4 INKERMAN TERRACE
This is one of the most complete terraces in the Conservation Area and is identified as being a building of merit in the CAPS. We objected to an application for roof alterations due to the damage to the unity of the terrace and the loss of original building form. This was refused and has now been taken to appeal. We also objected to an application for a basement under the front garden not on principle but because the initial application would have moved the access stair and included an intrusive roof light which we again considered harmed the unity of the terrace. This was withdrawn and a revised scheme retaining the staircase in the original position and without a roof
light has been submitted. We consider that this is a win win with the applicant benefiting from the additional space and the special interest and character of the area being preserved.
