16 MONTAGU STREET 19/04907/FULL/PP-07956052 Use of ground floor garages as 2 residential properties (Use Class C3) and associated external alterations including new windows and doors.
Objection; We would expect any application to submit a daylight and sunlight assessment demonstrating that the standard of accommodation meets BRE requirements.
The application drawings do not show either cycle storage (referred to in the planning statement) or refuse or recycling storage. The entry WC is not accessible or Part M compliant.
While the principle of new residential accommodation is welcomed, it needs to be high quality and to comply with the Mayors Housing SPG. We would expect, as a minimum, a Design & Access Statement stating how each of the elements, including space standards etc are addressed in the proposals.
The scheme should not be consented until these are clearly addressed.
Montagu Mews South is a "dead end " cobbled street with no pavements and a single, very narrow entrance from/onto George Street. There is a lot of normal vehicle and pedestrian movement in and out of the Mews on a daily basis including children and elderly. We request that should Planning Approval be granted a condition of a CMP precommencement condition which should severely limit the level of construction vehicle and equipment activity in the Mews, and that any related parking and material storage etc must not impede the access of Mews residents to their properties, garages."

Comment: Generally the drawings are unclear and lack information. No context is shown on the drawings, and the absence of elevation/section markers means it is not possible to establish the affect on amenity of neighbouring occupants. Further information is also required on noise output of relocated plant. JH: 28 August 2019

Objection: The proposed sheer masonry wall facing Gloucester Place Mews has no Architectural merit. It would reduce amenity to the area, harms the streetscape and would magnify the already poor passive overlooking, encouraging crime and antisocial behaviour. JH: 28 August 2019
