The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) presenting an updated Conservation Area Appraisal for the Crowstone Conservation Area for consideration.
1. That the adoption of the updated Conservation Area Appraisal for Crowstone Conservation Area, as set out in Appendix 1 to the submitted report, be approved.
2. That public consultation take place on the Article 4 Direction proposed for the Crowstone Conservation Area and that a subsequent decision on confirmation of the Article 4 Direction be delegated to the Executive Director (Environment and Place), in consultation with the Executive Councillors for Arts, Culture, Heritage & Leisure and Housing and Planning.
Reasons for decision:
The Crowstone Conservation Area has been appraised as part of this work, to provide up to date evidence on the area and any issues affecting it. Public consultation was undertaken on a draft appraisal as part of preparing the current document. The appraisal provides an up to date management plan to help guide appropriate and sympathetic change within the area and highlight opportunities to enhance the character and appearance.
Not to adopt the Crowstone Conservation Area Appraisal and take forward the Article 4 Direction. This would be contrary to the recommendations within the Appraisal, produced by independents heritage experts Purcell.
