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 the Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Growth and Housing) presenting the Hamlet Court Road Conservation Area Appraisal produced for the Council by independent heritage experts, Purcell, proposing that part of Hamlet Court Road (the area south of London Road and north of St Helen’s Road) for Conservation Area status, following recent public consultation.




1. That the responses to the consultation on the draft Hamlet Court Road Conservation Area Appraisal, set out at Appendix 3 to the submitted report, be noted.


2. That the Hamlet Court Road Conservation Area Appraisal, set out at Appendix 1 to the report, be adopted and that an area of Hamlet Court Road, as set out in Appendix 2 to the report, be designated as a Conservation Area.


Reasons for decision:


To adopt the proposed Conservation Area (Hamlet Court Road, South of London Road and north of St Helens Road).  The area proposed for Conservation Area status meets the requirements of the NPPF (2019) (Paragraph 186) concerning the designation of Conservation Areas.


Other options:


Not to designate Hamlet Court Road  as a Conservation Area.  This would be contrary to the recommendations of the Conservation Area Appraisal, comments from Historic England and other comments received during the public consultation.
