Kings Avenue, London

Small Scale and Permitted Development

Firstplan secured Prior Approved under Part 20 Class A of the amended Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2020 for the construction of an additional storey in the airspace above an existing block of flats in Thornton to create two new residential units.

Designed by Lipton Plant Architects, the materiality, form and fenestration of the roof addition mirrors that of the floor below to provide a sympathetic and appropriate extension which relates well to both the host building and the character of the wider area.  The two newly created dual aspect flats provide light, open-plan living accommodation and make more efficient use of the site. Our application successfully demonstrated that the proposals are acceptable in respect of all Prior Approval matters including external appearance, natural light, flood risk, amenity and transport.
