Devon House Pembroke

This is a Conservation Area part of the setting for the Mill Bridge and the Castle.
To the right of the grossly out of scale, out of place, recent construction is a large "gentlemans residence"of some architectural merit, Devon House. It is surrounded by a mature garden with specimen trees. The wall to the pond is complete and there is a wild margin to the pond.
The Bungalw and hardstanding will cover the vegetated area, it will be built against the pond wall with no buffer strip and no screening from public view. A modern building of no merit except to make money for the developer.
We must rewrite the JUDP to take account of conservation, Conservation Areas and agree a Design Policy for PCC and PCNP.
