The train station is quite a nice building to be fair.

From the southern bit of Sutton Park I've only ever noticed one or two distant tower blocks to the south (guessing the aforementioned Erdington blocks) and a housing estate to the south west. For the most part you feel like you could be in the middle of the countryside.

Nothing wrong with the station both train and pub but the towers on the site opposite Gracechurch will not affect anything you have cited as being sensitive.

It will - the view from the park. As Butters said, you feel like you could be in the middle of the countryside. I and '000's of others go there every day for precisely that reason. Surely that is worth something?

It is but the fact you can see 3 towers from a small portion of the park doesn't harm the feeling of being in the countryside from the majority of the park. Which is the point. If the whole park was blighted by the towers i would agree but it won't be.
