Conservation Area Appraisals

The conservation section has embarked upon a programme of conservation area appraisals and management strategies including a review of the boundaries. 

Every local authority is obliged to undertake this work under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.   

The purpose of the review and appraisal is to:

  • Identify and reassess the special qualities of the conservation area.
  • Look at the effectiveness of the boundaries and assess whether they should be altered, extended or reduced.
  • Engage and consult the local community and businesses during the process.
  • Prepare a strategy for its future management.  

Designated Conservation Area review and appraisals

Listed below are the appraisals which have now been formally adopted.

Comment on Current Reviews

Newland Conservation Area Review - Public Consultation
As part of our statutory duties as a Local Planning Authority we are currently reviewing the Newland Conservation Area. The conservation area was originally designated in 1997, and this review is considering whether the boundary as drawn then is still appropriate. To accompany this work, a Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan has been drafted to explain the special interest of the area and to safeguard its future preservation and enhancement.
 
Following a review of the Conservation Area and consideration by the Council's Executive Committee on 26 March 2019 the existing boundaries are thought to be appropriate and no alterations to the Newland Conservation Area Boundaries are proposed.
 
The public consultation period on the review will begin on Monday 3rd June and ends 26th July 2019. There will be a public meeting in the Boardroom at The Beauchamp Community, Newland on Thursday 6th June 2019, starting at 6:30pm, which will include a presentation of the review with an opportunity to ask questions. The consultation documents are available to view below:
 
Details of how to submit your comments will be made available here once the consultation period starts.
