PLANNING  

174-178 Twickenham Road replacement of existing northern boundary wall with railings/hedge and a pedestrian gate to provide access to Byfield Road relating to approved build of retirement apartments.  Original application identified 3 boundary walls as retained. This application states “existing” wall, but one and part of another has been demolished. TIS objected requesting re-build in original style with salvaged bricks. Some of the wall pre-dates Middlesex Enclosure Act 1797-1820; the gate would intrude on a Byfield Road driveway. Officers are recommending refusal.

Land to Rear Castle P.H. Upper Square erection of 3 storey building to provide 6 residential units.  TIS has objected on grounds of insufficient information provided, over-development of a small site, inadequate outlook and provision for collection of waste and recycling, also hazardous pedestrian access.

Gumley House Convent (Grade 11* listed) replacement and re-positioning of door/gate thus removing a recessed archway.  Following officer approval recommendation, TIS had a site meeting with officers. If an alternative solution to proposals for this entrance is not found, it will go to Planning Committee for determination.

146a St John’s Road construction of hard standing to the front of the premises for off-street parking.  Refused by LBofH.

Former Acton Lodge, 84 London Road redevelopment to provide 19 houses, 2, 3 and 4 storeys with associated parking/cycle spaces, hard and soft landscaping.  In progress.


ENFORCEMENT

Thanet House (Grade ll Listed) Twickenham Road LBofH await details of window types/door to enable approval of what the owner proposes by end June, and then to agree a completion timescale.

262 Twickenham Road former Post Office insertion of only one small window and PVC door both contrary to conditions of change of use to accommodation. An enforcement notice prompted a retrospective application to retain this work.  TIS has objected in light of the unwelcome detrimental impact on the neighbourhood.
