Planning controls

Good to see that the Planning Service continues to judge some proposals for converting houses into flats as unacceptable. In a number of instances, policies H17 and H19 are cited as reasons:

"The proposal is unacceptable in principle in that it results in the loss of a family dwellinghouse, for which there is a recognised need in Brent, without the replacement of a family sized unit. By reason of the limited original floor area of the building and its location on a heavily parked street, the dwelling house is insufficient in size to be considered for conversion and would increase the demand for on-street parking, to the detriment of the free and safe flow of traffic."
