Question 32/17

Q. I refer to my previous question 26/17 and your response, particularly in respect of the matter relating to works at the Colonnade you did not actually answer the specific question that I asked, namely what dialogue has taken place with Historic England regarding current or proposed works? With all due respect to your Conservation Officer I would have thought it prudent to have engaged with them on what can be a very complex matter often open to interpretation. Surely better to obtain a definitive answer from them rather than face a criminal prosecution? (18/12/2017)

A. The responsibility for listed building control rests with the Local Planning Authority, in this case Rother District Council. Historic England would have no remit as to whether or not works required listed building consent. Historic England are a statutory consultee for applications for alterations to Grade I or II* listed buildings, but as the Colonnade is listed Grade II, would not be involved with this building.
