*** 14/04500/F - 2-16 Clifton Down Road

Demolition of existing building and redevelopment of site comprising retail floor space (A1 and A3). 14 residential apartments (C3) and ancillary uses. (Major application).
CAP commented on these new plans for this site as follows: ”The Panel considered the treatment of the side wings and the hard landscape had not been resolved. The different cladding of the two wings emphasised the disjunction of the façade. The breaks forward in the previously consented scheme were in glass which had less impact on the street scene. The angled cut off to the pent house canopy produced an over assertive silhouette. The ground floor screens, ramps and stairs would create a poor quality public realm because they appear to be disjointed; they would not create a unified design. Active and lively uses in Kings Rd are essential; the Panel regretted the reduction of the retail units to two. The Panel considered that the Clifton Down Rd elevation is the most important public aspect of this development. Neither the ground space nor open space above it enhances the public realm. The proposal represents a lost place making opportunity in a very important public location."
