Posted by lynne webbtotally agree with both of you. I watched a TV program about Bath, after London they get the most visitors, they've really looked after their old buildings, a lovely place to visit. All we've got are glass buildings and shops.
Unfortunately when we are talking about the Planning Department we forget one thing. Big Brother. I have been involved with many planning applications. First plans are presented. Then they are opposed. Then they go to appeal. They are almost always passed on appeal.

I my teens I lived in Bristol for a short while, a friend had a flat in Bath. He lived on the top floor of a lovely old Georgian house along the same lines at those of the Royal Crescent. What I found great about the house was his living room floor differed in height 6 inches from one end to the other.
In the bedroom he had his bed on two bricks at the one end to level it up. A survey had been done on the entire house and it was supposed to be safe. As much as I loved the place I was glad I didn't live there.
