Councillor Maddie Chapman said: “They should come up with a better idea. It looks tacky.”
Councillor Steve Gazzard said: “This is almost a retrospective application.
“Work is well underway. I have concerns about the dark nature of the cladding.
“I think it is quite out of keeping with the area - the area is full of white buildings.
“I don’t know if he intends to paint the cladding.”

She said: “This should be pointed out to planning officers.”
The plans will now be considered by the district council.
