Application Number:  AWDM/1281/19


Mannings, Surry Street, Shoreham-By-Sea


Demolition of existing building and structures and construction of building ranging in height from three to six storeys providing 74 residential units comprising 28no. 1 bedroom, 40no. 2 bedroom and 6 no. three bedroom units, including 27 car parking spaces 3 of which are wheelchair accessible, 86 cycle parking spaces, amenity space, soft and hard landscaping and associated ancillary facilities.


The Chairman reminded Members that at the last Planning Committee meeting in November they had resolved to approve the above planning application for the redevelopment of the Mannings.  However, at that time the Committee had requested that further work be undertaken to introduce greater visual interest and brickwork detailing.


Samples of materials proposed for use in the redevelopment of the Mannings site had been displayed in the Adur Members’ Room. 


The Officer and architects had discussed several possible architectural changes, and the Officer ran through in detail, with images, the proposed changes which included, the design and alignment of balconies and entrance porches, brickwork detailing and repositioning of some windows within the proposal.


The Officer felt the architectural changes, with the palette of materials shown, would create a more sympathetic and visually distinctive building.  The Officer concluded his presentation by requesting any comments from Members.  


A Member requested the colour of the brick mortar to be used on the development.  The Officer responded the colour had not been agreed as yet but expected it to be fairly neutral. 


Another query was in relation to the top level of the building and how it would blend in with the remainder of the building.  The Officer advised it would have a darker brick tone, and be heavily recessed, making it appear more understated.


There was a further representation from the architect, Wai Lun Ho.



The Members supported the amended plans which had achieved greater visual interest and detailing, along with the sample of materials which were also presented to the Committee.  


The materials would be settled through the planning conditions to be attached to the planning permission. 


Planning permission would be issued subject to the above, the delegation given to the Head of Planning and Development on 11 November 2019 and the completion of a legal agreement.
