Proposed designation of Cumberland Park Factory Conservation Area

Start date: 04 February 2016
End date: 31 March 2016

A Conservation Area is an area which has special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. A Conservation Area designation introduces controls over the way the area/buildings are developed, this means:

  • Conservation Area Consent will be required for the demolition of most buildings and structures (including walls);
  • Works to trees above a certain size will require planning permission;
  • New development will be required to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the Conservation Area; and
  • Restrictions on the type of development which can be carried out with the need for planning permission (permitted development rights/deemed consent)

Thank you to all those who have responded to the consultation.

All of the feedback received from the consultation will now be carefully analysed and considered to inform the designation process.

Further details about the proposed Cumberland Park Factory Conservation Area, including its boundary, are available in the Draft Conservation Area Appraisal which is available to view below:
