We have prepared a draft character appraisal and boundary review of the Castle Donington conservation area, for public consultation. The draft character appraisal describes the conservation area's character and identifies opportunities to enhance that character. The draft boundary review identifies land that may be added to or removed from the conservation area.
Please use the links below to download the draft character appraisal and boundary review and to find out about the implications of living in a conservation area.
We would welcome your comments on the draft character appraisal and boundary review; please send them to us no later than 18 March 2020. Please submit a comment using the link below or write to:
The Senior Conservation Officer
NW Leicestershire District Council
Apiary Gate and Clapgun Street Article 4(1) Direction
The draft character appraisal describes the conservation area as nineteen character zones. It says that "timber windows dominate the Barroon and Clapgun Street character zones, where about 80% of buildings have timber windows". To maintain the contribution that timber windows make to character, the District Council has made a provisional direction withdrawing relevant permitted development rights from householders in the Barroon and Clapgun Street character zones.
Please use the link below to find out more about the provisional direction.
