Friends of Lewes Planning Committee Report 7 November 2019

Representations made on planning applications following the meeting of the Planning Committee held on 7 November 2019: 

SDNP/19/03815/FUL: Erection of 1no. three bedroom dwelling with off road parking. Amendment to application SDNP/18/02356 to change roof pitch to accommodate 1no. new bedroom and bathroom. Land to The rear of 47 Cliffe High Street.
Friends of Lewes object to this amended application which it regards as an over development of the site. The amendments to the roof in the context of the surrounding buildings are inappropriate and the design of the dormers too fussy.

SDNP/19/04733/HOUS: Works to the front of the property, replacement boundary wall and hedge, access alteration, erection of oak frame pergola and replacement of side door. 3 Park Road.
Friends of Lewes have been consulted by the applicants about the development proposed. The Society supports the proposed works and commends the extensive efforts the property owners have made to evolve a worthwhile design that is right for the Conservation Area.

SDNP/19/04670/HOUS: Proposed erection of shed in the front garden. 23 St Annes Crescent.
Friends of Lewes object to the proposal to erect a shed in a front garden within the Conservation Area because of the risk of it being visible from the street. Should permission be granted, conditions should define the maximum permitted height that ensures it is not visible from the street.
