Sensitivity needed

WITH regard to the Beach Hotel, I wonder if Worthing Borough Council’s planning department is aware of PPS5 (planning policy statements) or its predecessor PPG15 (planning policy guidance 15) which concern redevelopment of historic properties.

The government’s aim is to encourage and promote sensitivity in re-use, and this surely also covers the surrounding environment?

In permitting the proposed crude building with a tower, it would seem the department is ignorant of these requirements and consequently the people of Worthing suffer.

Someone suggested to me that there should be a replacement of officers.
