However development notices attached to various telegraph poles within Stewartby Village gave notice that the developer was seeking permission to demolish the remaining kilns and chimneys.

I can understand this. The kilns are literally falling apart and finding a new use for them would be difficult. Similarly the chimneys would become nothing more than 20th century follies and would become more decrepit and dangerous over time, situated slap-bang in the centre of a modern housing estate.
