Here is where cars for certain residents in the new proposed building will be allowed to be parked permanently. The application states that other residents and visitors will not be allowed to park, but must find public parking in the town. It is not clear how this will be monitored. The tree providing the shade for this area in the summer will be removed, together with a significant part of the visible lawn, which has been there since the late 17th Century.
How far the remaining lawn will continue to flourish when completely shaded by a three-storey building to the South is also unclear.
On the right is another view of the area which is likely to be used for permanent parking.
