Representation ID: 2400

Received: 03/03/2016

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

We note the rationale to not duplicate the policies contained elsewhere.
We would suggest deleting "...and much of the archaeology in these locations is likely therefore to have been destroyed" from paragraph 91 as even previously developed sites have potential for archaeology and the focus should be on those sites of high potential.

Representation ID: 2405

Received: 03/03/2016

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 4 of Policy PA6 relates to energy efficiency and relates to existing development. We note that versions of this paragraph appear under other policy areas and opportunity sites, so the following comments also apply.
Listed buildings, buildings in conservation areas and scheduled monuments are exempted from the need to comply with energy efficiency requirements of the Regulations where compliance would unacceptably alter their character and appearance. Special considerations under Part L are also given to locally listed buildings, buildings of architectural and historic interest within registered parks and gardens and the curtilages of scheduled monuments, and buildings of traditional construction with permeable fabric that both absorbs and readily allows the evaporation of moisture. Any policy encouraging energy efficiency should note that the application will be different in relation to these classes of buildings. Further information can be found in the Historic England advice Energy Efficiency and Historic Buildings -Application of Part L of the Building Regulations to historically and traditionally constructed buildings https://historicengland.org.uk/images-books/publications/energy-efficiency-historic-buildings-ptl/. This similarly applies to Policy PA1, PA2, PA3, PA4, PA5, PA7, CS1, PA8 and PA9.
