Westminster refuses multimillion Mayfair mews plans

The Woods Mews house designed by Stanesby Architecture

Councillors say no to Stanesby Architecture redevelopment scheme

Councillors in Westminster have refused planning permission for the demolition of a mews house in Mayfair to be replaced by a three-storey home designed by upmarket housing specialist Stanesby Architecture.

Members of the council’s planning committee flew in the face of officers’ recommendations to approve the three-storeys-plus-basement proposals for Woods Mews, which is a stone’s throw from Hyde Park.

Previous proposals to redevelop the building, which is unlisted but forms part of the Mayfair Conservation Area, were rejected in 2015. However officers consistently supported the latest Stanesby scheme, and government heritage adviser Historic England raised no objections.
