External and internal alterations to include replacement of two-storey extension with single storey orangery, landscaping works, repositioning the garage, a new rooflight to the swimming pool building and alterations to the interior of the house including conversion of the basement into a separate flat.
In the existing and proposed elevations, there appears to be some change to the south elevation that is not elaborated on within the D&A Statement. The existing ground floor south elevation windows are six-over-nine timber sashes with margin lights, a distinctive style that matches those present on the north elevation. These appear to be replaced with more standardised six-over-nine timber sashes in the proposed south elevation. No mention is made of their potential replacement and no joinery details have been submitted.
In its current form, this application provides insufficient information on which to make a fully informed decision with regards to the proposal’s impact on the special historic and architectural interest of a listed building. Therefore, we suggest that the proposed nature of works is clarified. Should works include the replacement of the south-facing windows, we encourage the case officer to ask for further information relating to the windows’ age, condition, and existing joinery details.
