The Battersea Society: Planning Application submission Welcome to the Battersea Society website


Planning Submission


Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council
Added on: 27 October 2016 at 13:35:05

90 York Mansions Prince of Wales Drive SW11 4BN: 2016/5818

The Battersea Society wish to strongly object to this revised application for a roof terrace on York Mansions within the Battersea Park Conservation Area. The points we made in our objection to the previous application ( 2016/4334)still stand. A copy of that objection is attached and should be read as part of this submission. We welcomed the officers recommendation that that application be refused, although the applicant withdrew the application before it finally went to Committee.


The minor adjustments in this revised application to the height  of the screens and set back do not over ride the primary objection that the proposal is inappropriate in the conservation area. In addition the drawings are still inadequate in that they provide no details of design materials or true scale of proposals.


 From the objections submitted it is clear that local residents, as well as those in the block itself, consider that the integrity of the mansion blocks in the Battersea Park Conservation area is paramount and should not be compromised by roof development of this type.


We therefore recommend that this revised application is refused
