This application (20/06427/FULL) involves the erection of roof extension at fifth floor level in connection with the existing fifth floor flat and an increase in height to the lift shaft and roof height on the Bolsover Street elevation, installation of replacement windows, glazing at basement level on the Bolsover Street elevation, an additional doorway on the Bolsover Street elevation and railings, alterations to the shopfront and signage on the Great Portland Street elevation, partial re-opening of the lightwells at basement level on the Bolsover Street elevation, removal of rooflight at the rear of the ground floor/basement flat within existing lightwell and installation of air conditioning units within an acoustic screen at roof level.

This has raised concerns of local residents about the design, overlooking and waste disposal arrangements and noise from air conditioning running 24 hours.

FitzWest Forum

At the FitzWest Forum, we have a small committee of local residents who keep an eye on applications and draw attention to ones that are important.  The committee meets every 4-6 weeks, currently by Zoom, and discusses the implications of various applications.  It’s an opportunity to have a real input and affect on Council decisions, and great for people who don’t have a lot of time but want to be involved.

If you would like to be on this committee please contact info@fitzwest.org.
