Dear Mr Eaves

DC/07/1348 LAND ADJOINING 10 DENNE ROAD, HORSHAM

I write on behalf of the Horsham Society to enter an objection to this application.

The Society notes that the proposal is for one 2-storey 2-bedroom house with basement on the open ground adjacent to Hadmans Close and Denne Road.

The Society also notes that the site is in a Conservation Area and that it formed part of the application in 1966 by the present applicants for the present residential development when it was noted "tree planting" and "grass amenity area".

The Society attaches great importance to the amenity value of small areas, such as this, in an increasingly built-up environment. They are particularly valuable as they frequently provide the only opportunity for the trees for which there is generally too little space in the smaller gardens which are increasingly the norm. They are also valuable, again in this case, in providing relief from the increase in the growth of built-up frontages, already evident on the east side of Denne Road..

Yours sincerely

Oliver Palmer
Vice-President, The Horsham Society

Result: application refused
