Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. This is a key location deserving of a prestige building which on the current evidence will not be achieved through these plans to add units to the top of an existing building. They do not appear to be aligned with the vertical detail of the existing building and would look very odd and out of keeping with it. The current building has merit and reconfiguration within the existing shell, for which there is already planning consent, would be far preferable to what is now proposed
