Decision details

Consideration of Hamlet Court Road for Conservation Area Designation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Growth and Housing) setting out details of the initial work (and subsequent recommendations) undertaken by independent heritage consultants, Purcell, on behalf of the Council, to review the potential of Hamlet Court Road for Conservation Area status. The report also sought approval on the proposed approach to consulting on Purcell’s initial report, and boundary considerations, for this area.




That the initial report and accompanying plan (Appendices A and B, to the submitted report) from Purcell, which sets out a potential area to consider for Conservation Area designation at Hamlet Court Road, be approved for an initial stage of public consultation.


Reasons for Decision


To facilitate public consultation on the initial report from independent heritage experts 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


That the initial report from independent heritage experts Purcell is not publically consulted on, and further work into the potential for a Conservation Area designation at Hamlet Court Road is not further progressed. This would, however, be contrary to the recommendations of Purcell based on the initial work undertaken to date.
