The inspector noted that the intended design was in complete contrast to the surrounding area. While conceding that this was not objectionable in principle, he was adamant that important public views should not be harmed. He was concerned that one of the blocks would lie close to a public footpath and would appear plain, bulky and unattractive. It would also restrict views of an important tree in the middle of the site, he added.
