Kingsland CAAC June 2022

Planning Applications for Kingsland CAAC meeting for June 2022

 

2022/1164 55 De Beauvoir Road, N1 5AU Proposed swimming pool to the rear of the house. Certificate of Lawful Development Existing/Proposed (Monika Vistartaite)

We have no objection in principle but we think that the applicant should have provided more information. For example the effect of the excavation on the tree roots, details of the water supply, treatment and drainage of the pool water.

 

2022/1051 495 Kingsland Road, E8 4AU Removal of existing flue/extractor and installation of new flue/extractor system to two storey rear addition Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

We have no objection provided the extraction unit does not adversely affect the adjacent properties with low background noise and vibration. It is a pity that the layout of the restaurant requires such extensive ductwork. We note that the name of the restaurant has been changed from Arthur's Cafe with new signage for which there appears to be no planning consent.

 

2022/1112 447 Kingsland Road, E8 4AU Excavation of basement extension including installation of rear lightwells to facilitate the enlargement of the existing studio unit to a 2-bedroom unit. Full Planning Permission (Alix Hauser)

Incorrect address, should be 447 Kingsland Road. See comments in line 24.

 

2021/3733 495 Kingsland Road, E8 4AU Erection of two storey rear extension and mansard roof extension , to form an additional residential unit, with roof terraces at first, second and third floors and increased commercial floorspace space at ground floor level . Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

We object to this application. It would appear that by replacement of the courtyard with a new internal area there will be only one means of escape in case of fire, namely though the front door of the building, which is inadequate for a restaurant. There is an additional application 2022/1051 for installation of a new flue to the two storey addition. However this would terminate adjacent to the proposed terrace at third floor level. Even without the terrace this would compromise air quality outside the proposed mansard addition.

 

2022/0762 138 Southgate Road, N1 3HX General refurbishment including; Painting mortar renderings (window sills); Repaving the existing concrete slab driveway and path with permeable block paving and Victorian mosaic tiles; Repairing exterior window sills, window casings, and other external masonry including porch columns; Repairing existing front boundary wall; Replacing existing sash windows with hardwood timber traditional sliding box sash windows; Replacing existing front gate and swing gate. Householder Planning (Raymond Okot)

We object to this application which lacks important information. There are no details of the proposed new gates, the replacement windows or the Victorian mosaic tiles.

 

2022/1104 Flat A, 93 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BL Replacement of rear windows at lower ground floor level with double glazed timber sash windows and double glazed timber casement window. Replacement of existing plastic cill with painted masonry cills. Listed Building Consent (Micheal Garvey)

No objection

 

2022/1103 Flat A, 93 Balls Pond Road, N1 4BL Replacement of rear windows at lower ground floor level with double glazed timber sash windows and double glazed timber casement window. Replacement of existing plastic cill with painted masonry cills. Full Planning Permission (Micheal Garvey)

No objection

 

2022/0576 124 De Beauvoir Road, N1 4DJ Basement extension with a new front light-well; installation of an ASHP external unit to the rear extension; and a new boundary wall to the front Householder Planning [Application Granted - Extra Conditions] (Monika Vistartaite)

We object to this application. The forward excavation with shower room, storage and lightwell set a dangerous precedent for further such developments in the Conservation Area. More than half of the front garden will be excavated. There has already been substantial development on this site with a rear extension far larger than that recommended in the De Beauvoir Design guide. We are therefore concerned at the further loss of free draining, open ground. The proposed central brick pier and railings will have a deleterious effect on the joint portico and therefore the setting of the terrace. The applicant does not provide specifications for the ASHP but its proposed location on the top of rear extension could result in noise pollution for the neighbours.

 

2022/0161 134 Tottenham Road, N1 4DY Replacement of the front and rear windows with double glazed timber windows, replacement of front and side doors Householder Planning (Danny Huber)

We are pleased that the Carolina style front door is to be replaced with a traditional six panelled wooden door. However we would prefer to see windows W01, W02 and W03 on the front elevation to be replaced with 3 over 3 panes like W04 to match the neighbouring properties in this locally listed terrace.

 

2022/1136 35 Northchurch Terrace, N1 4EB Erection of two storey side extension at lower and ground floor levels with rooftop solar panels; erection of single storey rear extension at lower ground floor; alterations to fenestration on front, side and rear elevations; replacement of front boundary treatment; installation of gate in side boundary wall; installation of bike store atop new landing in rear garden; changes to front lightwell; installation of bike and bin store in front setback; landscaping and other associated works. Householder Planning (Alix Hauser)

We have no objection to the proposed revisions, although we think that the bike/bin store in the front garden should be more discretely placed. 29 Northchurch Road is quoted as a precedent but the original location shown in the photograph did not have planning consent and the applicant was required to relocate this large store adjacent to the front hedge.

 

2022/1137 35 Northchurch Terrace, N1 4EB Erection of two storey side extension at lower and ground floor levels with rooftop solar panels; erection of single storey rear extension at lower ground floor; alterations to fenestration on front, side and rear elevations; replacement of front boundary treatment; installation of gate in side boundary wall; installation of bike store atop new landing in rear garden; changes to front lightwell; installation of bike and bin store in front setback; landscaping and other associated works. Listed Building Consent (Alix Hauser)

We have no objection to the proposed revisions, although we think that the bike/bin store in the front garden should be more discretely placed. 29 Northchurch Road is quoted as a precedent but the original location shown in the photograph did not have planning consent and the applicant was required to relocate this large store adjacent to the front hedge.

 

2022/1011 37 Northchurch Road, N1 4EE Erection of a single storey ground floor rear/side extension, landscaping alterations, replacement of timber boundary treatment, insertion of vent at first floor level, internal alterations. Listed Building Consent (Catherine Nichol)

We strongly object to this application. The proposed extension, in wrapping around the host building, and the materials suggested would have a detrimental effect on the Ufton Road façade. The top section would be clearly seen from street level which at this point forms part of a prominent view within the Conservation Area. The side section would also be seen from Northchurch Road and would affect the setting of both the existing building and the neighbouring properties in the street.

 

2022/1106 58 Englefield Road, N1 4HA Erection of a mansard-style roof extension with extension of chimneys Householder Planning (Danny Huber)

We strongly object to this application which would compromise the roofline of the terrace. We take issue with the following in the Design and Access statement "generally butterfly roofs are no longer visible within the CA" and "development would not contribute to loss of an unbroken roof line or visible butterfly roof".

 

2022/1064 3, Walton Villas Downham Road, N1 5AN Removal of existing staircase and replacement with a new walkway and spiral staircase. Householder Planning (James Clark)

No objection

 

2022/1167 50 Mortimer Road, N1 5AP Alterations to the front garden gate and wall Householder Planning (Jonathan Bainbridge)

There is insufficient information in this application and therefore we object. There are no detailed drawings of the gate and railings showing their size and style of finials. The finished height of the brick wall is too high, it should be three courses of brickwork plus coping stone with taller railings than proposed in keeping with the period of the property. The brick pillars on either side of the gate do not align with the front door giving an unbalanced effect. The bin store should be more discretely located and we would like to see larger scale York stone.

 

2022/1030 William Gee House, 520 - 522 Kingsland Road, E8 4AH Redevelopment of the buildings with extensions and changes of use to provide nine new residential units, refurbished commercial space (use class E); associated cycle parking, refuse and recycling facilities; landscaping to Forest Place Full Planning Permission (Gerard Livett)

No objection

 

2022/1269 Unit 7, Canalside Studios, 2 - 4 Orsman Road, N1 5FB Display of externally illuminated fascia and projecting signs Advertisement Consent (Gerard Livett)

No objection

 

2022/1112 447 Kingsland Road, E8 4AU Excavation of basement extension including installation of rear lightwells to facilitate the enlargement of the existing studio unit to a 2-bedroom unit. Full Planning Permission (Alix Hauser)

We have no objection provided that the works are carried out with due diligence. There are some concerns about the effects of excavation on the adjoining property to the south.
