FOLLOWING on from last week’s story about the approved revised plans to building work in Old Fort Road, Shoreham it has been made apparent there are some changes.
Adur District Council orginally approved a proposal to demolish two bungalows and build four, two-storey properties in January 2012.
The properties are self builds and three of them will be moved into by the residents of the demolished bungalows and one of them will be sold.
On Tuesday, August 27, at a planning committee meeting, the revised plans to the height were approved after it was discovered the buildings had been built on a higher slab level, which was a construction error, than first agreed.
Peter Barnett, Adur District council, said in a report: “Overall, the new dwellings will be no higher than approved but they will result in a slightly taller vertical wall up to parapet level. As well as an increase in height, the dwellings are also 200mm closer to the rear boundary. However, it is not considered that the changes to the scheme have resulted in such an increase in bulk, over and above that already approved, as to justify a refusal of this application or to require the buildings to be lowered by 260mm and re-sited 200mm further south.”
