Retention and Re-Use of Older Buildings of Significance which are not Protected
The re-use of older buildings of significance is a central element in the conservation of the built heritage of the city and important to the achievement of sustainability. In assessing applications to demolish older buildings which are not protected, the planning authority will actively seek the retention and re-use of buildings/ structures of historic, architectural, cultural, artistic and/or local interest or buildings which make a positive contribution to the character and identity of streetscapes and the sustainable development of the city. Where the planning authority accepts the principle of demolition a detailed written and photographic inventory of the building shall be required for record purposes.
