Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. The revised plans showing a slightly wider gap between the proposed houses simply serves to further highlight that the applicant is trying to shoehorn five houses into a plot that is suitable for a maximum of four. We have no objection in principle to infill development on this site but it needs to respect the character of the current street scene. Although existing properties are varied in character and style they are all well spaced giving an overall uncrowded appearance to the street scene. This can only be satisfactorily mirrored on this site by a reduction to four houses. We are also concerned about the colour of the proposed brickwork. Red brick/local stock brick should be used instead. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
