Townscape: Chartered Town Planner and Heritage Consultant advised the property owner to the potential for demolition of 4 bed family home central to the Ickenham Conservation Area and replacement with 7 2bed apartments.
Through protracted discussions with Hillingdon Council the planning application was refused and a subsequent appeal lodged.
Townscape, through our submitted planning appeal and detailed statement of case successfully argued that the existing building was of such low significance due to its history, construction and appearance that the building was a negative feature which contributed little to the character of the conservation area. The replacement development was designed to provide a more character based scheme and its appearance was more in keeping with the prevailing architectural appearance of the conservation area.
The appeal inspector found the proposed development to contribute positively to the conservation area and allowed the appeal and awarded full planning permission. The development is now on site providing high quality apartment units in Ickenham.
