Listed building planning laws
Owners of listed buildings are subject to some laws which are anomalous and quite unnecessary. Planning consent should not be required over and above those for non-listed household for “temporary” buildings such as sheds, sectional greenhouses, fruitages, summerhouses and fences which are not attached to the property.
Furthermore listed building owners should be allowed to use double glazed units if these do not interfere with the overall appearance of the house and can be fitted within the appropriate window frames.
Why does this idea matter?
Removing planning laws on garden buildings will not only reduce the burden on planning officers, but will also encourage people to grow their own produce thus reducing carbon emissions and food miles
In the case of allowing double glazed windows it will help reduce carbon emissions
