21/00004/AS – Extension and Refurbishment of Tenterden Town Hall, 24 High Street, Tenterden Kent TN30 6AN

I am writing on behalf of the Tenterden & District Residents Association (TDRA) to comment on this planning application for the following reasons:

  • Generally we support the proposals, however we do have concerns about the proposed design of the fenestration to the North Elevation – we feel that the use of aluminium is not appropriate for a Listed Building, particularly as the use of timber framed windows is typically enforced within the Conservation Area generally.
  • In addition, the windows are not sympathetic to the character of the surrounding context both in design and proportion, they lack detailing and intricacy. We would like to see this element re-designed to a more sensitive proposal that respects the existing Listed building and surrounding Conservation Area.
