Dear Mr Wright

DC/09/0940 28 WIMBLEHURST ROAD , HORSHAM

I write on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to the above.

The Society notes that the proposal is to demolish a double garage and conservatory and build a 3-storey 4-bedroom detached dwelling similar in design to, but smaller in extent than, the original family house which has only recently been extended and converted to flats.

The Society further notes that the site is in a Conservation Area and openness is one of the characteristic features. It is therefore concerned that the proposed dwelling would be only one metre from the side boundary with the next property and contribute to a significant and further loss of open space.

The Society is also concerned that the site is to provide parking not only for the proposed dwelling but to contribute to the parking for the existing flats and it is not immediately clear that vehicles will be able to turn to leave the site in forward gear. This road is well known for the high levels of traffic which regularly occur.

Yours sincerely


Oliver Palmer
