Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object strongly to this application on the basis of the information currently provided. We have no objection to the changes to the ground floor reception. There is no detail shown for the design of the security gate or fencing but based on the submitted plans we question their need and visual acceptability. They are wholly inappropriate for this prominent town centre site on one of our most important and attractive entrance routes to the town, and immediately adjacent to the Society's proposed North Street Conservation Area. It should be refused. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
