It is amazing that Brighton and Hove City Council and planners can pass that monstrosity of Frank Gehry's design for the King Alfred site and the loft conversion on my two-bed (plus a "box room") house that I needed has been turned down.

I look after my elderly mother and a bit more room would be very nice. A couple of windows in my roof isn't going to affect or overlook anyone.
