Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to object to this application. Percy Road is one of the last unspoilt Victorian streets in the town and has not been disfigured by front facing dormer windows. It's special character is referenced on page 11 of the Horsham Town Design Statement SPD (Character Area - Trafalgar Road and surroundings). See also, page 30: Alterations Guidance which states "Dormers at the front should only be used if in keeping with the street scene". It is very important that such street scenes should be protected from inappropriate development. The application for front facing dormer windows should be refused/ John Steele Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
