This post is really just a reminder to residents of Wye that the consultation deadline for the Neighbourhood Plan is on Friday 13th March.
I filled in my form yesterday. I declared myself to be supportive of the policies on housing (and most of the rest of the plan in fact). Most of the comments I made were related to the cycle path, renewable energy, and the specific nature of the policies relating to the main college building. You can see them here NPJasperthoughts.
For a while I considered suggesting a further policy relating to double glazing in conservation areas. Currently English Heritage does not permit double glazing which seems a bit crazy given climate change.
However, having read the English Heritage document on traditional windows, I am partially persuaded that there is good reason for the policy. While there is some good double glazing, there is also some awful stuff out there.
We may all fry in +4 degrees (or freeze in old houses!), but at least the buildings will look nice!
