We're no longer publishing detailed reports on planning applications, but will continue to publish any objections we make to planning applications, which are based on planning and conservation guidelines, and planning and enforcement news.
This from Joseph McDonald of the Islington Planning Enforcement Team, regarding unauthorised replacement of wooden sash windows with uPVC:
“This afternoon I undertook my initial site visit, to take photographs of the unauthorised windows to the ground and first floor of 19 Miranda Road, and to view the neighbouring ‘paired’ property so as to check the style of the original windows. Following my site visit, I have compiled an initial warning letter to the owner, and those with an interest in the property. This warning letter will be sent out in Monday’s post (due to the Town Hall collection times). I have set a 28 day deadline for compliance, to remove the unauthorised uPVC windows and reinstate the three over three timber sash windows, with one over one side lights to the ground floor window; this deadline will therefore be 3rd December 2018.”
23 Harberton Rd, N19. A large basement development on the north side of Harberton Road at the Archway Road end. The house is in multiple occupation, the owner wanting to add an extra flat by excavating below the house. There is no current basement apart from the coal hole. WHPARA objected on conservation and planning grounds. See our objection and the Council’s basement guidelines.
