Suffolk Preservation Society:

Should the planning authority proceed to determine the application, in its current form without the Society being afforded an opportunity to consider the matter comprehensively , with the updated report on the buildings condition (Herman De Stern, after the fire) and without an opportunity to inspect the building , then it is likely that we will seek formal legal opinion on this matter in order to establish the validity of any permission which might be granted
