Glynde Mews, off Walton Street in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is a good example of a redeveloped Mews. When we first visited in 2008 it consisted of a number of modest traditional Mews properties lining a cul-de-sac but although the Mews appeared authentic it was not attractive.
Following planning permission being granted in 2010 there was whole-scale redevelopment of the mews around a large basement excavation. This resulted in a modern Mews structure with an inauthentic barrel shaped roof, rendered elevations, cobbled roadway and with basement vehicle storage via a car lift.
The properties have a very distinctive look and have clearly been redeveloped but the mews is left with little in the way of authentic or original features.
Due, however, to the planning requirements the development still retains the scale, proportion and the configuration of a traditional Mews, and also the same footprint as the original dwellings, so can be categorised as redeveloped.
