Mike Holland has withdrawn his application for consent and agreed to reinstate the historic part of the Old Stable Block destroyed in his development.

Tim Slaney, Director of Planning for the South Downs National Park Authority, said:

"We are pleased that the applicant has withdrawn these applications and also advised us that they intend to restore that part of the listed building.

"We have asked the applicant to submit the necessary listed building application to allow this work to take place and encourage them to work closely with us to make sure that restoration is as accurate as possible.

"We take breaches of planning seriously and have advised that should the applicant fail to submit this application by the end of September we will look to take further enforcement action.”

This is an excellent result and SPS are delighted to have been a part of the work to achieve it.
