Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. The building concerned is on the Council's Local List and the proposal as submitted would result in a prominent and adverse impact on the façade. If something like this is necessary on health and safety grounds we would ask that consideration be given if practicable to moving the guard rails further back from the edge of the roof so they are less visible, or better still invisible, from the ground. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
