Decision details

Hamlet Court Road draft Conservation Area Designation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommmend Forward to Council

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Cabinet considered a report of Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Growth and Housing) concerning the draft Conservation Area Appraisal produced on behalf of the Council by independent heritage experts, Purcell, assessing the potential of Hamlet Court Road for Conservation Area status and set out the proposed approach to public consultation.




1. That the draft Conservation Area Appraisal from Purcell, as set out in Appendix A to the submitted report, setting out a potential area for Conservation Area designation at Hamlet Court Road, be noted and that the draft Appraisal be approved for public consultation.


Reasons for Decision:


To facilitate public consultation on the draft appraisal from independent heritage expects Purcell, and to seek the views of local residents and businesses on the proposal to consider Hamlet Court Road for designation as a Conservation Area.


Other Options:


Not to publically consult on the draft Appraisal, and not to progress further work on the potential for a Conservation Area designation at Hamlet Court Road..  This would be contrary to the recommendations of Purcell based on the initial work undertaken to date and the outcome of the public consultation, and would not allow for public consultation on the appraisal. By moving forward with public consultation, it will be possible to collate the views of interested parties to determine whether a Conservation Area should be adopted at Hamlet Court Road.
