What we do

Westminster City Council consults us on every planning application for the area, approximately 1,000 applications annually.  We encourage all developers to engage with us at the earliest opportunity before any pre-application meetings.  We ask that developers and owners give careful regard to the impact their proposal will have not only on the historical or architectural interest of the building, but also on the environment, streetscape and the amenity of neighbours. Generally, we do not object to proposals which have architectural merit, where materials and detailed design take into account and enrich original features and are in proportion to the existing building and streetscape.  See our planning guidelines.

If you disapprove of any development application, please read our guide to objecting effectively.  It is important that you make your views known directly to Westminster City Council, as it is them who determine all planning applications.

    No Objection: The Marylebone Association does not have an objection in principle to the proposed works or use but would like to emphasise that with the increased number of children the need is for the Travel Plan to be exemplary and to be followed diligently and reviewed regularly, to avoid impacting on other local residents.

    1 CHILTERN STREET
    17/04535/FULL/PP-06095999 Erection of an external entrance canopy.
    Objection:
    1. Impact of activity on local community:
    The canopy externalises and brings onto the street activities associated with the hotel that cause disturbance to the local community and could and should be more sensitively dealt with within the courtyard, which would have less of an impact on the neighbouring community. If the canopy is essential to the operations, in addition to the recently consented gate house, if it were within the courtyard it would have a lesser impact.

    2. Design Impact on listed building
    While the design is simple and discrete, it does obscure the view of the rear building from the public realm.

    17/01417/FULL/PP-05819807 Installation of replacement garage doors with toplights on the front elevation. (Site includes 3 & 5 Bryanston Mews West). (Retrospective application)

    Comment: The wording of the application states that this is a retroactive application, however the existing front elevation and garage doors in photographs and street view do not resemble the proposed doors and elevation.

    Further, whilst the DAS makes reference to local venacular informing the proposed garage doors it should be noted that the majority of garage doors on this mews are painted black not white. DM: 13 March 2017

    Objection: The new roof lights proposed in the rear roof slope, on the left hand side, are misaligned with the fenestration on the elevation below.

    No Objection: DM: 14 March 2017

    19-35 BAKER STREET

    16/11376/FULL/PP-05600748 Demolition of the existing buildings at 19-35 Baker Street, 88-110 George Street, 69-71 Blandford Street and redevelopment to create a mixed use scheme providing offices (Class B1), retail (Class A1 and flexible Class A1/A3 units) and up to 51 residential units (Class C3) within a new ground plus nine storey building (and an enclosed plant area) on Baker Street; a new stepped ground plus four to ground plus six storey building on George Street; refurbishment, extension and the change of use of the first floor from office to residential at 30 Gloucester Place; creation of a single storey basement level linking the Baker Street and George Street buildings to provide car and cycle parking, refuse and servicing; creation of a new central, publically accessible courtyard; removal of 5 trees and replacement trees across the site, a new publically accessible route at ground level connecting Baker Street and Gloucester Place; associated plant, landscaping, replacement pavements in part and other associated works. (Linked application 16/11377/LBC)

    No Objection: The Association welcomes the creation of new public space (albeit under private ownership) in the form of a new internal square and pedestrian street creating new links. However, whilst the entrance into the heart of the development from Baker St is announced with large canopies over 3 open façade bays, there is some concern that the route through, with glazed automatic sliding doors and flanked by office receptions on either side, may not always appear open and inviting to all. In this respect, we would welcome some more detail with regards to the proposed automatic door to Building C from Baker St.

    Should the local authority be mindful to grant approval for the proposed development, The Association maintains that the potential impact of the scheme on neighbours amenity must be addressed, both during the construction phase and later, in occupation;

    •During construction; In order to mitigate, in so far as reasonably practicable, the adverse affects of construction on neighbouring properties, The Association recommends the provision of robust Construction Management and Site Waste Management Plans.

    •During occupation; The Association recommends the provision, by the applicant, of a detailed Operational Management Plan, setting out mix of retail uses, hours of operation etc.


    With regards to the retail tenants, The Association welcomes the applicant’s stated aim of curating a distinctive tenant roster beyond the usual suspects. In this respect we would seek a commitment and guarantees as to the proposed number/ ratio of independent operators.

    With regards to the scheme’s massing, it is felt that Building C is bordering on oversized, both in terms of height and depth. Further, we note that in setting out the new building lines for building C, the applicant has gained up to 1.1m, in some areas, beyond the adopted highway boundary and existing buildings facades. This seems excessive, particularly in light of the applicant’s inability to provide sufficient short term safe cycle parking on site with a shortfall of 66 spaces (only 32 spaces provided due to insufficient space). Perhaps with wider pavements (as existing) and a slightly reduced building depth, the scheme could be made compliant with London Plan guidelines regarding short stay cycle provision.

    Finally, we note the provision of less than 20% affordable housing (none of which is Social Rented or Affordable Rented) against Westminster’s requirement of 30%.

    No Objection: Whilst the Association appreciates that the proposal to upgrade plant is linked to medical use, due to the close proximity to residential accommodation we would urge the planning officer to seek assurances from the applicant that the noise assessment has been carried out according to best practice. Further, that the measures proposed, with regards to noise suppression from the plant, are adequate. Any uplift in noise from plant, above the current baseline, would be objected to by the Association. KG: 21 March 2017
