specified, and we would like to see that the same brick is used as that used for the original houses. As the side walls of the extension will form the party walls, we feel that the north-facing façade should also be brick rather than rendered, which would minimise the visual impact from neighbouring gardens. NB a party wall agreement will be needed.

 

2017/1144 81 Downham Road N1 5TR Temporary school buildings to provide 2x two storey, modular buildings (to accommodate classrooms for a total of 150 students - 25 per classroom), single storey building for school hall and 2x single storey administration buildings (Muhammad Saleem)

No objection. However we are curious about the permanent works referred to in section 4.6 of the Design and Access statement and would like the Planning Department to let us know what they comprise.

 

2016/4428 87 Kingsland Road E2 8AG An additional A5 use class to the existing sui generis (mini-cabe use) and associated external flue and extract installation. Opening hours Monday to Sunday including bank holidays 1700 hours to 0200 hours ( 5pm - 2am) (Raymond Okot 020 8356 8080)

No objection. However we would point out that, contrary to information supplied in the Design and Access Statement, this building is in the Kingsland Conservation Area.

 

2017/0771 280 Kingsland Road E8 4DG Outline application for Access, Appearance, Layout and Scale: Erection of three-storey building to provide three self-contained studio flats; External alterations to main building with provision of new door to replace window in rear elevation. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We strongly object to this application. This is a clear case of overdevelopment, added to which there is an overlooking issue given proximity to the existing buildings. There appears to be no other fire exit other than through the building on the Kingsland Rd.

 

2017/0598 538 Kingsland Road E8 4AH Extension of opening hours to 07:00 to 01:00 Monday to Sunday. (Nick Bovaird 0208 356 8291)

We feel that for the sake of residents nearby, early opening should be limited to Monday to Saturday.

 

2017/1451 568A Kingsland Road E8 4AH Use of ground floor as a gym (Class D1) and associated external alterations to include new plant to the rear. Hours of operation - 24 hours. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to this application provided that the Planning Officer is satisfied with the measures put in place to mitigate structure-borne sound and vibration.

 

2017/1456 568A Kingsland Road E8 4AH Display of internally illuminated fascia sign; internally illuminated projecting sign and vinyl to the front of the property at ground floor level. (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

No objection.

 

2017/1464 568A Kingsland Road E8 4AH Internal alterations, installation of air conditioning units to the rear, internally illuminated fascia sign; internally illuminated projecting sign; other associated advertisements and external alterations. Works in association with the conversion of the property to a gym (Class D1). (Louise Smith 0208 356 8061)

We have no objection to this application provided that the Planning Officer is satisfied with the measures put in place to mitigate structure-borne sound and vibration.

 

2017/1090 82A Mortimer Road N1 4LH Erection of a single storey ground floor rear extension; erection of a rear roof dormer extension and installation of a roof light to the front roof slope (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

The existing back elevation of Brewster House is much less consistent and balanced than the front, and we are concerned that the proposed additions should contribute to creating balance rather than adding to inconsistency. Therefore regarding the extension at basement level, we feel that the window should be a little narrower, in order to match the width of the existing window on the floor above. We object to the velux rooflight and dormer, and therefore to the room in the roof.

 

2017/1161 21 Northchurch Terrace N1 4EB Erection of single-storey front extension and two single-storey rear extensions at lower ground floor level; New external front steps to lower ground floor level; Insertion of new rooflight in single-storey side extension; Insertion of replacement window in front elevation of single-storey side extension; Lowering of floor level in single-storey side extension; Relocation of gate in rear side boundary wall. [Note for consultation: Listed Building Consent application 2017/1165 also received] (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

2017/1165 21 Northchurch Terrace N1 4EB Erection of single-storey front extension and two single-storey rear extensions at lower ground floor level; New external front steps to lower ground floor level; Insertion of new rooflight in single-storey side extension; Insertion of replacement window in front elevation of single-storey side extension; Lowering of floor level in single-storey side extension; Removal of internal wall and steps at lower ground floor level; Relocation of gate in rear side boundary wall. [Note for consultation: Application for planning permission 2017/1161 also received] (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We are puzzled as to why the window in the proposed front elevation of the basement extension to the left is not to be dropped to match the level of the window in the existing building. If left in its current place, once the extension is dug down, the window will both be at too high a level, and will remain out of balance with the original part of the house. The fenestration of the rear elevation of the east side extension is visually at odds with the rest of the house, and we strongly object to this part of the proposal, which could be much more attractive. The bedroom in the east side extension appears not to be quite at the same level as the rest of the (original) basement level, which would seem to mitigate against the purpose of creating one level living space. The materials to be used in order to make good the boundary wall where the doorway is to be moved should be consistent with the original.

 

2017/0941 2A Stamford Road N1 4JT Demolition of existing garages and erection of a two storey building and associated works to form a two bedroom self-contained residential dwelling (Toyin Omodara 0208 356 8095)

We strongly object to this application. The constraints on the space and placing available result in a mean little building, and its design does nothing to enhance the Conservation Area.

 

2017/0657 134 Tottenham Road N1 4DY Replacement of single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows on all elevations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

In this run of buildings, the original and predominant style of fenestration is 3 over 3 (as seen in No.150). We therefore feel that, as the windows in the front elevation of this house are to be replaced anyway, they should be returned to this arrangement. We would ask that the Planning Officer ensures that the detailing of the windows is executed appropriately to the Conservation Area.

 

2017/0787 150 Tottenham Road N1 4DY Replacement of single glazed timber windows with double glazed timber windows on all elevations. (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

No objection. We would ask that the Planning Officer ensures that the detailing of the windows is executed appropriately to the Conservation Area.
