Representations made on planning applications following the meeting of the Planning Committee held on Thursday, 11 December 2014.
Weeks at 11, 18 and 25 November and 2 December
Applications as at 18th November
SDNP/14/04906/FUL & SDNP/14/05783/LIS: Installation of a fascia sign and hanging sign and redecoration of shopfront. 66 High Street
Friends of Lewes objects to several design aspects of this application which it considers are contrary to policy H2(b) of the Lewes District Council Local Plan.. The proposed fascia is clumsy and does not relate to the existing narrow fascia – it appears ‘stuck on’. The original 18/19th century brickwork below the shop fascia should be retained and cleaned; not painted as proposed. The proposal to fix the high level hanging sign to the mathematical tiled cladding is difficult to achieve without damage and should be avoided if at all possible.
Applications as at 25th November
SDNP/14/05939/HOUS: Erection of a single storey rear extension and loft conversion including hip to gable extension and raising of the ridge height. 6 Winterbourne Close
Friends of Lewes objects to the scale of the proposed loft conversion which does not respect the character of neighbouring buildings, contrary to policy ST3(a) of the Lewes District Council Local Plan. It objects to the proposal to extend the height of the loft conversion above the existing ridge level and the conversion of the existing hipped roof to a gable end. Both will result in a structure of excessive height and width.
SDNP/14/05687/FUL: Re-cladding of workshop walling to replace timber cladding with profiled metal. Caffyns Plc Brooks Road
Friends of Lewes had no objection to application SDNP/13/04653/FUL to re-clad the workshop walling with timber. However, whilst ‘profiled metal cladding’ could be a perfectly acceptable finish to an industrial building it objects to its use in this particular case. It considers timber should be used to match the timber finish on the adjacent Caffyns Showroom, thereby maintaining a style that is consistent with that of neighbouring buildings.
SDNP/14/05802/HOUS: Replacement of hedge and post and wire fence with wall and hedge and creation of paved parking area. 30 South Street
Friends of Lewes is concerned that the proposed wall will result in a severe change to the street scene from green hedge to stark wall, contrary to policy ST3 of the Lewes District Council Local Plan.
Applications as at 2nd December
SDNP/14/06092/FUL& SDNP/14/06093/ADV: Erection of retractable awning, side panels and wind break over open area used as additional seating. Riverside Cafe Bar Riverside High Street
Friends of Lewes objects to the proposed awning and side panels which will detract from the fenestration of the listed building and adversely affect its character, contrary to policy H2(b) of the Lewes District Council Local Plan.
