These buildings, which are privately owned, are subject to a Preservation Order made under section 8 of the National Monuments Act 1930, as amended. As required under section 14 of that Act, I have given consent to the owners for certain works to preserve the structure of the buildings. I understand that these works are ongoing and I have received no indication of any breach of the terms of the related consent.
