Sadly, Portsmouth's confused approach to Conservation Areas (31 distinct areas, many apparently created just to stop newer materials and nothing to do with conserving historic craftmanship or preserving a look or feel of an area), its lack of a qualified Conservation officer or a valid Local Plan coupled with the total lack of ongoing management of these awareness leaves residents at the mercy of fortune, not knowing whether to upgrade or leave to rot - most go ahead and it is only when a neighbour complains, as we the situation in this case, any action is taken.
