Review of the Great Coxwell Conservation Area

We are carrying out a review of the conservation area in Great Coxwell. 

The village’s conservation area is the designated area of special architectural or historic interest which exists to protect the features and characteristics that make Great Coxwell a historic, unique and distinctive place.

Property and land in the conservation area is covered by extra planning controls which help to protect the setting and provide a guard against inappropriate work. Most demolition works will require planning permission, there are restrictions on permitted development and advertising; and trees are also better protected.

Why are we reviewing the conservation area?

It is a requirement that all councils coordinate and publish appraisals for the preservation and enhancementofconservation areas and that these proposals are reviewed from time to time.

This is the first comprehensive conservation area appraisal document that has been produced for Great Coxwell. The document has been authored by the Great Coxwell Neighbourhood Plan. We have a statutory duty to consult the public on this new document before it is adopted.

Have your say as part of our review process

Consultation on the draft document and boundary revisions closed on Wednesday 1 June. You can still view the draft document here:

What happens next

After the consultation period ends, we will consider your comments and make appropriate changes to the draft document and boundary revision before we proceed to adopt it via the council’s cabinet process. Once adopted, we will publish the cabinet report, new conservation area appraisal document and adopted revised boundary on our website.
