Farmhouse in Norland, Calderdale

Quite surprised to see two applications in the Ryburn Valley of West Halifax that entail demolishing robust farm buildings:

Longley Hall in Norland is to be replaced by ‘sustainable dwelling’. Throw in the ‘s’ word, and you can build whatever you like. See presumption in favour of sustainability clause….

You can see that losing this building (bottom right) will damage the streetscape in this hamlet.

ImageSunningdale House is also set for a flattening. Image is from google earth so obscured by shrubs, but it is clearly a robust pastoral building. No need chaps.
