Conservation area extension?

Hammersmith & Fulham Council is looking at extending the boundaries of the Bradmore Conservation Area.

Cabinet are to consider the recommendation  to add Iffley Road, Kilmarsh Road, Overstone Road and Southerton Road in the south east. In the north, more homes would be added in Brackenbury Gardens, Brackenbury Road, Sycamore Gardens and Goldhawk Road.

This would restrict rights to alter the outside of the the homes which would be included.

Brackenbury Residents’ Association, The Hammersmith Society and Hammersmith and Fulham Historic Building Group have all argued in favour of the extension.

Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services, said: “Residents have been vocal in arguing that these homes are an important part of our borough’s heritage and deserve to be protected. We are determined to ensure that local planning regulations are developed in close consultation with residents and reflect their views.”

Rosemary Pettit, chair of the Hammersmith Society, said the group would be ‘particularly pleased’ if councillors enable three streets – Overstone Road, Southerton Road and Kilmarsh Road – to ‘come in from the cold’ by joining Bradmore Conservation Area.

She said: “Along with the southern tip of Iffley Road, residents in these streets will in future benefit from protection against undesirable development. And they have worked for it – gathering support from neighbours, liaising with the council and contributing to the new character study of the conservation area.”
