Old Marston Conservation Area Appraisal

CEB is being asked to endorse a conservation area appraisal for Old Marston Conservation Area appraisal. The appraisal will be used to inform development changes that may affect the special interest of the conservation area.

A draft conservation area appraisal for Old Marston that defines the special interest and character of the conservation area was drafted in 2012, following extensive participation with the local community and a formal consultation. It was, however, never amended to take on board the comments received, and was not taken to Members for endorsement.

The draft appraisal has been refreshed to take account of the comments received in 2012 as well as any changes which have taken place to the conservation area’s character from developments or other changes during the intervening three years. This was carried out in November-December 2015, with the informal engagement of key local stakeholders.

The refreshed draft appraisal is now ready for formal endorsement, prior to final publication.
