We’re a bit taken aback by the new doors on the former Heywoods premises at the top of the High Street. They seem so out-of-keeping in a street of shops that we’ve had a look at the original planning permission. Give or take a bit, the doors are, indeed, as intended. It appears that the two double doors are entrances to bin stores (presumably that’s why the ventilation grills above them). The single door is apparently a residential door to the flats above and behind. Given the council’s stated wish is to preserve the Edwardian and Victorian characteristics of the High Street, we reckon that planning permission for this frontage should never have been granted.
