The Parish Council was invited to assist the District Council with the preparation of a Conservation Area Appraisal, something not done since the conservation area was established on 3 February 1971. Our Neighbourhood Planning team has been carrying out much of the preparation work as a Conservation Area Appraisal document will support and add weight to our neighbourhood plan policies. As the village has grown in size since 1971 we had to include consideration of the boundaries of the conservation area and whether they should be changed to include or exclude later buildings and to remove anomalies.
We are grateful to villagers who welcomed us into their gardens on our walkabout yesterday and pending formulation of detailed proposals for any changes to the boundary and a formal consultation for the whole document, we should appreciate your views on any aspect of this project. Architectural and historical details will add much to the Appraisal and we encourage you to get in touch with any information that you feel it would be helpful to include about your property.

To give you an idea of what the finished document should look like, we recommend glancing at East Hendred’s Conservation Area Appraisal, at:
Prior to the lockdown, reports have been submitted to Parish Meetings, giving details of progress with the Great Coxwell Neighbourhood Plan Update and progress with the Conservation Area Appraisal preparations. These will recommence as meetings are rescheduled.
