Policy CP9: Protecting the historic and natural environment and landscape character

Representation ID: 1897

Received: 24/10/2013

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

Policy welcomed. Would be appropriate to add to part c) '....and their settings in order to conserve their significance' to align wording with the NPPF. Policy could also indicate how a positive strategy for the historic environment will be actively pursued (para 126, NPPF). Reference could be made to ensuring heritage assets are kept in viable use, and their future not put in jeopardy by unsympathetic development.

Consider preparing a heritage strategy to underpin and inform historic environment policies.

Suggest historic environment indicators should include the number of heritage assets at risk (Listed buildings/conservation areas, scheduled monuments/Parks and Gardens).

Policy CP15: High Quality Design

Representation ID: 1898

Received: 24/10/2013

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

We welcome the references to new development being sympathetic to its context and local distinctiveness. The NPPF makes links to the historic environment and new design, and it would be suitable to refer more explicitly to this relationship in the policy, and the supporting text. For instance, the NPPF states that planning policies should ensure that new developments respond to local character and history (para 58), and 'should address the connections between people and places and the integration of new development into the natural, built and historic environment' (para 61).

While we welcome part g), it should read 'great weight will be given' to reflect para 132 of the NPPF appropriately. We suggest that this sentence should be extended at the end to include 'or enhancement'.

Policy DM20: Listed Buildings

Representation ID: 1903

Received: 24/10/2013

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

Policy welcomed. However, suggest wording changes to align with NPPF.

First sentence change: '....where these are sympathetic to its character, setting and significance.'

Paragraph following d) unnecessary (undue prominence to demolition - an exceptional occurrence). Suggest re-wording: 'Changes of use of Listed Buildings and any associated works of alteration will be permitted if this would be in the interests of the restoration, retention or maintenance of the building and/or group of buildings, and there would be no adverse effect on their significance, including the historic, spatial or structural integrity of the building or its setting'. Also, see comments to CP9.

Policy DM22: Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Remains

Representation ID: 1906

Received: 24/10/2013

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

We welcome this policy. In the first paragraph we suggest that the wording is slightly amended to read '...which would adversely affect the significance of a scheduled monument ...'

On page 126 we recommend that the number of scheduled monuments at risk is added as a further indicator. This information is available from the national register published by English Heritage.

ADDITIONAL POLICY
We recommend an additional policy addressing the conservation and enhancement of Registered Parks and Gardens of special Historic Interest.
