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 historic 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.

    6 HALLAM STREET 18/00264/FULL/PP-06641973   Use of property as two flats (one 1-bed and one 2-bed). Alterations to the front elevation in the form of replacement garage and entrance doors, installation of timber cladding, installation of replacement windows. 

    Insufficient Information:   Holding Objection.  There is a lack of information provided within the application to ensure that the Association’s policies are being met. We ask that officers consider the residential offer being sought in this application in view of the Strategic Policies.

              TB:  7 March 2018


    54 NEW CAVENDISH STREET  18/01511/FULL/PP-06728677   Temporary use of the basement to third floors for medical purposes (Class D1) for a period of 15 years. 

    No Objection:         DM: 8 March 2018


    NORTHUMBERLAND HOUSE  155-157 GREAT PORTLAND STREET  18/01472/FULL/PP-06677549   Dual/alternative use of ground and basement floors of 155-157 Great Portland Street for either a showroom and ancillary offices (sui generis) or a mixed retail and beauty centre (sui generis). 

    No Objection:         DM: 8 March 2018


    107 HARLEY STREET  17/11198/FULL/PP-06611886   Demolition of the existing building to the rear of the main property and erection of a three storey replacement building. Installation of plant at rear first floor level of the new replacement building and at main roof level of 107 Harley Street with an associated enclosure. Internal alterations at all floor levels within 107 Harley Street. (Linked with 17/11199/LBC) 

    Insufficient Information:  The application information is lacking in clarity. Existing drawings are provided but without an indication of the extent of demolition – making it very difficult to determine the extent of proposed development in relation to the existing.

    It is clear that the new building at the rear is taller than the one it replaces, however the long section (DD) through the proposal is entirely missing height measurements on the new building, again making it difficult to determine the extent of height increase. No indication is given as to the proposed increase in massing on neighbouring amenity and whether this is impacted.         DM: 8 March 2018


    16 DEVONSHIRE PLACE  18/01317/FULL/PP-06741489  Use as six self-contained flats (Class C3) including demolition of existing rear extensions and erection of new extension over lower-ground and ground-floor, excavation of rear garden and vault at lower ground floor level. Installation of internal lift to serve second to fourth floors, internal alterations, replacement windows, alterations to facade, provision of rooftop plant and a condenser unit within an acoustic enclosure within the rear patio at lower ground floor level and condenser in front lightwell and landscaping. (Linked with 18/01318/LBC)       

    No Objection:         DM: 8 March 2018


    8-10 MOXON STREET 17/09132/FULL/PP-06449140  Use from (Class A1) butchers/delicatessen to a mixture of butchers shop with butchery classes (sui generis use) during the hours of 19:00 to 23:00 (Mondays to Saturdays) and 16:00 to 20:00 on Sundays. 

    Objection:  The Marylebone Association objects on grounds of impact to local amenity. Whilst the application only seeks to regularize a change of use from A1 to sui generis use class (allowing for butchery lessons) it has been brought to the Association’s attention that cooking also takes place during said butchery lessons, causing strong odours that are not dealt with appropriately via suitable extraction and filtration. Food and wine is also consumed on the premises during the butchery lessons, often outside of the area marked on the proposed plan an indeed often spilling out on to the street causing noise and nuisance to neighbours.       DM: 12 March 2018


    D BLOCK OSSINGTON BUILDINGS 18/01342/FULL/PP-06726657   Erection of rear ground floor extension to two ground floor flats including formation of new ground floor terrace and green roof.

    Insufficient information:  We note that whilst the application drawings include datum lines, these lack annotation of heights. The association recommends that these are added by the applicant for the avoidance of doubt. Height markers should show the heights of roofs and parapets of the proposed extension in relation to external finished floor levels and in relation to party walls.          DM: 26 March 2018


    FIRST FLOOR FLAT  131 HARLEY STREET  18/01492/FULL/PP-06721868  Internal alterations to first floor flat, replacement of front elevation windows and relocation of boiler flue on rear elevation (Linked to 18/01493/LBC) 

    No Objection:  Alterations to reinstate the original plan form of the building are welcomed as are replacement of the casement window to the front elevation.
    The use of 2 pane sash windows to match others in the same elevation would give a more harmonious appearance to the façade.       JH: 27 March 2018


    BASEMENT AND GROUND FLOOR  32-34 NEW CAVENDISH STREET  18/01665/FULL/PP-06779420  Erection of two storey rear extension at lower ground and ground floor level in order to provide additional retail (Class A1) floorspace. 

    No Objection:       JH: 27 March 2018

    9 DEVONSHIRE MEWS SOUTH 18/00173/FULL/PP-06597409   Demolition of existing building and erection of replacement dwellinghouse (Class C3) over ground, first and second floor levels with integral garage and roof terrace at rear second floor level.

    Comment:   The proposed front elevation is too ‘busy’ with a mixture of light brickwork, darker brickwork courses, render panels, oak lined window reveals and brickwork ‘shutter effect’ either side of the windows. Traditional mews houses are more utilitarian and use a simpler pallette of materials.

    The 1st floor windows are too small and ground floor fenestration too low in comparison to neighbouring buildings.

    A unified full width approach to the ground floor would better remember original uses as stabling/coach house.   WH:  13 February 2018


    67 HARLEY STREET 18/00220/FULL/PP-06652488   Deletion of Condition 7 of planning permission dated 20 December 2017 (RN: 17/09838/FULL) for, 'Insertion of a window in the side wall at ground floor level and replacing a door at the rear'; NAMELY in order to allow the use of the rear ground floor flat roof as a terrace. 

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018


    19 NEW QUEBEC STREET  18/00204/FULL/PP-06627633   Use of the ground floor and basement for a composite retail, restaurant and training purposes (Sui Generis), installation of a replacement awning and associated minor internal alterations. (Linked to 18/00205/LBC) 

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018


    1-2 WELBECK STREET  17/11372/FULL/PP-06628218   Use of sub-basement area, third, fourth and fifth floors of 1-2 Welbeck Street as dual / alternative use as office (Class B1) and/or medical use (Class D1), installation of a single storey storage, plant and cycle provision enclosure in the rear courtyard, and plant to the roof and to the rear elevation. 

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018


    7 BEVERSTON MEWS  18/00246/FULL/PP-06658071  Erection of a single storey mansard roof extension to provide addition residential accommodation in connection with the existing single family dwelling (Class C3).       

    Comment:  The provision of a mansard roof in principle is acceptable however, the extension of the proposed mansard beyond the adjoining perpendicular façade does not relate to the facade arrangement over the lower floors. The current roof turns the corner however the proposed roof runs on beyond the perpendicular parapet wall, and comes to an abrupt stop providing an uncomfortable junction with the existing roof. Consideration could be given to pulling the mansard back to the perpendicular parapet wall on the front elevation only to relate to the lower floors of the property.   VS: 22 February 2018


    105 GREAT PORTLAND STREET 18/00302/FULL/PP-06667955  Use of the ground and basement floors as educational premises (Class D1) for a period to 31st December 2032.

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018



    334-348 OXFORD STREET  18/00156/FULL/PP-06643357   External alterations to form new entrance area to ground floor restaurant. Linked to 18/00157/ADV 

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018


    33 SEYMOUR PLACE  17/11358/FULL/PP-06250111  Re-design of existing railings, incorporating bullet-resistent glass and hostile vehicle mitigation bollards. (linked with 17/11359/LBC)

    No Objection:    VS: 22 February 2018

    Please find below responses to planning applications by the Marylebone Association Planning sub-committee. Any comments should be referred to Neil Wilson. neil.wilson@marylebone.org

    85 MARYLEBONE HIGH STREET 17/10831/FULL/PP-06571349  Erection of a mansard roof extension to create a new two bedroom maisonette at third and fourth floor level. 

    Declaration of Interest - The Association would like it noted that a member of their planning panel has links with this application.
    This member has not been involved in making the submission below.

    Comment:   The principle of development and the proposed design are acceptable. Further consideration should be given to the impact on daylight and sunlight amenity to properties at 83 and 84 Marylebone High St.            DM:  3 January 2018


    50 WEYMOUTH STREET 17/10719/FULL/PP-06556621   Erection of a mansard roof extension at rear second floor level to the Beaumont Mews elevation of the building to create 3 no. self contained units (Class C3) in connection with infilling the lightwell to the rear at ground and first floor level for residential use (Class C3). 

    No Objection:     DM:  3 January 2018


    62-64 BAKER STREET  17/10950/FULL/PP-06598309   Use of ground floor and basement as mix use retail (Class A1) and leisure (Class D2). Installation of new shopfront. 

    Comment:  Although the proposed loss of Class A1 retail would fail to comply with policy the proposals do seek to retain the active frontage and the Planning Statement and Marketing Report demonstrate the difficulty of attracting tenants for an A1 use.

    There is some contradiction within the documentation as to whether the applicant seeks approval for detailed design of the shopfront, signage, or use of the highway for external seating.

    Providing that sound insulation, the retention of retail space, and the external seating are secured by condition, in the context of a reduction in demand for retail space in the area, we agree that the proposals offer a creative way to reactivate the street and would support the change of use.               JH:  8 January 2018


    82 HARLEY STREET  17/09880/FULL/PP-06511948   Internal alterations on the ground and second floors, and alterations to the basement flat to provide two flats. (Linked to 17/09881/LBC) 

    Comment:   We have concerns over amenity to the 2no. flats proposed at basement level. Both flats appear to have access to the covered space labelled Courtyard - 1. Whether this is to be a shared space or proposed for use by one unit it would cause privacy issues between the two flats. The ventilation strategy is unclear as windows appear to open into the covered space of Courtyard 1.

    Daylight/sunlight levels within the flats are likely to be poor due to the reduced dimensions of the courtyards and number of internal rooms.

    No key is provided on the plans to establish what areas are to be demolished though it is apparent that alterations to the listed building would be greater than those marked in red on the proposed. An itemised schedule of works and assessment of the heritage value of the existing fabric would clarify this, but it seems the proposed alterations would cause significant harm to the legibility of the original building and damage the significance of it as a heritage asset.                      JH:  8 January 2018


    14 HALLAM STREET  17/10857/FULL/PP-06591503  Dual/alternative use of the basement, ground, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors as either office (Use Class B1) or medical consulting rooms (Use Class D1). 

    No Objection:         JH:  8 January 2018


    13-15 PORTLAND PLACE 17/10815/FULL/PP-06533829  Use of the building for a temporary period of 20 years as a medical use (Use Class D1) personal to OM Tower LLP. 

    No Objection:                               JH:  8 January 2018


    8 RODMARTON STREET  17/09979/FULL/PP-06457666  Installation of replacement roof in natural slate with lead detailing and new roof light and installation of replacement windows.

NAMELY, to amend the approved drawing numbers to allow changes to interior layout, improve the entrance of 14 Sherlock Mews and revise the brickwork finish. Linked to 17/09604/LBC

    Comment:  Should the Council be minded to consent this application then the Association recommends colour samples are to be agreed.               VS: 11 December 2017


    37 MARYLEBONE HIGH STREET  17/09841/FULL/PP-06513427  Demolition of the existing roof to create a mansard roof extension and erection of rear extension at rear third and new fourth floor level to extend the existing residential unit at third floor level to provide a two bedroom flat at third and new fourth floor level.

    12 BINGHAM PLACE  17/09967/FULL/PP-06462012  Erection of a mansard roof extension to provide additional residential floorspace to the existing flat (Class C3) at first floor level, and associated works.

    Comment: Should the local authority be minded to grant permission the Association recommends this be subject to conditions to safeguard neighboring amenity with regards to noise. Namely:
    • That the applicant measure to ensure that soundproofing shall be provided to ensure that dwelling houses, flats and rooms for residential purposes sharing a party element with the premises to which this application relates shall receive appropriate sound insulation.
    • An operational management plan to include details as to how the noise impacts of the use will be mitigated.                   DM:  14 December 2017


    65 BLANDFORD STREET  17/09400/FULL/PP-06466407  Alterations to include new domestic lift to six storey building including air conditioning unit at roof level within loft. Linked to 17/09401/LBC 

    Objection: The Marylebone Association does not support comfort cooling to residential properties. The proposed ventilation grilles within the roof form (visible from neighboring buildings) are not in keeping with local character.             DM:  14 December 2017

    27 DORSET STREET 17/07121/FULL/PP-06445901  Conversion from two residential maisonettes to one single family dwelling and addition of closet wing and conservatory to rear facade including external and internal refurbishment and internal alterations, new sash windows to match existing and new 'Juliet balconies' to front first floor windows. (Linked to 17/09122/LBC) 

    Declaration of Interest - The Association would like it noted that a member of their planning panel has links with this application.

    This member has not been involved in making the submission below.
    Whilst the design of the canopy itself would be an improvement over the existing the extensive lighting would distract from views towards Marble Arch from Great Cumberland Place.
    Access steps have restricted headroom (which may not meet building regulations).
    Kitchen use will generate significant humidity which cannot be adequately ventilated.
    Floor of vault is being lowered by circa 700mm which will require underpinning to existing perimeter walls. Details required.           WH:  23 November 2017

    No Objection:   The proposed development aims to reinstate the listed building to its original use and layout and to provide a high quality family sized dwelling that will ensure the maintenance and future use of this historic building. It is therefore supported.

             JH:  13 November 2017


    14 SHERLOCK MEWS 17/09151/FULL/PP-0655532   Variation of Condition 1 of planning permission dated 23 June 2015 ( RN : 14/10743/FULL) for, 'Demolition of rear facade of Nos. 96-98 Baker Street and front and part rear facades of No. 14 Sherlock Mews, use of first to fourth floors of Nos. 96-98 Baker Street as eight residential flats (Class C3), amalgamation of flats at first and second floors of No. 14 Sherlock Mews into a maisonette (Class C3), erection of replacement shopfronts to Baker Street facade, erection of replacement rear facade to Nos. 96-98 Baker Street, erection of replacement front facade to No. 14 Sherlock Mews, alterations at roof level, and other associated external alterations'; NAMELY, to incorporate the retention of 5 no. windows and 1 no. door, the enlargement of an existing door and a new arrangement of the inner yard to allocate private amenity space and access to the 3-bedroom maisonette rendering it a double aspect unit. 

    Comment:  Although the retention of windows to the mews house and provision of external amenity space would improve daylighting and provide amenity space to the mews house the modest dimensions of the terrace and close proximity to flats 02 and 03 may result in a reduction of privacy and increased noise transfer between units. This would be clearer if the application included the 96-98 Baker Street flats in the drawings.           JH:  13 November 2017


    CUMBERLAND HOTEL  GREAT CUMBERLAND PLACE  17/09103/FULL/PP-06334881   External alterations including replacement of a canopy at the Great Cumberland Place entrance, the reinstatement of windows and insertion of windows along Great Cumberland Place facade, replacement of entrance at Bryanston Street and Great Cumberland Place, replacement of canopy at Bryanston Street and enclosure of existing entrance lobby area at Great Cumberland Place through the relocation of doors along the building line.

    Comment:   The Association notes the absence of a Daylight & Sunlight report in support of this application.

    12 MARYLEBONE MEWS   17/08882/FULL/PP- 06438364  Installation of a entrance door and replace the existing garage door with a window. Use of rear flat roof as second floor as a terrace.

    STONE HOUSE, 9 WEYMOUTH STREET, 11 WEYMOUTH STREET & 60A PORTLAND PLACE 17/05227/FULL/PP-06106553  

    Erection of a new single storey roof extension to create four residential units (Class C3) and associated plant. Creation of three new terraces at new fifth floor level. (Site includes 9-11A Weymouth Street and 60A Portland Place) (Part of a land use swap with 142-146 Harley Street).


    Objection:  

    The Marylebone Association notes the changes which have been made to the proposals and we can see that attempts have been made to improve the appearance of the proposed extension.  However, in our view, the revisions have not overcome the fundamental principal of our original objection and as a result we still have objections to the application.  in particular:

    ·       The additional roof storey is inappropriate in the context of the existing building and its neighbours. The original design of the street sought to have a variation in terms of the roofscape, which would be lost in these proposals.  It will appear bulky and monotonous in all the views where it will be seen, i.e. from all of the surrounding buildings. In addition to these numerous high-level views, there are also street-level views from both sides of Hallam Street and the junction of Weymouth Street and Great Portland Street, and in these views the roof will be appear bulky and overbearing.

    ·       The changes to the rear have sought to overcome the problems of having a sheet extension, but has resulted in a roof form which would appear alien and unsatisfactory.

    ·       The building is already amongst the taller and more imposing buildings in the area, and the additional height and bulk will make the building appear too tall for its context and somewhat overbearing. In bringing the same design of roof across all of the Weymouth Street properties, there is an attempt at homogenising this group of buildings which is to their detriment. This approach is fundamentally harmful to the character of the conservation area.

     

    In our view the revised proposal would have a harmful impact on the conservation area and we can see no public benefit which would make this harm necessary. The proposals are contrary to the NPPF (paragraph 134) and to DES6 and DES9 of the Council’s own policies.

    Use of basement as studio flat (Class C3) and alterations to side and rear basement level to install replacement window and railings. (Linked to 17/06924/LBC).


    Comments: 

    -    Westminster SPD on basement design indicates that the addition of railings must not harm the appearance of the building. It is understood that this building is listed as a pair, and should the council be minded to grant consent, consideration should be given to the change in appearance of only one of these buildings. 

    -    A large area of what appears to be historic wall is to be removed within the proposals however the heritage statement does not detail why this is necessary.

    Objection: This 'temporary' permission has persisted for 4 years through the recurring variation of this planning condition. The permission should now be on a permanent basis or not consented at all.                          WH: 24 September 2017

    Erection of a conservatory at rear first floor level, associated internal and external alterations. (Linked to 17/08372/LBC) 


    Comment: The only issue we see to highlight here is the relationship between the new layout and the chimney breasts on second and third floors.

    In both cases, although not ideal, we think that an appropriate balance has been struck between the needs of any modern home, the practical requirements of drainage, and the integrity of the heritage in this house.

    Regarding the second floor in particular we would suggest that detailed drawings are required as a condition to show that the bathroom partitioning has a minimal effect on the adjacent fabric.

    NORTH WEST HOUSE 119-127 MARYLEBONE ROAD

    17/05218/FULL/PP-06043175 Demolition of the existing building and erection of a replacement building comprising basement, lower ground, ground, plus nine storeys for use as offices (Class B1) at lower ground, part ground and first to ninth floors and ancillary flexible Class A1/A2/B1 use at part ground floor; associated plant at basement levels and roof level; associated hard and soft landscaping.

    Objection: The Marylebone Association Objects to the proposal on a number of grounds:

    1. Height, Scale and Mass: The building is considered too high and out of scale with its immediate and wider context. The additional height proposed would have a significant detrimental impact both on neighbouring properties in Knox Street and Upper Montagu Street and on the wider Portman Estate Conservation Area. The proposals should be revised to significantly reduce the height of the scheme.

    2. Design Quality: The proposals are considered inadequate in terms of design quality and would harm the Portman Estate Conservation Area and the setting of local listed buildings. The existing building has many qualities and features, as highlighted in the Twentieth Century Society's objection, and in our view the quality of the current proposal does not justify its demolition. The Marylebone Association welcomes exemplary contemporary architecture and the proposals fall far short of this standard, both in the quality of the elevations and the level of detail and information provided. The architectural expression is without sufficient distinction and is not deemed to complement the local character of the area.

    3. Impact on adjoining properties on Knox Street and Upper Montagu street. The overbearing nature of the proposed scheme would have a significant detrimental impact on neighbouring properties to the South and would harm the outlook and significantly increase the sense of enclosure from these properties. This is a direct result of the scale and bulk of the proposals. There would also be a harmful increase in overlooking from the rear of the proposal over the residential properties to the South.

    4. Proposed entrances:
    The building fronts the Marylebone Road and the existing building main entrances are from Marylebone Road. The Association is concerned that the proposed entrances onto Upper Montagu Street and Knox Street will have a significant increase in foot traffic and a detrimental impact on the quiet enjoyment of nearby residential properties.

    5. Ground floor uses: There is concern over the proposed ground floor uses impact onto the quiet enjoyment of residential properties on Upper Montagu and Knox street.

    6. There is significant local concern over the impact of servicing and the controls to avoid detrimental impact on neighbouring properties and traffic, especially on Knox Street.

    7. There is significant local concern over the impact of construction on local traffic and the quiet enjoyment of neighbouring properties in the redevelopment. We request that the Association is consulted in the event of a consent in the development of the CMP prior to the discharging of any associated condition.

    8. In summary we have sufficient concerns with the proposed application that we believe it should be refused. We would welcome a dialogue with the applicants in the development of any revised proposals. LT: 11 August 2017

    25-26 ENFORD STREET

    17/05941/FULL/PP-06202356 Erection of extension at rear first floor level, alterations to front and rear facades of building and alteration to rear roof form to create sheer rear elevation, use of extended and altered building as 3 x flats (Class C3) and installation of mansard-style screen measuring 1.7m to rear elevation and installation of balustrade to front elevation in order to facilitate use of flat roof at fourth floor level and terrace
    Objection: The faux mansard performing as screen to the roof terrace results in an increase in perceived building height that is not in keeping with the neighbouring roof lines at the rear of the property. A simple acoustic screen and railing set back 1.5 metres from the rear parapet would safeguard neighbouring amenity and address issues of visual bulk. DM: 14 August 2017

    17/06076/FULL/PP-06217200 Installation of double glazed, bi-folding doors and air conditioning unit at sixth floor level.
    Objection: The Marylebone Association does not support comfort cooling to residential properties. The proposed AC unit is not integrated within a holistic architectural proposal and no design/materials are described for the required acoustic box.
    Further, the proposed bi-folding doors are out of context within the larger elevation of the building and would harm the overall composition. DM: 22 August 2017

    DEV SITE  19-35 BAKER STREET, 88-110 GEORGE STREET, 69-71 BLANDFORD STREET AND 30 GLOUCESTER PLACE

    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) (Revised scheme i. Stepping back at level 8 and above to Baker Street building. ii. Details of buidling line of Baker Street building. iii. Details of servicing arrangements. iv. Details of distribution of Class A1 and A3 uses within the scheme)

    Comment: 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.

    Whilst we acknowledge that efforts have been made to reduce the height, it is felt that Building C’s height and massing is still bordering on oversized both in terms of height and depth.

    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%. DM: 31 August 2017

    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.

Conflicts Statement

We are fortunate that Marylebone Association Planning Sub-Committee consist of eight local active professional Architects/Town planners.  However, from time to time conflicts of interests do arise.  Where this it the case the Association's comments feature a  "declaration of interest":  The Association would like it noted that a member of their planning panel has links with this application. This member has not been involved in making the submission.  Where an application is considered significant for Marylebone, the Association's response is agreed by the main committee.
