The Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) has slammed the plans for the “restoration” of Baldwins Farmhouse. They say:
We … object strongly to this listed building consent application and we urge the local authority to refuse permission in the hope that a more sensitive scheme can be agreed.
the existing and proposed drawings submitted by the architect … do not show clearly the nature and extent of the intended works
We would be deeply concerned about the wholesale replacement of the historic fabric of the walls
disruptive and damaging work. .. detrimental to the character of the listed building.
