20 UPPER MONTAGU STREET   17/08371/FULL/PP-06372688  

Erection of a conservatory at rear first floor level, associated internal and external alterations. (Linked to 17/08372/LBC) 

Comment: The only issue we see to highlight here is the relationship between the new layout and the chimney breasts on second and third floors.

In both cases, although not ideal, we think that an appropriate balance has been struck between the needs of any modern home, the practical requirements of drainage, and the integrity of the heritage in this house.

Regarding the second floor in particular we would suggest that detailed drawings are required as a condition to show that the bathroom partitioning has a minimal effect on the adjacent fabric.
