Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. Rushams Road is highlighted in the Horsham Town Design Statement for its characteristic "Between the Wars" style and the issues for development are said to be "conversions...which may be unsightly" and the use of front gardens for parking. It is noted that the front garden has already been paved over. The proposed south facing dormer will be prominently visible from the front, be unsightly and adversely affect the street scene, and would unbalance the appearance of this pair of semi detached properties.
