😮 Thats our “independent” planning appeals board for ya’ ABP!!
Big/high is not always good. I completely agree with the height reduction, the site is not suited for a 10+ storey building, as it would indeed block views of County Hall, and given the latter’s landmark/standalone nature it would look decidedly odd and out of place. I shudder to think about it, no exaggeration. County Hall may not be the most aesthetically pleasing building, but it certainly is imposing and iconic, and dominates the western skyline of the city, especially when silhouetted on a sunny summer’s evening. A well designed six storey building could fit in nicely here, and maintain what is left of the ‘village’ aspect of Victoria Cross. Here’s hoping…
