External works for the creation of new parking bay for 1 No. vehicle opposite No. 10 Highbury Place within the existing divorced garden.
Our Response

10 Highbury Place forms part of a Grade II early 19th century residential terrace, situated within the Bath conservation area and World Heritage Site. The terrace forms a stepped, three storey elevation from north to south with arched door and window reveals across the ground floor but otherwise varied fenestration treatments, with some examples of painted blind windows. The proposed site of development is located in 10 Highbury Place’s adjacent garden which runs in a long, narrow strip to the east in the same fashion as adjacent gardens; these appear to be contemporaneous to the development of the terrace, but with the defined garden at 10 Highbury Place appearing a little later by the late 19th century. A number of gardens have had space made for off-street parking, but the boundary treatment remains predominantly of Bath stone ashlar.

We note the use of buff brick as incongruous within this area, and query whether the proposed rear wall could be constructed from the Bath stone proposed for removal as part of the proposed demolition works.
