On reflection, we agree. Learning from the Wealden Design Guide and our own further studies of precedents in Horam and the surrounding area we have removed the coloured paints from the palette of materials available for facades. There are a few examples of white painted brick facades which we have left in as an option.

We observed that, typically, wooden doors and windows are painted black, white, or dark grey, with the occasional subtle colour for a front door. We have therefore kept a limited and muted palette of colours available for woodwork.
