1.0 Introduction This document accompanies the detailed planning submission prepared by CPMG Architects on behalf of The Ear Foundation charity to develop their existing facility at Marjorie Sherman House, Lenton, Nottingham.

2.0 The Site The Ear Foundation is located on Sherwin Road in Lenton, Nottingham. The Lenton suburb is situated approximately 2 miles south west of Nottingham city centre. Sherwin Road and the surrounding streets form a largely residential area, scattered with established trees. Location Map

The Ear Foundation site comprises the Grade II listed Trafalgar House and Marhorie Sherman House, a purpose built facility that dates from the mid 1990’s. The Ear Foundation is a registered charity and the site operates as a HQ for fund raising activities and a therapy centre for patients.

Site Map

The existing facility briefly comprises offices, rehabilitation rooms, and associated amenities. The proposal is to extend the existing facilities to increase the scope of rehabilitation rooms and offer conference facilities to stakeholders.

3.0 The Concept The Ear Foundation brief was to create additional rehabilitation rooms, new conference facilities, and an IT room through an extension to the existing facility. The extension is designed to fit comfortably with the existing building in terms of scale, materials, and design. The proposed 2-storey extension has the same material palette as the existing building, i.e. white render, an aluminium glazing system, and slate roof, with feature Ground floor plan – proposed extension outlined in red

timber elements. The window system is also designed to imitate the existing building. The new extension reinforces the courtyard feel of the site and incorporates a curved copper roof similar to that found on Trafalgar House.

4.0 Heritage Statement The Ear Foundation is located in the ‘Old’ Lenton Conservation Area, which covers a 2.75 hectare area west of the city centre. The area is noted for it’s considerable townscape quality, with many historic old buildings and tree lined streets. The proposed development lies in the

Trafalgar House viewed from Church Street

Triangular Sherwin Road/Church Street Zone to the south of the conservation area, where local areas of special interest include the Albert Ball Memorial Homes.

The extension to Marjorie Sherman house shares a plot with the Grade II Listed Trafalgar House which is noted in the 2010 Old Lenton Conservation Area Character Appraisal document for it’s ‘unusual cast iron veranda’. The consultation document also notes that Marjorie Sherman House viewed from Church St

Trafalgar House has ‘little impact on Gregory Street’ due to the high wall and dense planting.

The consultation document from June 2010 also proposes that Marjorie Sherman House is actually removed from the conservation zone. The proposed conservation area boundary plan is enclosed (left). Nevertheless, the proposed extension seeks to retain the existing boundary wall and tree canopy and thus have a minimal impact on the streetscape of Sherwin Rd and Gregory Street.

Access will largely remain unchanged with the addition of a new DDA compliant stairwell to the west end of the new extension. Externally, the hard landscaped courtyard area will be amended where necessary to provide level access to the new external

At building entrances, level threshold access into the building will be provided as a matter of course. All internal spaces are designed with wheelchair access in mind and therefore
