Review of the Great Coxwell Conservation Area
This review has now concluded and the conservation area appraisal document and revised boundary has been adopted. You can find the cabinet report which summarises the consultation responses and the resulting changes to the draft appraisal here. We are now in the process of preparing the final document with amendments which, when finalised, will be available on our conservation areas page.
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 have we reviewed the conservation area?
It is a requirement that all councils coordinate and publish appraisals for the preservation and enhancement of conservation 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 team. We have a statutory duty to consult the public on this new document before it is adopted.
