Conservation area review

Date Published: 16 October 2017
Residents are being invited to comment on a Conservation Area review for Branston.

North Kesteven District Council is looking to review aspects of the Branston Conservation Area through a local consultation this autumn.

There has been a Conservation Area designation in place in Branston since 1979 however, a detailed appraisal and management plan has not, until now been developed.            

As part of rolling programme of prioritised conservation area reviews, Council officers have prepared a draft conservation area appraisal and management plan for Branston, with proposals to make some changes to the conservation area’s boundaries.

The consultation on the proposed conservation area appraisals and management plans for Branston, which begins on October 23, 2017 proposes revisions to the boundary areas and includes a description of individual character areas and features that are of special interest, and once adopted will be used to develop a robust framework for planning decision making.

The three week public consultation period will also include a a public consultation event at Branston Church Hall, Church Road, Branston on 25 October, 2pm to 7pm.

Council Leader, Councillor Richard Wright said: “It’s important that our heritage and what makes the district so special is preserved, not just for now but for future generations to enjoy. With Branston being one of our oldest adopted conservation areas we hope many residents take part in the consultation.”

Residents can also view copies of the adopted appraisals and management plans and make comment online via www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/conservationareareviews or by popping into the Council Offices, or local Parish office.
