Residents are invited to comment on a draft document which proposes additions and changes to the existing North Lowestoft Conservation Area.
As part of regular reviews of its conservation areas, East Suffolk Council has reappraised the North Lowestoft Conservation Area. A draft Appraisal Document has been produced, which includes some proposed changes to the boundary of the Conservation Area.
A six-week public consultation begins today, Monday 15 February, and people are invited to comment on this draft appraisal.
Cllr David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Planning and Coastal Management said: “We undertake regular appraisals of conservation areas and public consultation is key as it ensures the appraisals reflect the aspirations of the local community. Once adopted, these appraisals are a material consideration when determining planning applications and can assist in the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas.”
Comments can be submitted by emailing email@example.com, by calling 01394 444610 and leaving a message, or in writing to Elizabeth Martin, Design and Conservation Team, East Suffolk Council, Riverside, 4 Canning Road, Lowestoft, NR33 0EQ.
Residents living in the existing conservation area will receive a letter regarding the proposed additions and inviting them to have their say.
The consultation closes on 26 March 2021.
