Biddenham Society opposes plans for Baulk House

Biddenham Society opposes plans for Baulk House

Application 18/01831/FUL to construct a property on a narrow plot between Baulk House and 64 Bromham Road has been opposed by the society.  Baulk House is grade 2 listed and in opposing the application the society has drawn the attention of the planning authority to a recent publication by Historic England

https://historicengland.org.uk/images-books/publications/gpa3-setting-of-heritage-assets/

which sets out the factors to be taken into account when a new build property is to be sited close to a listed building.

The society lists several reasons why the setting of the listed Baulk House would be compromised by the proposal, as well as criticising some poorly presented aspects of the application which fail to illustrate the effects of the new build on various views of, and across, the property.
