Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. We share the concerns of other objectors over the suitability of the access via Windrum Close, both during construction and in the longer term. Apart from safety and amenity concerns, the apparent lack of vehicular access to the rest of the development risks creating an isolated ghetto of affordable housing. We also consider the building design to be rather banal and an opportunity missed to create something suited to the 21st century. John Steele Secretary Planning Sub Committee
