Internal alterations including formation of kitchen and WC to ground floor common room of Durham Building to form the JCR. Formation of a ramped access and paving to west elevation of Durham Building.

Neither this Listed Building application, nor the associated application reference 17/00886 provide any details of the proposals for installing plumbing, drainage and ventilation services to the proposed accessible toilet, and the kitchen, which are to be introduced in a position where no such services appear to exist. The effects of the installation of these services on the historic fabric of the building thus cannot be assessed. Consent should be withheld pending provision of proposals which demonstrate that insignificant adverse effects will arise as a consequence of the need to install plumbing, drainage and ventilation services.
