A SHOREHAM-based architect has been awarded for a new development that has been praised as an ‘attractive’ build by the Shoreham Society.

Architect James Brecknell was presented with a plaque by the society for designing a row of homes on Ship Street that ‘conserve the built environment’.

Chairman Gerard Rosenberg said the plaques were created to recognise new builds that are in keeping with the town.

He said: “We felt the Ship Street build was done to a high spec and a very attractive row of buildings, not too high, and the garages are in the front, in the past there was a car park that was pretty unsightly.”

The society set up a sub committee to consider new builds and award those that complement the area.

“We’re trying to convey that the Shoreham Society is about progress and not a nimby organisation,” said Mr Rosenberg.

Christopher Harris, who is also serves on the sub committee, presented the award with Mr Rosenberg.
