Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. The proposal to incorporate this piece of land within the fenced garden of 6 Rowan Way would be detrimental to character of the overall development and streetscape. It is clear that the present arrangements are fundamental to the open plan layout of the neighbouring properties. The current fence is consistent with the building line of the properties in Rowan Close. The property is adjacent to the Beech Road Character Area in the Horsham Town Design Statement in which the open plan layout is identified as a significant and important feature which the SPD says needs to be protected.
