Thank you for your reply. I would like to remind you that Manor Mount is within the conservation area of Forest hill, I do not believe this is the case with Taymount Rise. A conservation area is not an area designated for new housing, it is an area which is to be protected and conserved. There are plenty of developments going on in Forest Hill, this will not be of the low cost type of housing which is needed in the area, because Manor Mount is the most expensive roads in the area. This proposal will caused out of scale and overbearing development, purely for monetary gain. I think that you have not looked carefully enough at the plans for this proposal. It will not be to create two buildings, it will be to create one large one, by removing the back wall of the present Victorian property and building out to the rear of the property and by removing the side wall of the present property and building out towards 1 1/2. Both these proposed extensions will reach out beyond the front and the back of 1 1/2 Manor mount causing a loss of amenity and light. They also propose to build a large car park at the front and will have to remove all the trees and shrubs at the front and many at the back. The plans do not adequately represent the proposal and do not show 1 1/2 Manor mount on the front elevation diagram. A planning Surveyor has already looked at the plans and one of the the most important elements which affects no 1 1/2 is that deep excavations would have to take place beside the property which would almost certainly cause fatal subsidence. Even removing the garage which lies directly beside the side wall of 1 1/2 could cause subsidence. The house next door to No 1 has created only a minor extension in relation to this proposal and this has caused subsidence to No 1 which has led the present owners to do extensive building work to try and counter it. The house next door to No.3 which has had a small extension and a car park has also been greatly undermined by the extension which has caused a serious groundwater problem. I am not only deeply concerned by the affect on my own property by this proposal I am also concerned that it will affect my neighbourhood adversley. All my neighbours are very distressed by the proposal and everyone has signed a petition. We went through the same ordeal last year and that proposal was thrown out. It has not been radically changed. No one I have spoken to in Manor Mount wants this development to go ahead and we are appealing to everyone in Forest Hill to support us by signing the petition above.
