I catalogue planning applications that threaten historic buildings or streets in Yorkshire. If an application for demolition is submitted, I will post it here.
I care a great deal about historic buildings and the landscape that they are integral to in Yorkshire.
The dominance of the car, the industrialised mass production of buildings and the globalisation of style mean that the type of architecture and urbanism we once had will never be replaced.
So no, it is not conservative (with a small c) to want to protect historic buildings. On the contrary it is anti-globalist, anti-materialist, and dare I say it, anti-capitalist.
