Conservation Area Appraisal Reviews
Grove Mill and The Square Conservation Areas:
The two areas include historic networks of streets, lanes and fine open spaces, with many architecturally attractive buildings, including the impressive Dower House and Grove Mill in Grove Mill Lane Conservation Area and the architecturally significant Chapel, Vicarage Road Cemetery and the prominent and significant Red Lion Public House in The Square Conservation Area.
The Conservation Area designations and Character Appraisals are tools which help the council to prevent development that would not be in keeping with the character of the area and carry out projects that would enhance it.
The draft versions of these documents were published for public consultation between 29th November 2016 - 5th January 2017.
The revised version of The Grove Mill Lane Conservation Area Character Appraisal was adopted at the end of January 2017.
The revised version of The Square Conservation Area Character Appraisal was also adopted at the end of January 2017.
