The proposals included modifications to the front garden area to provide additional car parking and changes to the boundary walls and gates.

The Society objected to the proposal to pave the former front garden and to the use of timber boundary fences and the increase in width of the gates, all of which we considered conflicted with the character of the Conservation Area. We are concerned that increasing pressure to use front garden spaces for car parking could lead to damaging changes to the appearance of our streets.

The Council supported our view and rejected the proposal for paving the front garden area and approved a revised scheme involving the use of traditional pattern iron railings and gates.
