Cllr. Mary Mears

BH2020/01756 – The White House, Roedean Road


24th July 2020:

As a ward Councillor for Rottingdean Coastal I am writing to object to the above planning applications for the following reasons;


I objected to the first planning application and this new application does not address my previous concerns.


The proposed 3x5 bedroom family houses is a gross over development of the site the design of the three houses are bulky and cover the width of the plot and would cause overshadowing , house no1 is now right up to the boundary.


This development is to close to the boundary of Roedean Road, it is showing a single parking space per home plus 2 shared spaces for visitors, houses of this size would normally have more parking spaces per house.

There is also a serious issue of safety on this section of Roedean Road which has double yellow lines and no foot path, and a steep bank on the north side the proposed access is shared with Ocean Heights and would mean that traffic would be using this access on a blind bend.


Should this planning application be minded to grant under delegated powers, I wish this planning application to go to the planning committee and reserve my right to speak.
