The 1970s designed and built “The Colonnades” building in Bayswater, West London, was subject of a planning application to extend upwards by 1 and 2 storeys with 11 flats. Proposed by existing residents, the application attracted 50 letters of objection and 23 letters of support.
Sir Terry Farrell objects to the additional storeys believing that his original design will be adversely affected. Although not a Statutorily Listed building, the original design and character of the area is afforded some protection sitting in a Conservation Area.
The application was due to go before Westminster Council’s planning sub-committee on the 9th June with a recommendation for approval, however the application was (on the day) withdrawn so committee members were unable to consider and determine it. It is unclear if the applicants are re-considering there proposals with a view to submitting another application or if any future plans have been put on hold or dropped complete.
