9 DEVONSHIRE MEWS SOUTH 18/00173/FULL/PP-06597409 Demolition of existing building and erection of replacement dwellinghouse (Class C3) over ground, first and second floor levels with integral garage and roof terrace at rear second floor level.
Comment: The proposed front elevation is too ‘busy’ with a mixture of light brickwork, darker brickwork courses, render panels, oak lined window reveals and brickwork ‘shutter effect’ either side of the windows. Traditional mews houses are more utilitarian and use a simpler pallette of materials.
The 1st floor windows are too small and ground floor fenestration too low in comparison to neighbouring buildings.
A unified full width approach to the ground floor would better remember original uses as stabling/coach house. WH: 13 February 2018
67 HARLEY STREET 18/00220/FULL/PP-06652488 Deletion of Condition 7 of planning permission dated 20 December 2017 (RN: 17/09838/FULL) for, 'Insertion of a window in the side wall at ground floor level and replacing a door at the rear'; NAMELY in order to allow the use of the rear ground floor flat roof as a terrace.
No Objection: VS: 22 February 2018
19 NEW QUEBEC STREET 18/00204/FULL/PP-06627633 Use of the ground floor and basement for a composite retail, restaurant and training purposes (Sui Generis), installation of a replacement awning and associated minor internal alterations. (Linked to 18/00205/LBC)
1-2 WELBECK STREET 17/11372/FULL/PP-06628218 Use of sub-basement area, third, fourth and fifth floors of 1-2 Welbeck Street as dual / alternative use as office (Class B1) and/or medical use (Class D1), installation of a single storey storage, plant and cycle provision enclosure in the rear courtyard, and plant to the roof and to the rear elevation.
7 BEVERSTON MEWS 18/00246/FULL/PP-06658071 Erection of a single storey mansard roof extension to provide addition residential accommodation in connection with the existing single family dwelling (Class C3).
Comment: The provision of a mansard roof in principle is acceptable however, the extension of the proposed mansard beyond the adjoining perpendicular façade does not relate to the facade arrangement over the lower floors. The current roof turns the corner however the proposed roof runs on beyond the perpendicular parapet wall, and comes to an abrupt stop providing an uncomfortable junction with the existing roof. Consideration could be given to pulling the mansard back to the perpendicular parapet wall on the front elevation only to relate to the lower floors of the property. VS: 22 February 2018
