Mid Sussex District Council granted planning permission yesterday for the demolition of a single dwelling and its replacement with two new detached houses of 2,500 sqft for developer client Tkei Homes.
Designed as a mirrored pair of Sussex vernacular homes, the houses take advantage of the long site and are set back substantially from the quite road, sharing a central access driveway allowing the existing mature trees to the front of the site to be retained.
Careful consideration of the local planning policies and a design that is sensitive to the local architectural style and character of the immediate area allowed for a smooth route through planning and positive feedback from the Pre-Application meeting with the planners. This scheme demonstrates that while it may be considered ‘garden-grabbing’ by some the planners can be supportive of well thought out and reasoned applications.

‘’What shall we include?……….’’
You will by now have read part one, and hopefully implemented, the first stages of galvanising a smooth and efficient process for delivering a new sports facility – now you simply need to agree and design its contents. Should be easy really…….shouldn’t it?
For the most part the need for a new facility has been generated by a need to grow and provide greater levels of accommodation than that previously enjoyed by the club. However in order to reinstate the existing provisions – say 4 changing rooms and ancillary facilities – may infact need to occupy a physical footprint greatly in excess of the existing building…….and thus not really yield any growth at all, but why?
