Uckfield councillors comment on town planning applications

Plans by Howden Joinery to open a trade counter, warehouse and distribution centre in part of the former Trading 4U building on the Bellbrook Estate, Uckfield, were welcomed by town councillors  this week.

Wealden Council will make the decision on whether the proposals are approved but the Uckfield plans committee supported them.

Cllr Duncan Bennett said: “It is good to see a company doing well and wishing to expand in Uckfield.”

The committee met on Monday evening in the Council Chamber at Uckfield Civic Centre. Other recommendations made by them included:

6 Sandridge Ridge, Ridgewood: A commitment to approve a retrospective application to build a fence, to replace existing, alongside a property at 6 Sandridge, Ridgewood, as long as there is no covenant in existence which means the enclosed land should be an open space.

1 Cedars Close: Councillors objected to plans for a two-storey extension with associated internal alterations saying it was too bulky, too high and had the potential to overshadow a neighbouring property resulting in a loss of light.

22 Rocks Park Road: There were no objections to plans to replace an existing bedroom window with UPVC windows and UPVC doors to the rear of the property.

4 Farriers Way: Councillors supported plans for a ground floor extension to link a house and garage to form a w/c and store room and to build a first floor extension over the existing garage to form an additional bedroom.

Sussex House, Grange Road: The committee stood by a previous resolution not to support plans to change the use of offices to four self-contained two-bedroom flats. They felt the number of parking spaces was insufficient.
