Update 13 July 2016 The applicant has withdrawn this application. It is unlikley that it would have gained approval from council planners. Shropshire Council’s conservation team said the proposal would “introduce an incongruous and alien roof form that is not traditional” into the conservation area. I think that’s an understatement of the damage this proposal would have caused. I am glad to see the back of this appalling application. Main article 23 June 2016 The Snicketts is a quiet pedestrian alley between Corve Street and Portcullis Lane. The converted industrial buildings form a pleasant group of properties and are much in keeping with the historic character of the area. That may change if a roof garden is allowed. An application has been submitted to remove the pitched roof of No. 2 and replace it with a roof garden, screened by a 1.6m high brick wall (16/02345/FUL). The two images below show the existing property and what is proposed. I find this proposal really rather shocking.
