Rendered masonry removal results in improved heritage asset

Listed building consent has been secured for the removal of 19th century render to two grade II listed cottages in a Derbyshire conservation area because it would improve their overall appearance.

Part of the render had already been removed on one of the properties, an inspector recorded, and this had exposed underlying brickwork and stonework which was sound and of reasonable quality. The appellant intended to clean and re-point the bricks and stones and whilst other properties in the village retained a rendered finish this was not based on a comprehensive architectural concept. Although the render did mark part of the historic evolution of the two properties it was not of any particular architectural value such that overall their quality, and the character of the conservation area, would be enhanced.
