To consider the outcomes of consultation and decide whether to designate the area as a conservation area or not.
(1) 1-41 (consecutive) West Drive, 1-29, 31, and 33-47 (consecutive) Bellfield Avenue, all of West Drive Gardens and 128, 130 and 132 Uxbridge Road be designated as a conservation area (named the West Drive and Bellfield Avenue Conservation Area), as shown in Appendix 3 to the officer report; ;
(2) authority be delegated to the Chief Planning Officer, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Planning and Regeneration to undertake the necessary statutory processes to formally designate the conservation area.
Reason for Decision: Consideration of the proposed area as a possible conservation area fulfils the Council’s obligations under section 69 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 (‘the Act’) to determine whether any parts of their area should be designated as conservation areas and if so, designate these as conservation areas. Whilst not a statutory requirement, the consultation undertaken represents best practice.
The Planning Policy Advisory Panel is an Advisory Panel to the Cabinet and this report / recommendation responds to the Panel’s conclusion and recommendation that the West Drive and Bellfield Avenue area should be designated as a new Conservation Area.
