Windward and Leeward Buildings 2014/6629
The Battersea Society objects to these proposals for box-like additions to the roof of a group of buildings which, whatever one might think of their design, have a quirky integrity and have become part of the streetscape of this part of Battersea.
The picture of the existing buildings on page 18 of the Design and Access statement and the section shown on page 69 support our view.
The proposals do not add a sympathetic or stylish element to the buildings and appear to be designed solely to provide 6 small flats.
These proposals appear to us to be an over-development of the site. We believe that there is existing permission for change of use of ground floor offices to residential and we would have hoped that this might have been sufficient for the owners.
