Planning permission is being sought for the elevational changes and associated plan amendments to the proposed development previously approved under P.03/403, including the revised layout of the fourth floor and all associated siteworks. This application includes for the retention of the demolition of the existing stone wall along the rear laneway of Hartstonge Mews and the proposed reconstruction of same using the salvage stone.
This seems to be an infill development.
I’ve no problems with a contemporary design appearing here, just not happy the window proportions to those of the neighbouring buildings.
Here an account of No 8 (NIAH)
According to the planning records, permission was granted for the original appplication (03403) on 30/03/2004, while the current application was submitted on 24/04/2009.
I was under the impression that planning permission expires after 5 years if it has not been acted upon? If this is the case, should the applicant not have to re-apply for permission or at least apply for retention? All that they seem to be proposing here are merely modifications to the original plans!:confused:
As for the proposal itself. The window arrangement is indeed a disaster, why cant they just respect the window line of the adjacent buildings?
Also that central glazed area looks like it contains a fair amount of pvc panelling?:rolleyes:
