London terrace houses 1660-1860
A guide to alterations and extensions
This leaflet is intended to assist local planning authorities in London, as well as owners and their professional advisers, in considering some of the most common forms of alterations to London terrace houses. It sets out Historic England's guidance on London terrace houses and is concerned largely with listed eighteenth- and nineteenth-century examples. However, similar principles can be applied generally to cellular domestic buildings of all periods, including many unlisted terraces and mews.
Although the guidance is drawn from Historic England's work in London, it may well be applicable elsewhere, particularly in the south-east where London house types were often used as models. Traditional regional architecture and repair techniques do vary, however, and the advice of the local planning authority should always be sought.
