@Michael - three points:
3.5 Ten dedicated parking bays for Livesey Hall would be provided to the western side of the
Aldi store. A new garden area would also be formed for Livesey Hall directly to the south
of the Hall.
I recall there being twenty plus spaces allocated in the proposal at the consultation phase. This reduction is significant.
4.11 The Forest Hill Society object to the proposal on grounds including historic context; traffic management; and impact on local high streets.
So FHS did object on historic context grounds.
6.28 The current condition of the application site is neither welcoming or conducive to the public use of the already developed areas of the gasworks site. The site is desolate, characterised by a scaffolding yard; a hardstand area for motorcycle training; an overgrown bowling green that has been unused for many years, unsightly galvanised steel fencing around the gasholders; and overgrown hardstand areas for which their only function is to provide access for SGN workers. It may therefore be argued that the site itself is detrimental to the eastern setting of Livesey Hall, and that the redevelopment as proposed would provide an opportunity to enhance the appearance of the site, and its relationship with Livesey Hall as a listed building.
A more precise and realistic definition of the detrimental impact on the historic setting.
