Planning determination

The proposals restore the historic street line and the continuity of the urban block. Carefully crafted masonry elevations reflect the traditional hierarchy of base, body and attic.

The overall building scale is reduced from nine to seven storeys and on the smaller side street of Eaton Terrace and South Eaton Place, the scale is reduced further to five storeys.

In place of the unsightly surface parking, a generous landscaped garden is proposed at the heart of the block enhancing the outlook of neighbouring properties.

The rhythm of town houses characteristic of South Eaton Place and Eaton Terrace inform the design of the proposed elevations to these streets.

Active ground floor uses animate the Ebury Street frontage contributing to the wider public realm initiatives promoted by the Grosvenor Estate on Elizabeth Street.

Residential front doors activate the ground floors and the fenestration to the upper storeys reflecting the order of the historic neighbouring town houses.
