Wandsworth (Conservation Area) Advisory Committee (12 March 2019) – part 2

Background

Following on from the Wandsworth (Conservation Area) Advisory Committee (WACC) on 12th March 2019 there are a few Roehampton & Putney Heath ward entries – https://democracy.wandsworth.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=493&MId=6071

There was an update on two local planning applications – https://democracy.wandsworth.gov.uk/mgAi.aspx?ID=46335

  1. 2018/4925: 228 Roehampton Lane, SW15 4LE

Demolition of existing car repair garage buildings and the erection of two four-storey buildings (connected by a lower ground floor car park and cycle store) containing 9 x 1 bedroom flats and 6 x 2-bedroom flats, with associated refuse storage and external amenity space, and alterations to the existing vehicular access. (Revised description)

Response from the WACC:

Objection –The Committee objected to the proposal in its current form. The Committee considered that there was insufficient information in relation to this application; specifically, in relation to the description, appearance, elevations, and the context of the building. It was added that this was especially important because the site was located in a conservation area. The Committee considered that there was a risk of overdevelopment of the site, that the proposed building was large, and that a detailed understanding of the context was required in order to consider the impact of the proposal. The Committee felt that it was unable to properly assess the application without further information.

  1. 2018/5671: 66 Alton Road, SW15 4NJ

Alterations including erection of part two-storey, part three-storey replacement side and rear extensions in connection with creation of 5 x 1-bedroom and 4 x 2-bedroom flats with associated access, parking and landscaping.

Response from the WACC:

Objection –The Committee objected to the proposal in its current form. The Committee noted that the existing building was locally listed and was a rare, surviving building. The Committee considered that it was important to preserve this unique building and to leave the high quality frontage intact. The Committee felt that the large, rectangular blocks that were proposed were out of sympathy with the building and would ruin the appearance of the building from the front.

The Committee stated that it did not object to the idea of extending the existing building. It was noted that adjoining properties had been extended to the rear and that this may be a more appropriate method of extending the existing building. It was considered that this would align better with the context of the area and would be more sympathetic to the importance and character of the building. The Committee also considered that the large quantity of glass proposed should be reduced and that a more solid building would be more in keeping with the existing building.

Parking on grass – an Alton East problem?

Background

Have you noticed how many cars park on the grass on the Alton East? Or driving on the grass? It’s possibly because with all of these buildings being built that car parking pressures over time have built up leaving car owners little option?

The following are examples of areas in the Alton East.

Somborne House

Fontley Way area is already under some pressure with car parking. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’51.3%22N+0%C2%B014’35.8%22W/@51.4475833,-0.244512,313m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.447591!4d-0.243285

Crondall House

Also in the Fontley Way area though the pressures built up have cars parked on the grass where the entrance to the proposed new maisonettes will have access. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’50.3%22N+0%C2%B014’38.9%22W/@51.447304,-0.2453728,314m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m15!1m8!3m7!1s0x0:0x0!2zNTHCsDI2JzUxLjMiTiAwwrAxNCczNS44Ilc!3b1!7e2!8m2!3d51.447591!4d-0.243285!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4473039!4d-0.2441334

Farnborough House

This too is in Fontley Way and until recently had many cars parked on the grass until the railings were recently installed – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2019/03/21/2878/ . This photo is located at and is after the railings were installed – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’49.0%22N+0%C2%B014’35.1%22W/@51.446956,-0.2438084,187m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4469555!4d-0.2430712

Fontley Way 1-20

At one of the two entrances to Fontley Way, this area is used for car parking. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’47.0%22N+0%C2%B014’35.5%22W/@51.446394,-0.2437412,139m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4463939!4d-0.2431939

Ibsley Gardens 57-79

At the back of Ibsley Gardens and also leading to Fontley Way 1-20 entrance this road is car parked on one side with cars and large vehicles using the grass as an extension of the road. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’46.5%22N+0%C2%B014’32.9%22W/@51.446247,-0.2430263,139m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4462471!4d-0.2424761

Ibsley Gardens 2-52

At the bend leading towards the other Fontley Way entrance this grassed area is also used as an extension of the road. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’49.2%22N+0%C2%B014’29.9%22W/@51.447008,-0.2424106,195m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4470076!4d-0.2416399

Holybourne Avenue

In front of Whitelands College this Avenue is split into four footpaths due to the intersection at Bordon Walk. Three of the four have pavements next to the Avenue and one does not. This area is frequently driven on having mud stretched across the Avenue and tyre marks in the grass, all this in the Alton Conversation area. This photo is located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’55.7%22N+0%C2%B014’28.6%22W/@51.448795,-0.2420333,194m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4487949!4d-0.241266

(vi) Mount Clare Campus, Minstead Gardens (2018/4390)

The Principal Conservation and Urban Design Officer provided an update in relation to the cedar tree on the site that was discussed at the last meeting. He noted that he had contacted the University’s Director of Estates in 2015 about the decaying tree and that he could not find any evidence of a response. He explained that the tree was protected by a Tree Preservation Order but that it was now just a tree stump. The Principal Conservation and Urban Design Officer informed the Committee that he would discuss the replacement of the tree with the University. It was confirmed that the Principal Conservation and Urban Design Officer would contact Gilly King and/or the Director of Estates to discuss the tree replacement.

John Horrocks, Putney Society, noted that the Alton Estate regeneration planning application was scheduled to be submitted at the end of January 2019.

The end of Mayday Motors?

What’s happening?

A planning application (2018/4925)  has been submitted which, if approved, would permit 15 residential units to be built on the current Mayday Motors site (228 Roehampton Lane, SW15 4LE). This article is to provide readers with some background information along with some current views of the area.

This is located at – https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Mayday+Motors,+228+Roehampton+Ln,+London+SW15+4LE/@51.4488834,-0.240473,277m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x48760ede7d453ff1:0x5e5a33145cd21c6a!8m2!3d51.4488801!4d-0.2393785

The proposal?

“Proposal: Proposed resubmission of pre-approved (expired) application 2008/2880 & 2011/1376 for a new 4-storey building compromising of 15 residential units. (9 as approved + 6 additional) with basement parking” as sourced from – https://planning.wandsworth.gov.uk/WAM/doc/Report-5098469.pdf?extension=.pdf&id=5098469&location=VOLUME9&contentType=application/pdf&pageCount=1

From the document source mentioned above the high level information is summarised as follows;

Is there more information?

You can have a read of the various documents at the following link – https://planning1.wandsworth.gov.uk/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/Generic/StdDetails.aspx?PT=Planning%20Applications%20On-Line&TYPE=PL/PlanningPK.xml&PARAM0=952518&XSLT=/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/SiteFiles/Skins/Wandsworth/xslt/PL/PLDetails.xslt&FT=Planning%20Application%20Details&PUBLIC=Y&XMLSIDE=/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/SiteFiles/Skins/Wandsworth/Menus/PL.xml&DAURI=PLANNING

What does the area look like?

The following are photos from various angles as to what the area currently looks like.

The entrance from Roehampton Lane.

Above the garages Shawford Court 11-32 can be seen, and one wonder what their views will become. To the right is Egleton House and those with balconies facing onto Mayday Motors might have their views impeded.

At the top of the road leading to the garages, to the let is Trinity Court, Hersham Close, managed Optiva Housing Association.

At the top of the road leading to the garages, to the right are more garages, and to far right is Egleton House.

The following view is taken from the ground floor entrance of Shawford Court 11-32.

The following view is taken from the communal walkway of Shawford Court 11-32 and the view would seem to be at risk from the proposed development.
