A woman has been ordered by the court to pay nearly £10,000 in fines after she built an extension to her home in breach of planning permission and continuously refused planning enforcement warnings and notices.
The Victorian Society (Vic Soc) has released its annual Top 10 Endangered Buildings List which recognises at-risk Victorian and Edwardian buildings and structures throughout England and Wales.

IHBC’s ‘Practice Spotlight’: Crumbling masonry in GII Gothic house cleaned up following S.215 ‘Untidy Sites Notice’ – ‘powers not used enough…’ says the IHBC
A couple must pay more than £1,100 in fines and costs following a S.215 ‘Untidy sites notice’ from South Cambridgeshire, for not carrying out essential repairs to stop a Grade II listed building falling into disrepair, in a strategy that consultant and IHBC adviser Bob Kindred says involves ‘powers not used as often as they might be’.
Do you know your conservation history: Under the areas of the IHBC areas of competence in Philosophy and Legislation/policy it is required that you have an understanding of the relevant conservation approaches and an awareness of their development; Timothy Cantell, planner and writer and a co-founder of SAVE writes about ‘a revolution in heritage conservation’ The Town and Country Planning Act 1968 in Context issue 154.
