Have your say on the updated Conservation Area Appraisals
20 June 2022
Residents are invited to have their say on the newly published Conservation Area Appraisals following the Council's borough-wide review of existing Conservation Area Appraisals to ensure they reflect the current character and appearance of local areas.
Conservation Areas are areas of special architectural and historic interest, the character and appearance of which is worthy of preserving or enhancing. This character is derived from the area as a whole rather than the quality of specific buildings or features.
The new appraisal and Management Plan, upon adoption, will provide guidance to planning applicants, developers and architects if building works are proposed that require planning permission and will provide a sound basis for decisions made by the Council on planning applications and other proposals.
The following conservation areas have been reviewed and updated draft Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans have been produced for:
For further information about conservation areas, please see our frequently asked questions on conservation areas.
In addition to the draft Appraisals, three new buildings and structures are proposed to be added to the local list of Buildings of Townscape Merit (BTM), all of which are in the High Street Hampton Hill Conservation Area.
A locally listed building (also known as a Building of Townscape Merit) is a building or structure which is not statutorily listed but is recognised for its significance to the history and character of the local environment.
Reference copies of the consultation documents available to view at the Civic Centre and in Hampton Hill and Teddington libraries.
The consultation will run from Monday 20 June to Friday 22 July 2022.
To provide residents with further information Richmond Council will be hosting an online session on Tuesday 5 July, open to all residents to learn more about the appraisal, ask questions and provide feedback. Find out more and register for the event.
