Planning Committee Submission


Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council

Land adjacent to 76a Stanley Grove -2021/0988

The Battersea Society, as with previous applications for development on this site, objects strongly to this latest application. Attempting to squeeze two modern houses into a challenging site, such as this in a conservation area, requires a practical and sensitive approach, given the proximity of adjacent houses. That is not the approach of these proposals which, once again, are an overdevelopment of the site with little consideration for the impact on neighbours and the Park Town Estate conservation area more generally. 


The objections we made to the earlier applications (2015/6844 and 2016/4033) are still valid.


 There is little on how the two dwellings would operate alongside each other in such a confined space, especially with a substation taking up a major part of the street frontage and thus limiting access to the rear of the site. The proposals should be referred to the WCAAC for their consideration. 


We strongly recommend that the Planning Applications Committee refuse approval.
