Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application on grounds of design. The proposed demolition of this old property is disappointing as it is the last remnant of the old Grub Sreet. However, it is a large plot which can take a new house with a larger footprint and ambitious design. Our objection relates therefore to the proposed design. We consider that the proposed building is too tall and this, combined with the treatment of the front elevation in particular, will result in a looming appearance out of scale with surrounding properties. In our view this is a missed opportunity and the site deserves better. John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
