Proposal: Application for the approval of reserved matters (access, appearance, landscaping, layout, and scale) pursuant to outline permission ref 14/01420/AS for the erection of up to 100 dwellings, parking, landscaping, open space and associated works.
I am writing on behalf of the Tenterden & District Residents Association (TDRA) to object to this planning application for the following reasons:
a) We do not find any relevance to using the ‘arts and crafts’ style for Tenterden. A meaningful and detailed study of the local vernacular architecture is required and the materials and detailing need to be interpreted in a high quality and convincing manner.
b) The 3-storey flats at the southeast end of the proposed development will have a negative impact on the adjacent AONB and should be relocated towards the entrance to the site.
c) The protective buffer zone adjacent to the listed setting of Belgar is insufficient.
