A proposal to build three three-storey houses in Little Common has been described as ‘appalling’ and ‘totally unacceptable.

Padstone Property Investments ltd has applied to Rother District Council to build three houses on a piece of land off the A259 next to St Mark’s Church.

Mike Hills, of Cowdray Park Road, is against the plans as he sees it as more green space taken for housing.

“This is an appalling and totally inappropriate use of a piece of land more suitable as a small garden and seating area really,” he said in a letter to the Observer.

“The developers are Padstone Property Investments ltd based in South Woodford,London,E18 so they really care about the area we live in don’t they?

“The clue is in the name ‘Investments’.”

No objections have been made to the council yet to the plan to build three terraced houses with an area of tarmac at the front and a bin store.

The developers applied for permission on February 4, and a decision is due by April 24.

The application can be viewed here.
