We asked

Between November 2022 and January 2023 we consulted upon the draft Brockhall Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan and a proposed conservation area boundary.

The appraisal set out the character of the conservation area and identified important features in order to provide advice to those making proposals which might affect the designation’s special interest.

The appraisal also proposed candidates for the Local List, and formulated proposals for an Article 4(1) Direction.
