Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object sternly to this application. This Listed Building is of great importance being one of the four earliest in West Sussex. The applicant has not provided a Heritage Statement or Design and Access Statement to justify the proposed substantial works to the principal frontage of the building. We understand that the normal treatment in such cases would be an application for secondary double glazing. It is essential that the Council obtains professional advice from a conservation expert before considering this application further. As currently submitted it must be refused. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
