North Oxford Victorian Suburb Conservation Area Appraisal- Final
The Head of Planning and Regulatory submitted a report which presented the North Oxford Victorian Suburb Conservation Area Appraisal and sought approval to go out to consultation.
Cllr Hollingsworth, Board Member for Planning and Regulatory Services presented the report. He explained that the appraisal would go out for consultation.
The Apprentice Planner said the appraisal lists the heritage of the area. Adopting a character appraisal will inform future decisions in the North Oxford Area. There is potential to expand the current conservation area boundary and merge several conservation areas into one. This will be considered during the consultation process.
Cllr Price asked how Council was going to engage with conservation groups. The Team Leader for Design, Heritage & Trees said that several public meetings for conservation groups and residents have been arranged. The consultant of the report will also be attending.
The earliest the report will come back to CEB will be June 2017, however if the boundary of the conservation area changes this will delay the final report.
The City Executive Board resolves to:
1. Endorse the draft conservation area appraisal as the basis for public consultation (attached to this report);
2. Approve the carrying out of consultation upon the draft appraisal; and
3. Approve the seeking of views on additions and deletions to the conservation area.
