20/01224/FLH Replacement of existing single glazed wooden front (including bay) windows with double glazed uPVC windows
This application for a property in a Conservation Area seeks to replace existing wooden windows with UPVC double glazing units.
While double glazing is an obvious improvement, UPVC is an inappropriate material in a Conservation Area, significantly modifying the appearance of the property and adversely impacting the street scene.
The Society would prefer replacement with modern wooden window-frames capable of housing the same double-glazing units without impacting the visual appearance, and has therefore requested refusal of the application.
