Marloes Road

We acted on behalf for our client and prepared a detailed planning application for a small-scale semi-basement rear extension with external glass link.

Following the refusal of planning permission by the Council of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Optimis successfully submitted an appeal. The main issue was whether the proposed development would preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the Lexham Gardens Conservation Area.

Optimis successfully argued that the extension would be barely visible and that the character and appearance of the Conservation Area would be preserved. In addition, the Inspector agreed that the development would appear proportionate and sympathetic to the appeal building without resulting in the loss of any significant features of historic or architectural neighbouring rear gardens or any public vantage points.
