Background to Historic England’s comment

Sadly, due to high volumes of applications the fate of this planning application will be left to the Council. The following is feedback from Historic England regarding a query to its letter on this planning application;

“Unfortunately due to the high number of applications we receive in London, Historic England is unable to provide detailed comments for all applications received.  Where it is felt that the local planning authority and its own Conservation Officer are capable of handling an application without detailed advice from ourselves, we send what is known as a non-intervention letter.  This letter states that ‘This application should be determined in accordance with national and local policy guidance, and on the basis of your specialist conservation advice’.  We are not saying that we don’t have any comments on the application, we are instead saying that we are satisfied that the local authorities own conservation officer can provide appropriate advice”.

Any thoughts regarding this?
