Extension to the Burlington Road Conservation Area Designation

Under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 the Council has a duty to review its conservation areas from time to time. In early 2018, the conservation area review surveyed the whole borough to consider the designation of new conservation areas, as well as extend and revise boundaries to best reflect character and special interest of conservation areas to ensure that the importance of the borough’s heritage is appropriately recognised and protected.


Following initial assessment, it was determined by officers (with the support of the Portfolio Holder) that the Burlington Road Conservation Area should be extended to include properties numbered 3-23 and 4-36 Dalton Road; 1-21 and 30-64 London Road; 13-25 and 36-38 Clarkson Street; 42-50 Stevenson Road; 3 Benezet Street; 21 Benezet Street; 24 Granville Street; 1 Clarkson Street and 5-7 Clarkson Street.


Public consultation was carried out and the Conservation Area Appraisal for the revised boundary has been prepared.  Executive is asked to approve the extension of the Burlington Road Conservation Area to include properties listed above.

Public consultation was carried out between 19th February 2019 and 19th March 2019 on the proposed extension of the Burlington Road Conservation Area. This took the form of a display of a public notice in a local newspaper, writing to all registered owners, as well as owner/occupiers in the proposed extension areas, outlining the reasoning for the proposed extension, as well as implications for owners. A public consultation event was held on 14th March 2019 at Burlington Baptist Church, attended by Rebecca Styles (Conservation Officer) and Anita Kittle (Planning Officer).
