Historic buildings and planning policies

David Peace

CBA Occasional Papers No. 10 (1979)

ISBN 0 900312 91 2


Title page of report 10

This document arises out of the longstanding concern of the CBA for historic buildings of all kinds. It serves as a guide to action by planning authorities, the Department of the Environment, amenity and archaeological societies, and others who can help to safeguard our heritage. Suggestions for remedying the various deficiencies in the machinery are made under eight main headings and are summarized at the end.

The CBA is one of the six national bodies which must be consulted on applications to demolish listed buildings, and whose views must be taken into account by the authorities. David Peace has been for 30 years an architect planner in local government in the Counties of Staffordshire and Cambridgeshire. As such he has been especially concerned with conservation of the environment, and is the author of A guide to historic buildings law. Since 1965 he has been a coopted member of the Council for British Archaeology, and he has also served on the Council of the Royal Town Planning Institute. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and in 1977 was made an MBE.
