The Council [[Image:Blenheim Grove comparison - flat.jpg|right|thumb|300px]]====Blenheim Grove===='''February 2018:''' [[Media:640_330_12_16BlenheimGrove_DesignSummary_290118.pdf|A plan to demolish double the height of the Arcade two storey art deco building and create a new squareat 12-16 Blenheim Grove]] is being made.

They will summarise them and put to the Council are also considering demolition when they apply for planning permission very soon. '''COMMENT: '''This plan does not 'preserve and enhance' the nature and character of the town centre Conservation Area as it would harm the low rise nature of the Art Deco cluster around the station, significantly change the sense of place to which it contributes, it would diminish the sight of the sky when walking along the pavement, create another narrow canyon like street, and introduce potential for more conflict between new residents and town centre uses in that vicinity:* The plan would damage the nature of the low rise two storey art deco building, which is one of a unique cluster of art deco buildings in central Rye Lane. This is especially important on the corner of boundary between the two conservation areas - Rye Lane and Blenheim Holly Grove.* Extending this building would, and together with the approved extension of its companion Art Deco building on the corner of Rye Lane , create a canyon effect, and reduce even more the sky in the town centre area which has only narrow streets. Building upwards would reduce significantly the visible sky for pedestrians, diminishing health and Holly Grovewellbeing. This has revealed mixed views about whether * The massing image in the plans gives a misleading impression of the heights of the building in relation to demolish the arcade opposite side of the street. At 4 stories it is higher than the right where two thirds of the buildings are 2 or restructure 3 stories. See the images from the plans showing the comparison between the street now and as it, but very strong support to retain would be.* The extra two floors would be residential accommodation. The conflict between residential amenity and restore all the other Art Deco buildingsbusiness uses in that area is now well recognised. The display panel below development is in close proximity to the first public collection flow of people between the pictures leisure businesses there. * There would be six ‘unaffordable’ flats (that is they would not be 'affordable’) So the destruction of the buildings. Further details nature of this part of each two Conservation Areas would not contribute social housing the absence of them and their preservation and restoration which is being preparedat the heart of the housing crisis.
