Proposal

Rebuilding a collapsed section of the retaining wall in the rear garden forming the boundary between number 4 and number 3.

Our Response

We are supportive of the principle of necessary reconstruction works to reinstate a historic boundary wall, which appears to form part of the curtilage Grade II listing of 4 Cambridge Place. It is recommended that a methodology is included that details the proposed scope of repairs and means of reconstruction, particularly where the wall has already been demonstrated to be under stress from the lateral loading of the retained earth, and to ensure that the wall is of an appropriate material finish in keeping with the wider character and setting of a listed building.
