We have prepared a draft character appraisal and boundary review of the Hemington conservation area, for the purposes of public consultation.

A conservation area is an area of "special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance". The Hemington conservation area was designated in 1974; we adopted a character appraisal and boundary review in 2001.

The draft character appraisal describes changes to the conservation area and it setting since 2001. It identifies those elements that contribute positively to the conservation area and its setting, as well as those elements that contribute negatively. It may inform decisions on applications for development that would affect the conservation area. It may inform a management plan.

As part of the draft boundary review, it is proposed to add Chapel Close ('Hemington Park') to the conservation area. It is proposed to remove 17 properties on and around Grange Farm Close from the conservation area.

At the bottom of this page you will find the draft character appraisal and boundary review. You will also find a link to our webpage, 'Living in a conservation area', which explains the implications of conservation area designation. Please send us your comments no later than Wednesday 20 March. You may send your comments to the conservation officer by post or email james.white[at]nwleicestershire.gov.uk

Meet the conservation officer: If you would like to discuss the draft documents face-to-face, then please visit the Jolly Sailor PH on Wednesday 28 February at any time between noon and 3pm.
