Our Response to the Review of the Character Appraisal and Management Proposals

Chichester Conservation Area Character Appraisal, published in March 2005 has been reviewed and updated by the Council as part of a program to update all the districts conservation area appraisals. The review (available here) of the conservation area included an examination of the existing boundaries of the conservation area to consider the potential for other areas to be included and, if appropriate, where existing areas should be excluded.

A public consultation ended 3 June 2016 on the revised character appraisal document, proposed changes to the conservation area boundary, and  proposals for additional planning controls, through the use of Article 4 Direction, to protect the area’s character .

The Chichester Society submitted its response which can be viewed here.
