Decision details

Designation of a new Conservation Area at Wick's Green, Binfield.

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Planning & Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

This report is to enable the Executive Member for Planning and Transport to consider the designation of a new Conservation Area at Wick's Green, Binfield under section 69(1) of Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

Decision:

That a new conservation area be designated at Wick's Green, Binfield, under Section 69(1) of Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, as detailed on the map in Appendix 1 of the Director: Place, Planning and Regeneration report.

Reasons for the decision:

      i.        It is a statutory requirement that every local planning authority:

(a)   shall from time to time determine which parts of their area are areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance, and

(b)   shall designate those areas as conservation areas.

     ii.        An appraisal of this area was carried out in 2010 by specialist consultancy The Conservation Studio, on behalf of the Council.  The appraisal report and the area have been revisited and reassessed and the area originally identified as being worthy of designation as a conservation area remains an area of ‘special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance ’.

 

 Therefore, the Council should now designate as a new conservation area in the Borough.

Alternative options considered:

An alternative option is to dismiss the proposal.  However, the planning authority does have a duty to review and to determine whether any parts or any further parts of their area should be designated as conservation areas; and, if they so determine, to designate those parts accordingly.
