    Reason - In order that the Local Planning Authority can gain control over the development and preserve the amenities of the adjoining properties.

  4. Before any work commences on the development, a photographic survey of the buildings shall be carried out in line with the attached guidance note, and a set of the photographs deposited with the Worcestershire Archaeological Services, Planning Advisory Section, Woodbury Hall, University College Worcester, Henwick Grove, Worcester, WR2 6AJ.

    Reason - In order to inspect and record features of historical or archaeological importance which would otherwise be destroyed.
