Arundel Town Council July News

Edited extracts from the draft minutes of the Planning and Environment Committee meeting held on 13th June 2019.

AB/49/19/L

Location: Sparks Yard, 18 Tarrant Street, Arundel, BN18 9DJ

Proposal: Listed building consent for internal and external alterations to facilitate the change of use of upper floors to a single, four bedroom residential unit [use class C3a] and ground floor to a commercial unit (use classes A1,A2 & B1a).

Response: The Committee objected to the application on the grounds that there would be significant alterations to a historic building, the continual erosion of retail uses would undermine the vitality and viability of the Arundel’s shopping experience and, thus, unless there was robust financial evidence that the use of the premises were no longer viable for a commercial use, and that the property has been on the commercial market to let/sell for a period of time without success, the application should be refused.
