You must not start any work on these parts of the development until we have approved what you have sent us.

 

You must then carry out the work according to these approved details.

 

Reason:

To protect the special architectural or historic interest of this listed building and to make sure the development contributes to the character and appearance of the East Marylebone Conservation Area. This is as set out in S25 and S28 of Westminster's City Plan (November 2016) and DES 1, DES 10 (A) and paras 10.108 to 10.146 of our Unitary Development Plan that we adopted in January 2007.

11. The east wall of the church is consecrated and therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the Consistory Court of the Diocese of London, and any work undertaken to or attached to this wall would first require a Faculty from the Chancellor under Care of Churches and Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure 1991 and the Faculty Rules 2015.”

 

RESOLVED:
