Planning application to rear of 74-76 Bounds Green Rd: 3 storey block of flats

Haringey has published a planning application for a block of flats on Bounds Green Rd to be built on the land currently being used as a used car lot behind the newsagent and Bejoy curry house.

The application describes the proposed building as: "Erection of two-storey (ground and first floor) apartment block to the rear consisting of 7 flats (4 x 1 bedroom, 2 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom)." However it is in fact a three storey mansard-roofed construction with a flat in the third storey / roof which, along with the first floor, is likely to overlook the surrounding properties and I suppose it might increase the 'hemmed in' feel of the Ranelagh pub beer garden.  The other thing to note is the lack of outside space at the rear and the cramming in of parking spaces (I count three spaces on the drawing).  Even to get this many spaces the plan appears to indicate that cars will need to do a three point turn to get out.  There are seven flats proposed.  Children especially might find the lack of outside space restrictive.  The developer has previously had permission refused due to the scale and bulk of the proposals.  As a backland development the design needs to 'appropriate and sensitive' to the area and 'subordinate in size and complementary in design'.
