P07/08.8 Planning Applications

8.1 RR/2007/282/P AMENDED PLANS Construction of Pestalozzi Garden including a strawbale classroom including rooflights, storage shed, greenhouse and formation of new vehicular access and pedestrian accesses. Pestalozzi Garden, Pestalozzi International Village, Sedlescombe. According to the Architect's letter, "The main changes to this application are the removal of the vehicular access in the southern edge which formed part of the estate management yard of a subsequent application, along with the revised location of the strawbale classroom, shed and greenhouse. These buildings have now been moved to the northern side of the garden to provide more distance between the proposals and the nearest residential property, as well as concentrating all built forms towards the centre of the site. Formal vehicular access to the garden is not required. However, in the event of deliveries or a disabled user of the garden, we propose to retain a small portion of the existing car park as shown on drawing number 1511/005."

8.2 RR/2007/397/P AMENDED PLANS Part demolition of existing and construction of replacement buildings including improved conference, dining, administration and education facilities, accommodation including roof lights and associated works including parking and alteration to an existing access. Pestalozzi International Village, Sedlescombe. According to the Architect's letter, "These plans address two amendments to the application. The first of these is the landscape levels being adjusted to the area between the proposed car park and South Lodge. This has been given careful consideration, especially the views from South Lodge including their extension."

"The second change is the estate management yard and building being moved to the site of the former Inspiration House. The yard is located alongside the existing mature trees on the site of Inspiration House, and screened by a new orchard west of the building. Some of the activities within the building have been relocated to minimise the area of the yard. The refuse collection will be consolidated in the kitchen yard rather than providing duplicate facilities in the estate management area. To clarify, therefore, the estate management yard and building are now therefore not located at the south entrance of the site and have been moved to the former site (with a planning permission still valid) of Inspiration House."
