Fittleworth Parish Council June News

Fittleworth, West Sussex

Edited extracts from draft minutes of the Parish Council meeting on 18th March 2019 (Planning Application Appendix). Selection of the applications:


Buildings South of Little Bognor House Little Bognor Road Fittleworth West Sussex Proposal: Extension and alteration to existing outbuildings (resubmission of application SDNP/18/02810/FUL

All reviewed plans and compared with previous plans. Noted that with some very small alterations, the physical works to the buildings are largely similar to the previous application which was refused. On this basis, we do not seek to oppose the proposals, but would wish for the use of the building to be restricted to uses which are ancillary to the main house and suggest this could be secured through an Unilateral Undertaking rather than planning condition. With reference to our comments on the previous application, we remain concerned about the effect that the proposals will have upon surrounding Conservation Area trees. All Members of the Planning Committee agreed: Neutral with concerns.


Location: Gorseland Wyncombe Close Fittleworth Pulborough West Sussex RH20 1HW Proposal: Loft conversion with addition of front and rear dormer windows, covered porch and sliding doors to rear elevation.

No objections

The committee note that there are numerous examples of front dormers along the Close and so we do not think that these are out of character. The ‘barn end’ detail is also to be found nearby.

We are also happy that the rear dormers will not result in any overlooking into adjoining properties due to the changes in levels at the rear.


Location: Hesworth Farm Hesworth Common Lane Fittleworth RH20 1EW

Proposal: Demolition of garden building and construction of 1 no. timber single garage with garden equipment store.

No objection. We have no objections to the proposed design and would support the relocation of the proposed building forward by approximately 5m as discussed on site with the applicant.


Location: Stables North-West of Hesworth Common Hesworth Common Lane Fittleworth West Sussex Proposal: Replacement of existing equestrian buildings with a building to be used for stabling and an associated self-contained unit of holiday accommodation.
