Paragraph 2.7 Box 1 Para 34.3.63 and 34.3.64

We suggest that a Conservation Assessment should be provided for any application relating to a designated heritage asset in the form of a listed building or where demolition is proposed in a Conservation Area.  Many of the same considerations apply to unlisted buildings of similar age, style and construction which are surely also worthy of protection on the same grounds.

We support the continuation of restrictions on building under listed buildings. We are concerned about the application of the reference to “original”, and suggest that the reference base position should be the position as in 1948.
