Listed v Unlisted Buildings
34.3.64 quotes detrimental impact on the hierarchy of historic floor levels as the reason for not allowing basements to be built under listed buildings.
In Norland, we have unlisted houses which predate some of those listed eg South end of Addison Avenue. We also have houses built at much the same date as most of those listed, which are not listed because they are not of such merit, but to which the same arguments about hierarchy of historic floor levels would apply (on Princedale Road, Queensdale Road, Queensdale Walk, Queensdale Place, Portland Road).
This  argument against allowing basments under Listed Buildings, should equally apply to these.
