Rushmere House

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what assessment he has made of the effect of the proposed developing of Rushmere House, Cadogan Park, on the preservation of the Malone Conservation Area. (115848)

The effect of the proposed extension to Rushmere House is assessed against a number of relevant planning policies including policy BH12 of Planning Policy Statement 6—Archaeology and the Built Heritage. BH12 provides the policy context for assessing whether new development is acceptable or not within a conservation area such as the Malone Conservation area. This assessment, which is well advanced, is being carried out with the assistance of a consultant conservation area architect.
