Representation ID: 11003

SUPPORT Babergh Alliance of Parish & Town Councils (Helen Davies)

Summary:

If there is a clear defined heritage asset that may be compromised by enforcing some climate change policies then the planning department should have some scope to ensure the asset is not spoiled. A typical example might be where a listed building has steel framed windows that are part of its character. If some had to be replaced it would be appropriate to maintain that character rather than require energy efficient alternatives.

Representation ID: 10088

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Many historic buildings are exempt from the need to comply with Part L of Building Regulations. The conservation and enhancement of the historic environment is a key part of what sustainable development is taken to mean within the NPPF. it is not therefore especially helpful to separate out sustainable development issues such as climate change and the historic environment - an integrated approach is required. Some types of energy efficiency methods and renewable energy equipment will have a detrimental impact upon the historic environment and a flexible approach will be required in order to reconcile climate change measures with the conservation of the historic environment. Historic England would advocate against the formation of a climate change policy which does not consider the consequences upon the historic environment.

Representation ID: 9753

SUPPORT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Yes

Representation ID: 9567

COMMENT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

We should protect our surroundings and anticipate extremes which have occurred within our lifetimes. Protection and maintenance is the key here. The Somerset floods a few years ago were a result of not maintaining existing drainage systems. That was a so called "environmental approach" which caused extensive hardship. The '53 East Coast floods will not have the same effect if occurring now but extremes will still occur and their impact should be anticipated.

Solar and wind have a place but also have a relatively short term benefit with serious visual and consistency issues.

More details about Rep ID: 8321

Representation ID: 8306

COMMENT Botesdale & Rickinghall CAP Group (Mr. William Sargeant)

More details about Rep ID: 7617

No because climate change will also dramatically change the character of landscapes and with longer drier periods and more extreme short heavy storms heritage assets are at risk from climate change.

More details about Rep ID: 6459

Representation ID: 6414

COMMENT Stowmarket Society (Mr Michael Smith)

Summary:

Fundamentally, the arrival of new tastes or requirements should not prejudice the very elements of character and history that caused the heritage asset to be identified as such. There is usually a means of reconciling these issues, but the Council will often have to be proactive in giving suitable advice. This means that notwithstanding budgetary constraints they need to maintain the relevant expertise e.g. quantity and quality of Conservation Officers.

More details about Rep ID: 4515

Representation ID: 3709

More details about Rep ID: 3709

Representation ID: 3526

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

The Parish Council would support a flexible approach to protecting a heritage asset however each case should be considered on its own merits, perhaps by a small well informed independent panel which would offer binding opinions over issues of this kind. For instance it might be inappropriate to expect a historic castle to be double glazed or be brought up the level 4 energy efficiency standards described in an earlier part of the consultation document.

SUPPORT Cockfield Parish Council (Mr Doug Reed)

Summary:

Cockfield Parish Council agrees.

More details about Rep ID: 2666

Representation ID: 2627

COMMENT Hadleigh Society (Margaret Woods)

Summary:

A more flexible approach should be adopted as technological advancement regarding climate control continues and thus the destruction of a designated heritage feature for current climate change technologies/requirements is rather short sighted as such damage to the heritage asset under such inflexible climate change criterion/regulation ie irreparable. Thus the policy should have flexibility based upon the inevitability in the long term more sympathetic measures to achieve climate change technology needs.
