A listed landmark on green belt where a Grammy-award winning singer lives may have significant restoration works.

The Round House in Broxhill Road in Havering-atte-Bower, home to Imogen Heap's Hideaway Recording Studio, could be subject to major works if Havering Council approves a planning application.

Ms Heap, who created the studio in the Round House's basement in 2006, and Michael Heap are behind the proposal, according to its application form.

Proposed works to the Grade II listed building include roof and balcony repair, as well as the refurbishment of its historic Old Dairy outbuilding.

In a design and access statement from agent Settle & Green, it was argued works were needed since the last improvements were made in the 1980s.

"Despite the building's occupation and regular housekeeping practises [today] [...] there are elements of the fabric that are at the end of their life that are becoming incapable of continuing to fulfil their purpose and are causing damage to the building."

The applicants had their proposal received by the council on April 18 and validated on the same day.

Imogen and Michael Heap both have their listed address as The Round House/ The Round House Farm in Broxhill Road on the application form.

A decision date for the plans, L0002.24, currently undecided, was set to June 13.

The Round House was built in 1792 and designed to be a family home, according to its website.

Brentwood-based architects Settle & Green revealed that the proposal would have tiles reinstated, soffits repaired and lead and copper work done to its roof.

The building would also be redecorated, its windows repaired, metalwork to its balconies renewed and chimney pots reinstalled.

A passageway entrance to the building's basement, containing Ms Heap's studio which was visited by pop star Taylor Swift in 2014, would be repaired.

Heap's second Grammy win was for her work as part of the production of Swift's album 1989.

According to the application form, the proposal does not include the partial or total demolition of the listed building - just alterations.

The Round House was described by the agent as a gentry house built in an Italian style for William Sheldon.

Settle & Green said that the works would allow the historic building to survive.

"This work considerably reduces or removes the risk of the asset to ensure long term viability of the building whilst preserving the significance of the heritage asset."
