Planning Committee Submission


Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council
Added on: 23 February 2018 at 10:40:10

Telephone Kiosk north of Harris Academy: 2018/0315

Note:  There are 8 applications in Battersea and many more throughout Wandsworth.  This is typical of the objection we have sent to each


The Battersea Society objects strongly to this application.  The site is on a busy stretch of pavement close to Harris Academy and possibly to a newly installed vehicle charging point also obstructing the pavement. 


It is also close to the site outside Travis Perkins, the subject of application 2018/0310  


There is no need or justification for what is, in effect, an advertising hoarding which would obstruct pedestrians and diminish the streetscape. 


We also object to the narrow focus of the illustration of the location site.  This does not allow for proper assessment of other structures existing or proposed adjacent to the site of this application, in particular as in this case, a school. 


The applicant, who has made at least 8 applications in Battersea, together with applications for other areas of Wandsworth, appears not to have presented a map of all the sites for which applications are being made within the London Borough of Wandsworth.
