Development have been underway for some time in the conservation area at Greatham near Pulborough in West Sussex. Last year the developer made a planning appeal against a refusal relating to the Granary in Greatham (West Sussex), adjacent to the Grade II Greatham Manor listed building. The Friends of the South Downs District Officer David Coldwell & Policy Officer Vic Ient made a visit to the neighbouring property, Greatham Manor to investigate planning issues raised with our Society by the residents. We were concerned at what we saw, and subsequently we submitted the Society’s objection to the planning inspector. Much of the case hinged on the impact that the proposed development would have on the listed buildings adjacent to the Manor (Grade II) and the Grade 1 listed church nearby. We were very pleased to learn recently that the inspector agreed with all the objections he had received, and roundly rejected the appeal. A small success in the protection of the setting of listed buildings!
