3.21- 3.23 Carstone
We welcome the reference to Carstone. It is important that provision should be made to protect historic sources of building stone from sterilisation from non-minerals development or from overuse as fill etc. in order that they might be used for the future repair of historic properties or even for new build using traditional vernacular. The plan should provide an appropriate Policy which would facilitate the reopening of historic sources of building stone where they are needed for the future repair of historic properties/ building in the traditional vernacular.
Ensure provision is made for the use of Carstone in repairs of historic buildings and for new build in the traditional vernacular materials.
