Listed building consent appeal in Westminster

01st November 2016
By Grant Leggett

Boyer has successfully overturned the decisions of the City of Westminster, at appeal,
to refuse planning permission and listed building consent for alterations to a Grade II
listed building on Warwick Square, Pimlico. Our client contacted us in April 2016 having
been refused permission for the conversion of a vacant plant room to a home office along with the insertion of a new window to the building’s rear elevation at high level.

The Council had cited harm both to the listed building and the wider Pimlico Conservation
Area caused by the new window. Our appeal was submitted in June and as part of our case we demonstrated that the Council had failed to properly assess the level of alleged harm in the required manner, and ultimately that there would be no harm to the special
architectural or historic interest of the listed building, or the Pimlico Conservation
Area. The Inspector agreed with our case and allowed the appeal in October.
