The ground floor is used as a dental practice (no. 158 – 160) with residential units at the rear and on the first floor (no. 158a, 158b and 160a). The residential units are self-contained flats (2 x 4 beds and 1 x 2 bed) and accessed through a lockable door via an alley between no 158 and 156. There is a large garden to the rear of the property used for amenity space with a stone patio and two detached single storey brick built storage units with a felt flat roof. There is a former workshop building located to the rear of 156 High Road which has been converted into a two storey residential property (no. 156c and 156d) with UPVC windows and flat felt roof.

The residential units are self-contained flats (2 x 4 bed flats) and accessed directly from the courtyard, with an external metal staircase leading to the first floor flat, sheltered by a PVC corrugated roof. The site has its own access directly from High Road via vehicle or foot through a lockable entrance way. The concrete courtyard includes access rights within the title register for trade vehicles, for the purpose of off-loading goods through a side door within the courtyard and rights of way / entry on foot to and from the staircase of 156B and 156E (flats above entrance way excluded from the title).

The properties are located within the London Borough of Brent and is not listed or situated within a conservation area or flooding zone.

The building to the rear of 156 High Road was a former workshop building for Gohil Fashions. Change of use from a workshop on the ground floor to a self-contained flat was permitted Monday 11th October 1999 as per planning application reference 99/1728. Change of use of the first floor from B1 (Business) to self-contained flat C3 (Dwellinghouse) was permitted Monday 13th July 1998 as per planning application reference 98/0706.

The potential to increase the height of 158 – 160 High Road, subject to planning, is demonstrated by the neighbouring property, 156B High Road, London, NW10 2PB, obtaining planning permission 7th March 2017 for the erection of a mansard roof extension to create a third floor with a 1 bedroom self-contained flat as per the planning reference 16/5562.

It is considered by The London Borough of Brent that any extension is not to cause unacceptable harm to the subject terrace or street scene and is recommended that any proposed design is to have a traditional appearance in-keeping with the building and area. The mansard is also to be set back from existing parapet walls, appearing subordinate, respecting the character of the building.

The proposed development is to be considered acceptable in terms of the standard of accommodation, character and appearance, impact upon neighbouring amenity, transport and is in accordance with relevant policies within the London Plan (2016), Brent’s Development Management Policy (2015) and SPG 17 “design guide for new development”.
