Friends of Lewes Planning Committee Report 7 April 2016

Representations made on planning applications following the meeting of the Planning Committee held on Thursday, 7 April 2016.

Weeks ending 8, 15, 22 and 29 March and 5 April

No objections were raised to the applications reviewed. However, the drawings submitted with three applications from Lewes District Council for pram and cycle shelters were considered to fall well below the standard required for planning applications. The following comment was submitted:

SDNP/16/00744/FUL: Installation of bike and buggy shelter/storage. Spences Court 58 Spences Lane.

SDNP/16/00951/FUL: Installation of two bike shelters. Heron Court Ousedale Close.

SDNP/16/00971/FUL: Installation of bicycle shelter. 58-80 Blois Road.

Friends of Lewes has no objection in principle to the development proposed. However, it was unable to make informed judgments on the impact of the proposals from the poor quality drawings submitted with SDNP/16/00744/FUL and SDNP/16/00971/FUL and the absence of any drawings with SDNP/16/00951/FUL. The Society considers all of the applications should have included drawings that clearly show the elevations and materials of the development proposed and that LDC as a planning authority should set good standards via its own planning applications.
