Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society. When these homes were built in the former garden of the Vicarage assurances were given that the, then, substantial tree screen would be retained. Over the years a number of trees have been removed lessening its effectiveness. We therefore ask that care is taken not to approve felling and thinning that would significantly reduce the screening effect. The value of the original trees, which we understand were in many cases self-sown, lay in their screening ability rather than their individual interest. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
