PLANNING COMMENTS SUBMITTED BY THE SUDBURY SOCIETY 25 SEPTEMBER 2015

 

B/15/00942/ 3-4 Church Street

While we are not opposed to the application for Change of Use to Residential only we are concerned about the detailed design particularly the treatment of the existing shopfront and anticipate a full application appropriate to a Listed building in the Conservation Area.

B/1501089/ New house adjacent St Mary’s 8 Ballingdon Street

We are surprised that the Council is being asked to respond to two possible sitings for a new house when it would be within the curtilage of no 8 – a Listed building within the Conservation Area. We are not convinced that a satisfactory solution is feasible given such a narrow site width whether the house is built up to the road frontage or is set back with right of access being obtained from the adjoining owners. Certainly we oppose the present application for Outline Approval with all matters reserved.
