Conservation area appraisals and management plans

Draft conservation area appraisals

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is undertaking a programme of work to re-appraise its conservation areas. It is important that those who have an interest in these areas are given the opportunity to comment on the appraisal documents before they are ratified by the council. As far as possible, affected residents and occupiers of commercial properties within the conservation areas are notified of the draft appraisals as soon as the documents are available for consultation.

Although the council is happy to send out a paper copy of an appraisal on request, appraisal documents that are at the consultation stage will be  presented below. The closing dates for consultation and details for contacting the conservation team by email are shown on the final text page of the individual appraisal. 

Please note: these documents will not come into force until the consultation stage is completed and they have been adopted by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

There are currently no conservation areas under review by the council.  Details of the 2018 schedule of conservation area reviews will be updated throughout the year.

Recently Adopted Conservation Area Appraisals

Following a successful review, the Walkington Conservation Area Appraisal document and boundary changes were adopted in January and February 2018.   

Once a conservation area appraisal is adopted by the council then it will be included with the other adopted conservation area appraisals.

Adopted conservation area appraisals

The government has recommended that local authorities should ensure that all their conservation areas are appraised on a regular basis so that the areas would always have relatively up-to-date appraisals of what made them 'areas of special architectural or historic interest'.

Significant work has been undertaken towards achieving this goal and more than 96 percent of conservation areas have relatively up-to-date appraisals which have been adopted by the council.

All adopted appraisals are available for inspection on this page and will be used as background documents in support of the development plan and as a material consideration in the determination of relevant planning applications.

You can view all appraisals below:

Conservation area management plans

 

What is a conservation area management plan?

Conservation areas are intended to preserve or enhance the special interest of a place. A conservation area is designated because of its special architectural or historic characteristics (which is set out in a document called a character appraisal). A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance the conservation area and how it will monitor this.

A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance a conservation area and how it will monitor this.

Not all conservation areas have a management plan.  In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country don’t have one.  In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

Does every conservation area have a management plan?

No. In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country do not have a management plan. In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

How will you review the success of the management plan?

The council will collect information about the conservation area (such as the number of planning applications) through an annual survey. This will allow us to measure the condition of the conservation area at that time. Over time, this will allow us to tell whether the condition is improving.

Where can I view the conservation area management plans?

Currently, there are two conservation area management plans, which are available to download below:

Bridlington Quay CA Management and Maintenance Plan (1.8mb)

Draft Conservation Area Management Plan and Maintenance Plan (MMP) for Goole Town conservation area (9.3mb)

Can I find more about the Draft Goole Conservation Area Management Plan and Maintenance Plan (MMP) 2019-2029?

Yes. This section explains what the new plan is, why it’s needed and how to send us your comments and feedback.  

What is the Draft Conservation Area Management Plan and Maintenance Plan (MMP) for Goole Town conservation area?

The (MMP) for Goole town conservation area outlines the ways in which the council will seek to manage and improve the conservation area.

It sets out:

  • The approach the council will take in improving the conservation area
  • How the council will work with others to secure improvements
  • The measures the council will use to maintain and monitor the quality of the conservation area.

Draft Goole Conservation Area Management Plan and Maintenance Plan (MMP) 2019-2029 (9.3mb)

Why does the conservation area need an MMP?

Conservation areas are intended to preserve and enhance the special interest of a place. East Riding of Yorkshire Council aims to provide positive management for these unique areas. Goole town conservation area is currently categorised as ‘at risk’ by Historic England. 

Our key objective is to improve the area so it is not in the risk register.

We are redefining and reinforcing the role and function of the town centre, in response to economic and social shifts, such as the increase in online trading.

As part of the council’s commitment to improving the Goole Conservation Area we have drafted this management plan and maintenance plan (MMP).

Why are we consulting on the MMP?

Local communities, business owners and other agencies have a role to play in the development of the area. These could be:

  • property owners and tenants who want to make changes to their building
  • members of the public interested in the character of the area or statutory undertakers working in the area.

Therefore, we are looking for your comments and feedback.

What happens after the consultation?

We will collect all the feedback and comments made about the draft MMP and take them into consideration when finalising the document.

The comments and the MMP will then be considered by the Council’s Cabinet in September 2019 and adopted.

How does the council monitor the success of the MMP?

The council intends to review the MMP on an annual basis initially, reducing to every three years as the area improves.

Are we seeking feedback on anything specific?

The council would like to know your views generally, but also on some specific aspects of the document. There are 7 questions which you can use to give feedback:

  1. What is your overall opinion of the draft Goole Town Conservation Area MMP?
  2. Do you think it will help the council to manage the conservation area better in future?
  3. Do you think there is anything that has been omitted?
  4. Do you think it would be appropriate to restrict some currently permitted development rights in future by the introduction of an Article 4 Direction?
  5. If yes, what do you think should be covered (for example, building colour, removal of railings, removal of small walls, removal of original windows)?
  6. Should there be any other indicators for the council to monitor? If so, what?
  7. Do you have any other comments?
