Proposed Change of use to a Montessori School (Richmond Council ref 15/5056/FUL)
The applicant has now withdrawn this application.
This application was due to be discussed at Planning Committee on 25th May but was withdrawn from the agenda on the day, at the applicant’s request, to consider the conditions recommended by the planning officer. The recommendation is, on balance, to approve the change of use for a temporary 3 year period subject to conditions on pupil numbers, opening hours, transport arrangements and a Section 106 contribution of £4,500 for parking issues.
We have objected to the change of use of this residential listed property to become a Montessori School. We do not think this is the right location for a school on a busy road in a residential area. Number 338 Kew Road, near the Maid’s of Honour tea shop. The applicant has commented to us on the points we have raised and we await the Council’s decision. Link to application
