Planning Permission in Chelsea for Grade II Listed Townhouse

Thursday, December 14, 2023

Illegal works to a Grade II Townhouse in Chelsea, London – Overcome.

Dyer Grimes Architecture are thrilled to announce Planning Approval and Listed Building Consent for the restoration and refurbishment of Grade II listed 1 Caryle Square in Chelsea, a prominent location bordering the Kings Road.

The project has encountered a challenging planning process and an especially long determination period, explained below.

A large amount of internal building works had been carried out by the previous owners unlawfully and insensitively, which put the project on a wrong footing with Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Planning Authority.

A large quantity of the proposals sought to undo the damage and make reparations to the original building fabric. This involved continuous engagement and design-led meetings with the LPA’s heritage team, and a significant amount of careful detailed design information to demonstrate the proposals were appropriate to time, place and culture.

It is a beautiful property and it’s southern boundary borders onto Kings Road. No 1 forms one third of the Grade II listing which is a collection of 1,2 & 3 Carlyle Square. Together these form a balanced façade where the central property is characterised by fluted ionic pilasters running between the Piano Nobile (first floor) and second floor. These sit on top of a stucco rusticated ground floor which spans the three properties.
