3.1   Pre-Application Meeting
A pre-application meeting was held with Merton Council
on the 6th of June, 2017.

The scheme presented is shown to the right, and
consisted of the refurbishment of the pub and its side
building, and an annex building to the rear.                                                              Southern Views

The annex building was four stories, with the 4th storey
set back.

3.2   Pre-App Comment
The scheme presented at the pre-application meeting
received the following feedback:

1. Retention of the pub meets policy and heritage
aspirations.

2. Relationship of residential and public house to be
considered, especially the landscaped courtyard.

3. General principle of backland development is accepted.

  a. Scale of development needs to be considered further,
especially in relation to the long view looking from Cricket
Green; rear development should sit below ridgeline of
existing building.

 b. Overlooking will need to be considered

3.3   Planning Substitution
This document forms part of a Planning Substitution, to
supercede the previous Design & Access submitted with
the planning application registered on 20/11/2019, with
application reference 18/P2216.

The original submitted scheme included conversion of
some of the ancillary pub spaces (including kitchens) to
residential dwellings.

The revised scheme proposed in this document retains all
areas associated with the pub. The only minor alteration
to the listed building is in regards to the removal of the
external egress stair. This is proposed to move to the
interior of the building, with the egress door proposed as
a sympathetic alteration to the inn building facade.

Further, the servicing of the pub was questioned. It is now
serviced completely from the rear (entry from Broadway
Gardens); this can be evidenced in the updated Transport
Statement included with this Planning Substitution.

Finally, the retention of the pub in its current form allows          Previously Submitted Scheme
the annex to exist as a separate entity, though pub
deliveries will be made via a shared breezeway, with the
courtyard acting as a buffer between the two use classes.
The use of landscaping clearly defines the boundaries of
the pub exterior space, and the communal residential
amenity.

The existing building includes the original public house
and inn, side annex building, and a later kitchen addition.

The scheme proposes development at the rear (currently
the parking area) with a landscaped courtyard between
the original listed public house, and the new residential
annex to the rear. This will provide a high quality
landscaped area for the public house garden, as well as
private communal amenity for the residential annex.

4.3   Listed Building Alteration
The proposal involves a small alteration to the rear of the
inn building of the listed building.
                                                                                                                                                                                   Exterior egress
The exterior metal egress stair is to be removed, and the                                                                                                                          stairs removed
egress from second level moved to the interior of the inn
building.

A new egress door will be inserted in the facade.

This alteration will be sensitive, sympathetic, and in
keeping with the listed building.

information on the proposed alteration.

adjacent context, previous development footprint, and the
site constraints:

4.5   Annex Development Massing
The geometry of the annex development has been
informed by a variety of site conditions and adjacencies,
as outlined below:

                                   1. Volume of development defined by site adjacencies,      2. Volumes stepped to meet existing buildings   3. Annex northwest roof shaved to ensure building
                                   considering overlooking and context alignments.            and context.                                    sits comfortably behind the existing public house,
                                                                                                                                              when seen from Cricket Green.

4.6   Scale and Massing
The massing is designed to respect and address the
massing of the conservation area context and the more
contemporary blocks.

The proposed new volume is at the back of the site which
allows for increased height from the pub building. The                                     Southern Views
height of the block relates to the flats to its south while
stepping away from the gardens to the north.

The proposed building has 3 full storeys and a sculpted
4th floor set within the pitched roof.
                                                                                                                                                                                 Open space
There is no impact on the key views within the                                                                                                                                    for school
conservation area.

The massing of the new volume, the existing pub building
and its annex form a secure amenity area, to be used as a
garden for the pub, and as a private communal amenity                       4                                     3.5

5.0 Architectural Treatment

5.1   Architectural Treatment
The architectural treatment of the building has been
designed to be sympathetic, sensitive, and
complementary to the materials and features of the listed
building.

Further, the appearance takes cues from the character of
the surrounding conservation area.

Brick

• Primary material is brick

• Brick used in much of the surrounding context

• The existing pub will be retained

• Its main material is brick which is painted in white

Bays and Balconies
                                                                      The White Heart - Existing pub retained   Bronze finish
• The bays and balconies will incorporate metal
  balustrades

• Most of the balconies are inset, which lends depth and
  richness to the elevation

• Where inset balconies are not possible, projecting
  balconies are introduced to ensure that every new-
  build flat has its own private amenity space

Please note that colours on this page are indicative and
the exact materials will be specified at a later stage.               Brick                                     Metal Balustrade

The proposed annex massing sits central to the site,
therefore preventing any obtrusive overshadowing.

The images to the right show the scheme at the equinox
(March / September 21) at 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm, and 4

The scheme ensures minimal overshadowing occurs over
adjacent residential properties.

8.1   Landscape Opportunities
Combined with the proposed annex building, a generous
courtyard space is created as the heart of the residential
development.

This courtyard will act as a high quality communal
amenity for the residential users, as well as being the
main point of access for the residential units.

It is also proposed that the pub will have a high-quality
landscaped garden within the courtyard.

10.0 Conclusion
10.0 Conclusion

This document forms part of the application of the
redevelopment opportunities at the site of the White Hart
pub at 350 London Road (London Borough of Merton).

It has provided a thorough analysis of the site, followed by
a chronological review of the design development and
consultation process.

From the first pre-application to the current proposal, the
scheme has evolved to avoid any negative impact on the
existing townscape and on neighbours. The massing has
been sculpted to fit comfortably within the existing context.

Further, the scheme has been refined to ensure the annex
building does not appear prominently in sensitive views,
specifically looking north on Cricket Green.

A variety of measures have been incorporated in the design
to ensure there is no overlooking to adjacent properties
and to safeguard the existing neighbours and the future
occupiers’ privacy.

Additionally, the landscape strategy has been developed
to create a central green space to incorporate amenity
space for the residents.
