Fuller Long have secured retrospective planning permission and listed building consent for works to a Grade II listed building in Paddington.
Minor alterations had been undertaken to the layout of the 1st floor flat in this substantial mid 19th century house, including the replacement of a non original window in the rear elevation with double glazing.
Fuller Long Heritage Consultant Hannah Walker successfully argued in her supporting Heritage Statement that the works to the internal partitions had caused no harm to the internal appearance and spatial quality of the listed building. Furthermore, in this case Westminster City Council accepted the installation of a double glazed window after we demonstrated that this would not detract from the external appearance of the listed building, given its immediate context and the quality and character of the window that had been replaced.
Fuller Long were able to ensure that the proposals were fully justified to the satisfaction of the Council, showing how the special architectural and historic interest of the listed building would be preserved, and indeed enhanced. The application was concluded quickly and smoothly, with a positive outcome for the client.
