Conservation Area Appraisals - Consideration of Chelmsford Avenue Almshouses for Conservation Area Designation
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: For Determination
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) setting out the initial work, and subsequent recommendations, undertaken by heritage consultants, Purcell, on behalf of the Council, to review the potential of Chelmsford Avenue Almshouses for Conservation Area status.
That the initial report and accompanying plan (Appendix A and B to the submitted officer report) from Purcell, which sets out a potential area to consider for Conservation Area designation (Chelmsford Avenue Almshouses) be noted and that this report and the plan be subject to an initial stage of public consultation.
Reason for Decision
To facilitate public consultation on the initial report from independent heritage expects Purcell, and to seek the views of local residents on the proposal to consider Chelmsford Avenue Almshouses for designation as a Conservation Area.
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 Chelmsford Avenue Almshouses is not progressed.
