Have your say on proposals for Malvern Wells Conservation Area
Residents from across the Malvern Hills district are being encouraged to have their say on potential changes to the Malvern Wells Conservation Area.
As part of a review, Malvern Hills District Council is proposing to separate the existing Malvern Wells Conservation Area into two areas- Malvern Wells and Little Malvern.
The Malvern Wells Conservation Area was designated in 1973 under the Civic Amenities Act 1967 as an ‘area of special architectural and/or historic interest’ and was extended in 1995 to include Little Malvern.
The review proposes alterations to the existing boundary to better reflect the special historic and architectural value of the area.
Residents are being asked to have their say as part of a consultation which will run from 22 July to 6 September.
A public meeting will also be held on 25 July at the Wyche Institute, Old Wyche Road, Malvern, at 6pm where the council’s Heritage Manager and Conservation Officer will present the review and answer any questions.
Cllr David Harrison, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Infrastructure at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “It is vital to consistently review the areas of conservation in our district in order to preserve their history, character and beauty for years to come. We urge residents to have their say and to come along to the meeting.”

Hard copies of the review and character appraisal will be available at Malvern Library and the Council House, Malvern.
