General permitted development rights consultation
#21
Fair point. But I've already had my first enquiry regarding retrofitting one to a property in a Conservation Area. Maybe it'll be my last?

Don't get one of the wood chip pellet things. The majority of the pellets are imported from Scandinavia. The extent of processing and delivery within Britain makes a coal boiler more 'friendly' if it is fired from British coal. One of my boroughs has done a massive amount of work on this are it is planning to develop a combined heat and power station for a redeveloped town centre. The scale of this station is based upon the volume of clippings from the borough's parks and buying in some waste from the surrounding borough's parks services. Currently they are planting a number of new trees. The power station is meant to be designed in a way that it can be converted to hydrogen and switched between various sources to increase its life.

If you are not on a gas main you are a bit stuffed.

I have worked on several schemes where a developer has proposed an energy scheme involving the burning of wood-chip pellets. The sustainability figures are worked out using the relationsip of the wood-chip pellet depot to the development site (i.e. miles, transport method etc) and do not include anything relating to how the wood-chip pellets reached the depot in the first place.

as a matter of permitted development interest (is there such a thing!)

following on from another thread... are there too many get out and wriggle out clauses in planning?

Following on to this (dated) thread, can anyone point me to the latest historic conservation & planning advice regarding installation of ground source heat pumps (the trenched version, circa 1m depths, with water/antifreeze mixes in coiled tubing or similar) with regards to G2/G2* etc listed properties where elements of landscaping are also covered by listing, along with outbuildings within the curtilage of the listing - but possibly not covering the other areas of the plot so enclosed? They can be very extensive and it concerns me that these, and other similar trenching, could be affecting our buried heritage considerably.

The planning portal puts ground source heat pumps into permitted development rights but does not say how this conclusion was reached or by what authority. It then makes out that for listed buildings there may be local requirements and the developer should contact somebody. If the developer had any wit they would construct what ever they want and call it a ground source heat pump and say that they heard a rumour that it was a permitted right in the event that they were challenged.
