The policy is fine as it is, but experience suggests the council is unwilling to enforce it.  Woodins in Church Road, Hartley is now totally hemmed in by modern housing, for example.

I think the local list referred to in section 7.33 ought to include other features and not just buildings which have heritage value, for example gates and railings, dovecotes, vintage advertising signs etc.
