Optimis wins appeal for basement rear extension in Kensington & Chelsea

Optimis is delighted to have won an appeal for their client following refusal of planning permission for a small- scale semi-basement rear extension with external glass link.

Optimis successfully submitted an appeal following the refusal by the Council of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  The main issue was whether the proposed development would preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the Lexham Gardens Conservation Area. 

Optimis successfully argued that the extension would be barely visible and that the character and appearance of the Conservation Area would be preserved.  In addition, the Inspector agreed that the development would appear proportionate and sympathetic to the appeal building without resulting in the loss of any significant features of historic or architectural merit, whilst barely being visible from neighbouring rear gardens or any public vantage points.
