The reporter observed that about 40 per cent of flats in the street featured replacement windows of varying materials and proportions with different colours and opening methods. She acknowledged that one side of the street was outside the conservation area and observed that alterations to the flats there contributed to the overall impression that a high proportion of properties had lost their original windows.
She accepted that replacing the windows on the appellant's flat with ones that replicated the originals would make little difference to the conservation area's character. She agreed with his assertion that it would be unfair on him if he had to replace his windows and others in the locality did not.
