PLANNING POLICY

The material properties of cast iron have long been recognised and it is these which make it particularly suitable for the rainwater systems of listed buildings and wherever conservation is an issue.

In its Planning Policy Guidance (PPG 15), the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, Department of National Heritage, acknowledges the importance of specifying cast iron replacement of the rainwater systems on such buildings of historical significance.

No other material can match the character, durability, strength or appeal of cast iron and - most importantly - only cast iron can preserve the intentions of the original architect and the aesthetic integrity of the building.
