Dunton Green Parish Council broadly supports this policy. However, some clarification is required about who decides what buildings or features are ‘detrimental’; who is the arbiter of taste? The assertion that local wood can be used for biomass boilers is somewhat simplistic. What plans are there for replacement of wood felled for the purpose? Surely some details of what types of wood can actually be used etc should be included if this is being cited as a means of supporting the local economy?
