Conservation areas consultation to start on Monday 26 September

Stoke-on-Trent City Council is set to launch the conservation area review consultation on Monday 26 September, which will run until Monday 7 November, at midnight.

The city presently has 23 conservation areas, each of which has been designated by the local planning authority in recognition of its special interest and heritage ‘significance’. This protects and manages the essential elements of character and appearance that make such places distinctive.

The local planning authority has a statutory duty to review its conservation areas from time to time. As part of the local plan process, all 23 areas were re-surveyed with a view to bringing forward proposals to amend boundaries (as appropriate) in accordance with current advice from Historic England, the Government advisor on the historic environment.

Residents are now invited to take part in the consultation.

Councillor Daniel Jellyman, the cabinet member for regeneration, infrastructure, and heritage, said: “We are encouraging all residents to have their say in the consultation. We want to hear what these significant historical features in our city, mean to you.”

The consultation will be available to complete at https://secureapps.stoke.gov.uk/ConsultationPortal/ConsultationPortal/Home.aspx and supporting information can be found here www.stoke.gov.uk/conservationareas. The consultation is open until Monday 7 November at midnight.

Residents wishing to have their say can do so through the online consultation portal. For those who do not have access to a computer they can go to their local library, where a member of the team will be able to support them.

Copies of the consultation document can also be viewed at local centres and local libraries during opening hours. Local centres and libraries can be found here:

  • Local Centres – Longton and Tunstall
  • Libraries – Bentilee, Stoke, Tunstall, Hanley, Meir and Longton.
