Campaign to save a positive contributor to the RedFrog Conservation Area from demolition – 2016/17
2016/2997/P – 28 Redington Road:
The 28 Redington Road planning appeal was a landmark case in which meticulous preparation and research by residents, and a collaborative relationship with Camden’s planning team, triumphed over expensive professional and legal input by the developer.
28 Redington Road is a classic Arts and Crafts house, which makes a positive contribution to Sub Area 4 of the Redington Frognal Area. It is in the style of Garth House in Edgbaston, a Grade II* listed Arts and Crafts house. An appraisal of 28 Redington Road was commissioned from the late Eddie Booth a former adviser to English Heritage and a past president of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation.
RedFrog were particularly concerned that consent had already been granted for numerous demolitions in Redington Road and it was of utmost importance to prevent the demolition of a positive contributor.
Restoration to the house to its former glory is easily achievable by repainting the render in white, removing yellow paint from stonework and removing green paint from garage gates and service door.
