  • Summary

    Planning permission granted. Prominent position on A264 duel carriageway between Horsham and Crawley.


    The proposed plans under reference DC/19/192 aim to remove the existing bar and toilet within the main section of the building along with the modern rear extensions, and will be replaced with a new kitchen and toilet facilities located in the new extension. A take away
    ‘drive thru’ solution will also be provided.

    The new extension is conceived as three sliding bars of accommodation and will run parallel to the existing building and echo its local vernacular of pitched roofs and ‘long barn’ arrangement.

    A glazed link will provide new access into the building whilst the existing main entrance will be retained. Please note there may be potential to alter these plans to suit specific user requirements, subject to planning.
