The Southorpe Conservation Area was designated in 1990 to protect its special character and appearance. The current conservation area boundary covers the majority of the village.
The City Council has a duty to review the Conservation Area and 'draw up and publish proposals for its preservation and enhancement'.
It is important that all those who have an interest in the conservation area are aware of those elements that should be preserved or enhanced. We have completed a review, or appraisal, of the Southorpe Conservation Area following Historic England guidance.
The appraisal assesses the historic, architectural and spatial qualities of the conservation area and makes proposals for the future management of the area to ensure that its character and appearance are not harmed.
The purpose of the draft appraisal is to:
- identify the special character of the area;
- review the conservation area boundary;
- provide a basis for considering planning proposals that affect the area; and
- make recommendations to ensure its special qualities are retained and enhanced.
The draft Southorpe Appraisal and Management Plan is subject to public consultation until Friday 30th June 2017 after which it will be reviewed with Southorpe Parish Council, Ward and City Council members. A summary of the public consultation will be published on this web site and will be available on request.
The Southorpe Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan will be adopted as City Council approved planning guidance in support of policy PP17 of the Peterborough Planning Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) and will be material consideration when making planning decisions and considering other changes affecting the area to ensure that its special character and appearance is not harmed.
