External alterations to make a like-for-like replacement of existing timber staircase at the front of building.
Our Response Given that an LBA has been submitted and that therefore this is not an entirely like-for-like repair, it is a shame that the applicant has not looked to replace the wooden staircase with a more traditional metal staircase to match the railings, staircases and ironwork already seen in the street and the surrounding streetscapes. This would ensure the longevity of the structure (beyond the life span of a wooden structure) and be more appropriate in the WHS.
