2-3 West Street PO19 1QD

17/01918/LBC and 17/01919/ADV 2-3 West Street PO19 1QD

Proposed 1 no. non-illuminated fascia sign, window and door vinyl’s and refurbishment of existing building to gelateria with preparation room in the basement, internal and external alterations to include electrical, mechanical, ceilings, walls, decoration, floors and skirting works.

Strong objection. The translucent vinyl transfers inside the windows are non-compliant with CDC shop-front guidance and will be harmful to the conservation area in a prominent position next to the market cross. In addition the untidy wiring above the left-hand end of the fascia should be removed or tidied up.

7 North Pallant PO19 1TJ

17/02014/DOM and 17/02015/LBC 7 North Pallant PO19 1TJ

Removal of rear extension and erection of a replacement single storey rear extension. 3 no. roof lights to rear attic roof and reinstate the pavement wells from the cellar windows.

Objection. The committee considers that this application is impossible to determine. The drawings are poor and there is insufficient detail. We are concerned about the loss of historic 1831 fabric and it is not clear how the cellar-wells in the pavement and fire escape will be achieved.

Providence Works 12A Lyndhurst Road PO19 7PF

17/01963/FUL Providence Works 12A Lyndhurst Road PO19 7PF

Variation of condition 2 of CC/15/04201/FUL. Alterations to design and fenestration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strong objection.

The committee considers this application to be invalid. We note that the drawings show a number of material changes from the previous approved application, including reinstatement of attic windows and an increase both in floor area and height and thus cannot constitute a variation of condition but should be subject of a new application. They seem to be a reversion to the original superseded plans withdrawn at the request of the planning officer. The additional bedrooms will result in more people and cars in a development we already consider to be over-dense.

The Draft Southern Gateway Masterplan is flawed in not addressing the level crossing misery

The Chichester Society has submitted its response via the questionnaire to the District Council’s draft Southern Gateway Masterplan. It can be viewed here.

While supporting the general thrust of the proposals the Society feels that the Master Plan is fundamentally flawed by not providing a solution for the level crossings misery. The provision of a bus gate and the existing crossing on Stockbridge Road and a                               shallow underpass for cars on or parallel to Basin Road is a workable solution.

As regards the Strategic Environmental Assessment the Society stated that the feasibility of the Master Plan aspirations and timetable require forward planning and investment now to enable the essential infrastructure items such as drainage, moving the bus depot, moving the Royal Mail Sorting Office, and land purchase for the underpass / level crossing solution.
