Comments:

I write on behalf of the Horsham Society to object strongly to this application is as far as it seeks to prune the magnolia tree in order to let more light into the new properties. This iconic tree was referred to in the discussions prior to planning consent and it seems the developer may have chosen to build too close to it. No pruning should be permitted other than that, if any, necessary to preserve the health of the tree. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
