GRADE: II APPLICATION NO: 20/1772/LBC & 20/1771/FUL

Additional Information received 10th November 2020:

The photographs show the gates more clearly and indicate the detailing and should form part of any forthcoming approval. In addition, in view of the fact that there is not a more detailed scaled plan it is suggested that we might want to condition any forthcoming approval as detailed below:

SUGGESTED CONDITION: LBC1N; PL2;

Notwithstanding the submitted Drawing No. 02A and the photographs dated 9th November 2020, the new gates shall match those at Exeter Dissenters Burial Ground in all respects, including sections, mouldings and profiles. The works shall be implemented in accordance with the approved details.
(Reason - To safeguard the architectural and historic character of the building in accordance with Policy EN9 - Development Affecting a Designated Heritage Asset of the Adopted East Devon Local Plan 2013-2031.)

LISTED BUILDING CONSENT
PLANNING APPLICATION AFFECTING LISTED BUILDING

ADDRESS: Gulliford Burial Ground, Strawberry Hill, Lympstone

GRADE: II APPLICATION NO: 20/1772/LBC & 20/1771/FUL

PROPOSAL: Replacement of wooden gates with wrought iron gates

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF HISTORIC CHARACTER/ ARCHITECTURAL MERIT:

The listing description refers to 'Burial ground bounded by perimeter wall, partly of random rubble limestone, and partly of brick, and entered from Meeting Lane through gates (now damaged), with square profile-stone piers surmounted by ball caps, one lying on the ground?' Extract 12.06.86

The gates and capping were replaced under 96/P1146/LBC.

HOW WILL PROPOSED ALTERATIONS AFFECT HISTORIC CHARACTER OF BUILDING AND ITS SETTING:

A Friends of Gulliford group has been formed and has been successful in being offered a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for the repair of the walls, the most damaged tombs and the installation of new gates.

This application relates to the replacement of the existing timber entrance gates with wrought iron gates. The existing gates are modern and are in poor condition and, when closed, currently prevent views into the cemetery. The proposed gates seek to overcome these issues by providing a longterm solution with the replacement of the gates in wrought iron allowing views into the site and following the pattern of those recently installed at the Exeter Dissenters Burial Ground which was associated with Georges Meeting House. The choice of the exact design of the newly restored Exeter Dissenters burial ground shows the close links between the two sites which have shared history and also families buried at both sites.

There is no objection in principle to the installation of the gates, but more detailed drawings are required to ascertain the exact design, method of fixing etc. If the gates are an exact match to those in Exeter, detailed photographs maybe an alternative, but must show sufficient detail for any forthcoming approval.

PROVISIONAL RECOMMENDATION - PROPOSAL
ACCEPTABLE in principle, but more details of the gates required

20/1772/LBC 20/1771/FUL Gulliford Burial Ground Meeting Lane Lympstone
I have reviewed the documents for the listed building consent 20/1772/LBC and the planning application 20/1771/FUL for replacement of wooden gates with wrought iron gates at Gulliford Burial Ground Meeting Lane Lympstone.
I consider that the addition of Wrought Iron Gates would be an improvement on the wooden gates there at present and therefore support the application
I reserve my final views on this application until I am in full possession of all the relevant arguments for and against.
