One good thing approved at Tuesday’s Full District Council was the reintroduction of a new “local list”.
These are buildings or items of street furniture not considered valuable enough to get national “Listed” status but will be shown on a new local list. This will give them some protection from being demolished or diminished. There are over100 items.
