Demolition of nine garage units at the rear of Walpole Lodge and the construction of two two bedroom mews bungalows with roof terraces. At first glance looks a decided improvement, but possibly the thin edge of a worrying wedge.
Planning & Development
At last a new use for the old betting shop that has been lying idle for ages; the applicants look to be changing it to an Italian Ice Cream Parlour, which will be sandwiched (pardon the pun) between Cote and Carluccios. There will be changes to the shop front and new advertising signs.
Amazingly, this is the fifth in a series of recent planning applications of which two were refused - a typical example of 'salami slicing'. The latest application is to convert the house into four flats with three rooflights in the front roof. Too much.
This application, is summarised as "conversion and extension of existing semi-detached dwelling including new basement level creating four no. (sic) flats". We consider this to be severe overdevelopment.
