Harvington Conservation Area Review

Wychavon District Council is reviewing the Harvington conservation area; designated in the 1969  this is the first review in over 40 years.

As part of the review, the Council will be seeking public comment on the draft Character Appraisal and Management Plan for the Harvington conservation area.

Conservation area designation remains an important planning tool, helping to control new developments and influence their design in areas where they might affect historic places.

A new boundary is proposed.  This will extend the conservation area to cover additional land considered to contribute to the historic character of the village, as well as rationalising some areas which have changed over the years.

The consultation will run from 1st June until 13th July 2015.  Residents are invited to attend a public meeting on 1st June 2015 at 6.30pm  at  Harvington village hall, where the Council's Heritage Manager and Conservation Officer will present the review and answer questions.

Alternatively, hand written comments can be sent to Jim  Burgin, Planning Services, Wychavon District Council, Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Pershore, Worcs, WR10 1PT.
