Wandsworth Borough Council

PLANNING (LISTED BUILDINGS & CONSERVATION AREAS) ACT 1990, SECTION 69

CONSERVATION AREA EXTENSIONS & AMENDMENTS

NOTICE IS GIVEN under the provisions of the above Act that Wandsworth Council, following public consultation, has made the following changes to three of its conservation areas as detailed below.

STREATHAM PARK CONSERVATION AREA

THE AREA OF LAND between Furzedown Road and Clairview Road (which extends from Thrale Road in the east, to infront of 36 Clairview Road in the west) forms part of the special architectural or historic interest of Streatham Park Conservation Area of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance the character or appearance. Streatham Park Conservation Area has therefore been extended to include this strip of land on 2nd March 2009.

The principal effects of this area being designated as a conservation area are as follows:

  • 1 The Council is under a duty to prepare proposals to ensure the preservation or enhancement of the area under section 71 of the Act;
  • 2 Consent must be obtained from the Council for the demolition of any building in the area under section 74 of the Act;
  • 3 Special publicity must be given to planning applications for development in the area and representations received taken into consideration in their determination, under section 67 of the Act;
  • 4 In carrying out any functions under the planning Acts, the Council and the Secretary of State are required to take into account the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of the area under section 72 of the Act;
  • 5 Six weeks’ notice must be given to the Council before works are carried out to any tree in the area, except for trees on Council owned land which are exempted, under sections 211 and 214 of the Town & Country Planning Act;
  • 6 The right to display certain types of illuminated adverts without consent is excluded under the Advertisement Regulations 1992, Schedule 3, Class 4A and 4B.
  • 7 Permitted development rights under the Town & Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2008 are reduced and the following are not permitted without planning permission:
    • a The right to enlarge, improve or alter a dwellinghouse is restricted: extensions must not extend beyond a side elevation nor be over one storey nor extend beyond the rear wall of the dwellinghouse (Class A);
    • b Cladding with stone, timber, plastic, tile or pebbledash (Class A);
    • c Roof extensions (Class B);
    • d Development in the dwellinghouse curtilage between a side wall and the boundary of the dwellinghouse (Class E);
    • e The installation of microwave antennae on a chimney, wall or roof slope which faces onto and is visible from a highway (Class H);
  • 8 An Article 4 direction may be made to withdraw other permitted development rights under the Order.

LANDFORD ROAD AND PUTNEY LOWER COMMON CONSERVATION AREAS

NOS. 16-20 EGLISTON ROAD have been removed from Putney Lower Common Conservation Area, as they are considered to form part of the special architectural or historic interest of Landford Road Conservation Area, the character of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance, and are now therefore part of Landford Road Conservation Area instead. This change was made by the Council on 2nd March 2009.

As these houses were in a conservation area before and up to this date, there is no alteration to rights or requirements arising from this boundary change. The principle effects of conservation area status continue as before and for the avoidance of doubt, are as recited above for the Streatham Park Conservation Area.
