Planning Application - MA Responses for November 2018

Mon, December 31, 2018 12:00 PM | Anonymous

Please find below responses to planning applications by the Marylebone Association Planning sub-committee. Any comments should be referred to Neil Wilson. planning@marylebone.org 

BASEMENT AND GROUND FLOOR 42 MARYLEBONE HIGH STREET 18/08647/FULL/PP-07342795 Installation of mechanical plant at rear elevation of the building, within a shared service yard (retrospective)

Objection: There appears to be a substantial amenity impact from the installed plant on the nearby residents which is unacceptable. The Noise Report refers to daytime use however it appears from neighbours comments that the plant is running 24hrs. If WCC is minded to grant approval then measures must be taken to enclosure the units within acoustic enclosures. Enforcement action should be taken as necessary. NW: 12 November 2018

5 SPANISH PLACE 18/08517/FULL/PP-07305359 Erection of a rear two storey extension at lower ground and ground floor level in order to enlarge dwellinghouse (Class C3), excavation under pavement vaults, installation of air conditioning units within an acoustic enclosure at roof level, addition of a roof hatch to provide access to a sunken roof terrace, erection of a pergola at rear first floor level, internal alterations and general refurbishment works. (Linked to 18/08518/LBC)

Objection: Several objections have been raised by neighbours regarding potential noise and overlooking from the proposed rear balcony. It is difficult to see from drawings what the relationship is between the terrace and 6 Spanish Place Mansions, and we would draw the council's attention to this when visiting site. However, the drawings show this terrace already exists and the applicant seeks to add planting to screen the terrace which would be an improvement over the existing.
 Light pollution from the glazed extension may be an issue and again this should be considered at site visit. Concern has also been voiced regarding vibration from the new roof level plant though we expect this would be conditioned, should the proposals be approved. Alteration Plan A - 2016.07.100 B shows retention of nibs to the wall adjacent the corridor at lower ground floor whereas the proposed shows full demolition. We suggest it would be more appropriate to retain nibs to express the original plan form. The formation of a doorway between the ground floor rear room and extension alters the historical circulation of the building which is usually resisted by council. Declaration of Interest - The Association would like it noted that a member of their planning panel has links with this application. This member has not been involved in making the submission below.

OPEN SPACE BRYANSTON SQUARE 18/08898/FULL/PP-07363573 Refurbishment of the existing garden shed, to provide toilets and kitchen facilities, and erection of a small storage shed to the west of the existing unit and installation of a cesspit.

No Objection: Though we have heard the concerns of residents that the square remains private and not be subject to commercial use this is a matter for management of the square. We do not have any objection with regards to the proposed development itself.

JH: 14 November 2018

ROMNEY MEWS 18/08843/FULL Variation of conditions 1 and 17 of planning permission dated 01 August 2018 (RN 18/03593/FULL) for the Erection of three bedroom dwellinghouse (Class C3) over ground to fourth floor level; NAMELY, to enable the installation of metal balustrades and a sliding access rooflight at roof level to facilitate the use of the roof as a terrace.

No Objection : JH: 14 November 2018

11 DEVONSHIRE MEWS WEST 18/08497/FULL/PP-07270152 Demolition behind retained front and rear facades of the building to create a new 2 bedroom mews house (Class C3) with new basement level.

Comment: The existing coach doors appear to be a matching pair and one of the few remaining examples of original coach doors along the mews. The proposed replacement appears to have been designed to match a modern example at no. 12 and disturbs the balance of the elevation. Whilst we accept that the new use requires improved light levels at ground floor and new light to the basement, there are better examples of how this can be achieved than is currently being proposed. Should the council be minded to approve the application we would recommend conditioning the detail of this item. Whilst not a planning consideration we urge the applicant to review fire escape from basement level which appears to be through inner rooms. We have received several objections to the scheme based on noise and dust pollution. Given recent disturbance in this area we recommend WCC pay particular attention to the Construction Management Plan to ensure disturbance is kept to a minimum. JH: 14 November 2018

11 BAKER STREET 18/08780/TELECOM Installation of one public call box on the pavement adjacent to 11 Baker Street.

Objection: We are seriously concerned with the overall design, size, bulk and crude detail-design of these items. In their current proposed format they will have too much impact on the clutter of our public realm, and we believe they will not weather well over time, unless better detailing and higher quality materials are used. We also have concerns relating to how well they will be maintained. Moreover, other authorities in the country have identified problems created by these types of installation relating to drug-dealing, hoax 999 calls, street robbery, and other antisocial behavior. These installations are a further unwelcome advertising intrusion on public spaces and an assault on the senses, particularly in sensitive conservation areas.
