Consultation on Petts Wood conservation areas

Published Wednesday, 11 November 2020

Petts Wood residents and interested parties have until Monday 14 December to comment on two new proposed conservation areas and an extension to an existing conservation area in Petts Wood.

The proposed new conservation areas warrant designation due to their special historic and architectural interest. In addition, conservation area protection would ensure that the locality’s distinctive character will be preserved and enhanced. 

Councillor Alexa Michael, Chairman of Development Control Committee said: “We want to hear as many views as possible before the consultation ends on 14 December. The proposed conservation areas are of special interest which need to be preserved for future generations. Anyone interested can find out more and comment by visiting our web site at

Conservation areas are locations with a special character, often due to the quality of their buildings and other elements. These can include the historic layout of roads, paths and boundaries and characteristic building and paving materials which all contribute to a familiar and cherished local scene. The proposed conservation areas have been informed by an independent report produced by the Built Environment Advisory and Management Service (BEAMS).

The BEAMS report and details of how to respond are available at with the consultation ending on 14 December 2020.


Notes to editors:

  • Following the consultation exercise, comments will be considered and reported back to a future meeting of the Development Control Committee. The members will then determine whether or not to formally recommend designation and extension of the proposed conservation areas to the council’s Executive.
