Signed. Heritage should be protected and councils should have the power to hold developers to account. If restoration of the building was a condition of granting planning for the flats, the council should have the power to pull down the flats if conditions weren't met. Could it be that the council thinks it would be an expensive legal fight so are happy to turn their backs
Its the same around our area. Developers get permission with conditions re landscaping or foot paths etc......but these extra bits get forgotten and no one seems to hold the developers to account!
