Fareham Borough Council is undertaking a review of two of its conservation area character appraisals in line with national guidance. Draft documents have been released for public consultation relating to the conservation areas at Hook & Warsash.
Starting on Monday 7 November the draft appraisal documents will be available on the council's website and also from a display at the Victory Hall, Warsash, enabling residents and others the chance to comment. The consultation will be running for 4 weeks.
Following public consultation and consideration of the responses the documents will be adopted by the council to be used as evidence to inform planning decisions. Each document includes a management strategy setting out how the council aims to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area. The issues considered include recommendations for future enhancement and the use of article 4 directions to control potentially harmful alterations to dwellings.
Executive Member for Strategic Planning and Environment, Councillor Keith Evans said: "The purpose of a Conservation Area Assessment is to identify the features of a conservation area that are important to its character such as; the age and historic significance of the buildings, architectural styles, historic street layouts, open spaces, landscaping, trees and important views. Anyone who has an interest is welcome to let us know what they think about draft appraisals."
