34.3.63           The Society considers 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.  We appreciate that this overlaps with conservation           policies but consider for clarity it should also be included here.

 

34.3.65           As it stands this would appear to permit a basement where there are           differing levels under a designated heritage asset.  The wording     should say that no basements will be allowed under a listed    building.  Nor should any basements be permitted within the setting of           a listed building if this harms that setting.  This latter condition may             apply to adjacent properties as well as the listed building itself.  It          should be clear that unless there are exceptional circumstances          consent will not be granted, as currently worded this is not clear.
