DM6 We would recommend the same amendments to the changes proposed to paragraph 9.61: "Decisions about proposed development which would harm the significance of a heritage asset will be taken having regard to the NPPF." This is to ensure that all relevant paragraphs of the NPPF are taken into account, including paragraph 135 relating to non-designated heritage assets. We also would note that the requirements in paragraph 133 in particular are not a 'balancing exercise' but specify that the public benefits have to be substantial and outweigh the harm or loss.
