Customer objects to the Planning Application

Reasons for comment:

- Design

- Highway Access and Parking

- Overdevelopment


I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. Overdevelopment- Bearing in mind the open nature of the surrounding development a maximum of four dwellings on this site would be more appropriate. Design- Whilst the design of the houses is not unattractive the Society objects to the proposed CREAM bricks - not a colour appropriate for Horsham. We note however that the roof tiles are to be "similar in style to those that predominate within the Horsham area"! Highway access & parking - The 'swept path' diagrams show that to achieve forward facing entry and exit from the proposed properties necessitates 'trespassing' on the neighbouring property's parking area. Surely not a satisfactory arrangement. The proposed trees and bollards on the footway verge could also present visibility problems. Who will be responsible for upkeep and maintenance?
