Many old properties are in need of urgent refurbishment but are being stopped from going ahead because of 'laws' imposed by English Heritage and National Trust and backed up by local authorities.  As a result many properties are derelict and an eyesore to the local community.  These regulations/laws normally insist only original materials be used – but these are not always available – except at great cost. One example of this is Politmore House near Exeter which had sufficient funds to carry out necessary repairs, but delays and unreasonable demands by English Heritage mean that the building is in a worse state now than when proposals were originally put forward

Why is this idea important?

Because it would allow these buildings in good condition and available to the local community.
