Policy MHE1: Non-Designated Heritage Assets


To be supported proposals which affect a non-designated heritage asset (a building or structure on the Local List [following adoption by Malvern Hills District Council]) must demonstrate how they protect or enhance the heritage asset.
To be supported, the renovation or alteration of a non-designated heritage asset (building or structure) must be designed sensitively, and with careful regard to the heritage asset’s historical and architectural interest and setting.
Where a proposal would result in harm to the significance of a non-designated heritage asset the scale of the harm and the significance of the asset must be balanced against the benefits of the proposal.


Policy MHE2: Neighbourhood Heritage Areas


The following areas contain some important architectural features from particular development periods in the evolution of Malvern and are designated as Neighbourhood Heritage Areas (NHA), shown at Figure 5.4 and on Figures 5.4.1 to 5.4.5 in Appendix 5.5.
NHA01: Belmont Road
NHA02: Howsell Road
NHA03: Madresfield Road
NHA04: Werstan Close
NHA05: Newtown Road
To be supported, proposals for development or change of use in an NHA must demonstrate how they recognise its special local architectural and historic interest and make a positive contribution to its local character and distinctiveness.
