A Victorian end-terrace could be demolished and a block of six flats built in its place under new plans.

An application to start work on the development at 23 Ravenshaw Street, South Hampstead, has been submitted to Camden Council.

It comes three years after a similar scheme for the site was refused over concerns it would appear “disproportionately large” in the surrounding area.

The applicant claims that problems highlighted in the refused design have since been addressed, and that the building would now appear as a “pair of attractive, contemporary, two-storey houses” to the casual observer.

The new building would in fact be three-storeys high, although the top floor would be placed inside pitched roof dormers, and would also have a basement.

Six flats would be created in total – two flats of three bedrooms in the basement with a further two comprising two bedrooms above, while another three bedroom flat and a single four bedroom flat would be located across the top two floors.

This reduces the total number of flats from the seven proposed in the rejected plans.

For work to go ahead, the existing Victorian end-terrace at 23 Ravenshaw Street would need to be demolished.

The new development would then be built on this site, and on an adjoining parking space.

This would in effect bridge the existing gap between two rows of terraced houses in the street.

Full details of the plans can be found on Camden Council’s planning portal under reference (2024/0467/P). Comments on the application can be made until March 18.
