Office block impact on conservation area acceptable

A four-storey office block occupying land within a southwest London conservation area would not be out of character with the locality, an inspector concluded, also ruling that the impact on local residents would be acceptable.

There was already a number of large buildings in the locality some of which were higher than that proposed. The proposal would not give rise to an excessive or visually intrusive structure, the inspector held, while preserving the setting of a grade II listed building. Views of the building from adjacent houses, while being affected by its construction, would not be uncharacteristic of the area, which exhibited a close-knit urban form. It would not appear so obtrusive as to result in unacceptable living conditions.
