Andy Southcott’s application to turn the property 34 Ormonde Avenue into three three-bedroom homes, as well as build new access and parking, had been refused by Chichester District Council planners.

He appealed the decision and a Government planning inspectorate has granted him permission.

The application gained a large number of objections, with complaints including a loss of parking and green space along Ormonde Avenue.
