25A Mowbray Road

What do they want to do?
Significantly extend and convert a detached house upwards and outwards to form 7 ‘residential units’. There is far less information given than is usual with applications like this – not much more than the basic floorplans and elevations.

Not since its construction, in 1993.

What does the site look like at the moment?

  1. I would encourage people to think about the impact of parking 6 cars across the frontage of the building, and to look at the arrangements for bike access/bin storage at the rear. And then we can move on to discussing the finer points of the aesthetics …

    1. It will look like the starting grid at a Formula One race. From a practical point of view, are the owners expected to drive their cars down the pavement to reach the road, or will there be an application to remove the tree and the verge?

  2. There are currently FOUR applications in Queen Edith’s ward to replace family homes with one and two bed units. The Queen Edith’s councillors (maybe all councillors?) seem unwilling to make any waves, and are certainly uninterested in taking a cold hard look at what is happening – just about everywhere in this city. We residents are left to battle each application (assuming we become aware of them in time). It is very, very depressing, and feels impossible.

    1. I got so confused by them all (more tomorrow, by the way) that in my comment on the council website regarding this one, I mistakenly referred to it as being in Queen Edith’s Way. It is hard to keep up.

  3. Objecting to, and preventing the building of, are two very different issues – the first is easy, the second often impossible given the current planning regulations. Parking will be an issue – Mowbray Road has a byelaw prohibiting parking on the verge.

  4. Should this application be approved the house will become an HMO (house of multiple occupation) and therefore require far stricter safety rules. These come under a different part of the City Council – not within planning – and will require prompting once the building becomes occupied – their Council Tax will take a massive hike too.
