This is a conservation area.
The design and materials used are incongruous with the terrace within a CA. They are cheap and industrial looking and there bulk and mass is incongruous.

Insufficient detail of the materials and finish have been supplied but the gates should reflect the Victorian nature of the street and should mimic the architectural features (mainly arches) that predominate (as shown in the street profiles submitted with the application).

I fear that wooden tongue and groove has been chosen as the cheapest option .Double or triple arched gates would be better and open iron gates even better with reduced bulk and mass than solid wooden gates. Iron gates could pick up on the Victorian arch feature better.
