Nice programme on the history of the system of listing buildings and conservation. Interesting section of the programme on how much tourism is created by historic buildings in Bath. Obviously on a much smaller scale, but Margate could, if it is careful, create a similar scaled down draw for the Old Town.
It is utterly shocking not only the destruction of swathes of fine buildings, but the replacement with utter rubbish. Personally, I'd like to see more good quality modern architectural proposals backed up with enforcement so that historic buildings that remain are not left to rot.
