Canterbury Conservation Areas Under Scrutiny
18th March 2010
... Comments

You may or may not be aware, but Canterbury City Council have been reviewing 13 of the area's preservation regions. This has involved, amongst other things, issuing an overview of the development of the city and its outer-lying areas, historic points of interest, and what defines Canterbury as Canterbury.

The City Council websites defines the appraisals as:
Conservation areas are "areas of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance". A comprehensive appraisalof these areas describes what is special about them and provides a basis for making decisions about the future. The Appraisal sets out how the city has evolved, draws out the key elements of townscape quality and discusses what is positive and negative.

The appraisal is also available at the local library and council office. Your comments about what makes Canterbury special and what issues are facing the area would be welcomed. An article about the appraisal will appear in the spring edition of District life. The formal public consultation period runs from 1 March 2010 to 30 AprilĀ 2010.

They would like public input about what makes Canterbury special for its residents, and as such there is a public consultation period until 30th April 2010.

For full information about the appraisals and how you can register your opinion, check out the Canterbury Council website, or visit to the Canterbury library or the council offices on Military Road..
