HWA planning round-up, May 2019

HWA planning round-up, May 2019

There have been 29 applications since 6th March 2019 in Hampton Wick. Notable applications include:

Wick House 10 Station Road

Proposed construction of additional floor level to create 2 no. additional two bed flats, together with a three-storey side extension in the form of a bay window, change to existing fenestration and addition of 8 no. balconies at first and second floor level and associated hard and soft landscaping, 2 no. parking, refuse and cycle stores.

There’s already a consent for an additional floor with two flats. These proposals essentially are to add a projecting bay to the west elevation serving two flats per floor, to add balconies (with glass fronts) and tidy up the windows, using more contemporary style ones. This building is alongside Orione House.

Fairlight 4 Church Grove

Two-storey side/rear extension with accommodation in the roof, removal of external staircase to facilitate the conversion of existing dwellinghouse into 7 self-contained flats (4 × 1 bed and 3 × 2 bed) and associated cycle and refuse stores.

Scheduled as a building of Townscape Merit. The proposals are respectful of this in terms of the way the elevations are handled.
Our principle concern (again) relates to parking as only two spaces are proposed for 7 flats. Bear in mind the revised Application for the nearby Firs tries to do away with the parking in their Approved scheme, save one disabled space. One reason we objected to the scheme.

It states in the Application: “The applicant is prepared to enter into a unilateral undertaking confirming the scheme as proposed offers no further parking on site. The current provision of two spaces would be retained and used. The undertaking would include a limitation on future owners / tenants applying for street parking permits.

In design terms, had additional parking been provided, it would have been located at the front of the site. The rear car park is under different ownership so cannot be relied on for access or use. Additional parking at the front of the property would greatly diminish the quality of the front garden and by implication the street scene and would have had an adverse impact on the residents of the basement flats.”

HWA to object on grounds of inadequate parking.

Previous Applications, update;

12 To 14 Station Road and 13 And 19 To 33 Lower Teddington Road (Orione House)

Independent senior living extra care building comprising of 28 units (following demolition of existing care home)

Revised drawings have been submitted 7th March 19. “Roof form adjusted on the south elevation facing Seymour Lodge. Balcony facing Seymour Lodge set further away” AND (23rd April) “Plan indicating relationship with Seymour Lodge added”.

This appears to be responding to objections from Seymour Lodge. Orione house is still just about double the volume of the existing, however.

HWA to maintain its objection on the basis of size and intrusion to neighbours.
