Planning Applications for Stoke Newington CAAC Monday 14 January 2019


2018/4456 148-154 Stoke Newington Church Street N16 0JU Variation of Condition 2 (time limit to implement shopfront alterations) of planning permission 2017/4235 dated 19/01/2018 for the 'retrospective application for the demolition of the buildings at 148- 154 Stoke Newington Church Street and the erection of a new 3 storey building incorporating retail units at ground floor and 3 self-contained flats at first and second floors, comprising 1x 2 bed and 2x 1 bed units. The proposed removal of the existing shop fronts and replacement with new shopfronts.' (Alix Hauser 020 8356 6377)

Although we a dismayed by the prevarication, we have no objection to the proposals provided the Council proceeds with alacrity.


2018/4712 14 Queen Elizabeths Walk N16 0HX Submission of details pursuant to part of condition 6 brick material, attached to planning permission ref 2018/1414 dated 04/06/2018. (Alyce Jeffery 020 8356 1804)

We have no objection to the proposals.

2018/4373 & 2018/4377 109 Stoke Newington Church Street N16 0UD Changes to arrangement to shopfront and vegetable stands and removal and reinstatement of entrance door at western part of shopfront. & Partial removal of ground floor doors and partitions, structural alterations at ground floor and basement levels for strengthening and remedial works, erection of new fire rated partitions to create a separate entry corridor and enclosure of ground floor stair in fire rated partitioning and replacement of street door.  (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

Broadly, we have no objection to the proposals. However detailed drawings of (a possibly revised) front door should be secured by condition as its proportions as shown on the elevation suggest it is badly proportioned and inappropriate. Additionally the "retained vegetable stands" should be removed from all proposed drawings (they exist on plan but not elevation) to avoid them becoming a formal part of the consent.


2018/4483 54 Lordship Park N16 5UA Non-material amendment to planning permission 2015/1574 dated 04/08/2015. Effect of amendment would be to raise the rear ground floor parapet of the south elevation by 600mm, introduce a skylight/AOV to circulation stair at roof level and a skylight to rear offshoot extension at first floor roof level. (Gerard Livett 020 8356 8398)

We object to this non-material amendment. The consented addition is already unsympathetic and large (as noted by the officer in the report for the consented scheme and to which CUDS apparently objected) and this 600mm extra height tips it well into the realms of overdevelopment and a monolith that is no longer subservient. Furthermore the drawings appear to minimise the effect of the additional increase in height and we doubt their accuracy. We are not convinced that the consented scheme is unbuildable. Rather the applicant appears to hanker for the convenience of level floors front-to-back which is uncharacteristic of a home of this period and location; and to avoid underpinning. If it is the case that the development is unbuildable then this considerable amendment cannot be a non-material amendment.


2018/4179 15 Edwards Lane N16 0JJ Erection of ground floor rear extensions, replacement uPVC windows with timber sash windows, erection of a rear dormer window and front and rear rooflights and removal of paintwork on principle elevation to restore original brick. (Jeni Cowan 020 8356 1371)

We have no objection to the proposals provided more details on how paint is to be removed (to avoid removing the face of the bricks) is secured by condition.


2018/4725 Adj. 196-198 Stoke Newington High Street N16 0LH Two LED digital display screens, located on either side of the InLink. (Kim Aukett 020 8356 4740)

In this particularly congested footpath location, dense with heritage assets, internal illumination is generally not appropriate as it is a particular distraction. As a minimum there should be strict limits on levels of luminance.


2018/4724 Adj. 196-198 Stoke Newington High Street N16 0LH Prior notification for the installation of a BT InLink electronic communications apparatus InLink (Kim Aukett 020 8356 4740)

2018/4528 Opp. 201-207 Stoke Newington High Street N16 7HU Display of digital advertisement panels on a new InLink Unit on the footway opposite 201-207 Stoke Newington High Street (Louise Prew)

The proposed location at the kerb edge is a considerable inconvenience, hindrance and hazard which detracts from the Conservation Area. If it were sited at the set-back location of the removed kiosks it may well be acceptable.


2018/4718 210 Stoke Newington High Street N16 7HU Display of 1 internally illuminated fascia sign (Louise Prew)

Internally illuminated signs are broadly to be resisted (as per the Shopfront Design Guide) and certainly at this mammoth, eye-catching scale which only served to highlight the egregiously oversized fascia (which we would object to if this were a shopfront application) to the detriment of the Conservation Area


2019/0009 110 Stoke Newington High Street N16 7NY Alterations to existing shopfront (Richard Kealey 020 8356 6469)

We have no objection to the shopfront design. However it is not clear how the lettering is illuminated. We object to self-illuminated or internally illuminated lettering which would be contrary to the Shopfront Design Guide. Modest halo lighting around opaque lettering would be acceptable,
