Croydon conservation area consultation launched
11/08/2012 15:52:00

Croydon Council is currently consulting on a draft 'Conservation Area General Guidance' document that will apply to all of Croydon’s 21 conservation areas and draft 'Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plans' that will focus on the Chatsworth Road and Wellesley Road (North) Conservation Areas (plus a couple from outside my constituency).

Under the 1990 Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act, a Conservation Area is an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character and appearance of which is desirable to preserve and enhance.

The draft 'Conservation Area General Guidance' is important as it provides general guidance for development in Conservation Areas and, among other things, outlines the process of applying for planning consent in those areas.

The draft 'Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans' outline the special character of the Conservation Areas and provide additional guidance for development.

How to view the documents:

• Online at www.croydon.gov.uk/caamps.

• At all Croydon libraries.

• At a drop-in event on the 6th September from 13:00-16:00 and 17:00-20:00 at the Croydon Town Hall, Katherine Street, Croydon, CR9 3JS

You can add your thoughts to the consultation in one of the following ways:

• By email: LDF@croydon.gov.uk

• By post: Spatial Planning, 18th Floor, Taberner House, Park Lane, Croydon CR0 1JT

• In writing at the drop-in event on the 6th September.

The deadline for receipt of comments is Friday 28th September.

All comments and suggested amendments to the documents will be considered by the Council for the final documents, which are due to be adopted in early 2013.

This consultation is part of a process currently being undertaken by the Council to write and update Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plans (CAAMPs) for all of Croydon’s Conservation areas. It is intended that consultations for other CAAMPs will take place over the next two years.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
