Appeal lodged against Worthing homes plan

AN appeal has been lodged by Kitmarr Ltd against Worthing Borough Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for redevelopment of the former Reps Health Studio site in Grafton Place.

The rejected planning application was to part-demolish the listed building and convert the remainder to provide one two-bedroom flat, two one-bedroom flats and six studio flats; plus the erection of three two-storey houses and two one-bedroom flats within the grounds.

A government planning inspector will decide the appeal after visiting the site and studying written representations from both parties.
