Public examination of the draft policy for the protection of public houses and other uses which provide a wider social role, and a policy regarding character and use was held on Wednesday 1 May in the Small Hall at Kensington Town Hall.
The Council received the Inspector's report which confirms that the two planning policies put forward by the Council have been found sound subject to some amendments suggested by the Council. These are for the protection of public houses and other uses which make life local, and for the use of a property to be assessed as to whether it contributes to the character of a conservation area.
