An application for 12 new houses and flats at the site of a vacant Cowfold pub has been submitted to Horsham District Council.
Under proposals put forward by developer Pegasus the first floor of the Coach House would be split up into three flats, the outbuildings would be converted into residential properties, while six homes would be built on land to the rear of the pub.
The application includes access arrangements on to Brook Hill, 15 car park spaces, pedestrian access on to The Street, and associated landscaping.
The pub, in The Street, closed in late 2012 and has been boarded up ever since.
Earlier this year the Co-operative Group submitted a separate application to make minor internal and external alterations to the ground floor of the pub prior to opening a new food store.
These included installation of new full-length windows, automatic sliding entrance doors, ATM, and a new entrance ramp.
However according to HDC’s planning portal this application has been withdrawn.
Before it was withdrawn Cowfold Parish Council objected to the Co-op’s planning application. In its response the parish council said that it had seen three different plans for the entire site, which contained a number of discrepancies, and called for a proposed site plan to be produced.
To view the application visit HDC’s public planning portal at http://public-access.horsham.gov.uk/public-access and type in DC/14/0423.
