Grade II Listed Building


Grade II Listed Building

Appeal Result: Case overturned

Council: Braintree

Description: The works proposed are the replacement of all current single glazed 6 pane windows with new 2 pane double glazed windows.

Reason given for refusal: "The proposed windows by virtue of the use of double glazing and design detailing, would fail to preserve the special architectural interest of the listed building and would detract from its character, thus resulting in harm to the significance of the heritage asset. The level of harm is considered to be 'less than substantial' and in this case the public benefit does not outweigh this identified harm (paragraph 196 of NPPF). Therefore, the proposal is contrary to paragraph 196 of the NPPF, Section 16 (2) & 66(1) of Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, RLP100 of the Adopted Local Plan, CS5 of the Adopted Core Strategy and Policy LPP60 of the Draft Local Plan."
