CONSULTATION ON DRAFT CONSERVATION AREA APPRAISALS AND MANAGEMENT PLAN SPDs
A Conservation Area is 'an area of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance'. There are eight Conservation areas in Cannock Chase District and the Council has been working towards an Appraisal and Management Plan for each one in accordance with legislation and policy.
Appraisals are the first stage in the process, setting out the history and character of each area, from which Management Plans follow, making recommendations for their conservation and enhancement to guide development management. Each Management Plan builds on the Council’s adopted generic ‘Conservation Areas Management Plan’ (a package of measures available to the Council to apply to all of its Conservation Areas) by setting out specific policies for each Area based on the recommendations in each Appraisal.
Draft documents have been prepared for the above Conservation Areas and approved for consultation by the Cabinet of Cannock Chase Council on October 4th 2018.
The documents can be viewed below and at The Civic Centre, Beecroft Road, Cannock and public libraries at Rugeley and Brereton during normal opening hours.
Public consultation will start on Monday 5th November 2018 and continue for 6 weeks till Monday 17th December 2018. Everyone living or working in each Conservation Area (or more widely if interested) is now invited to have their say.
Comments should be sent either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Planning Policy, Cannock Chase Council, Civic Centre, PO Box 28, Beecroft Road, Cannock WS11 1BG.
All comments received will be reported to a future Cabinet meeting for updating the documents as appropriate prior to their final adoption. For all submitted comments we are unable to treat views confidentially. Names will be made public but contact details will not be disclosed.
The Management Plans, when adopted as Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD), will be used as a guide in the determination of planning applications and for the enhancement of each Area in a way beneficial to its special interest.
