Non designated heritage asset loss rejected in aparthotel plan

The importance of non-designated heritage assets in south west London were considered sufficient to prevent their demolition in order to facilitate the erection of an aparthotel.

The existing site contained some of the earliest buildings remaining in the immediate area, the inspector decided, although some had been significantly altered. Due to their age, status and visibility in public views they had a positive impact on the character of the area and harm would result from their loss. The scale, set back and width of the proposed building would give it a bulky appearance which would not be capable of being resolved at the detailed design stage. The impact on the outlook of existing residents was, however, judged to be acceptable.
