Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. The proposal is unsound on technical grounds insofar as the design will not generate much power with horizontal panels and will rapidly fall off as they get dirty. To be effective the panels would have to be placed at a 45-70 angle which would be unsightly and unacceptable. But our main objection is that it will perpetuate the use of the old petrol station canopy which is no longer necessary, is instrinsically unsightly and should be removed.
