Planning approval granted for a substantial side extension and full width rear extension to a detached family residence in Wanstead Grove Conservation Area
Planning approval has been granted for the side & full width, rear extension of a detached family residence within a conservation area by Redbridge Council. The consent includes the demolition of existing outbuildings on the site, as well as alterations to fenestration on the upper levels and the removal of a chimney.
A comprehensive pre-application to the council early in the design process facilitated an early dialogue with the planners. This enabled Alex Tart Architects to directly address the conservation officer’s concerns and pave the way for the scheme to be approved in full during the formal planning application.
The new contemporary glazed extension enables a new and expansive kitchen and dining area to be fully connected to the property’s large garden, where a new terrace is proposed for alfresco living. The side extension creates a home gym, boot room and utility room, allowing the dining room, sitting room and study to be located in the retained traditionally proportioned spaces within the house.
