Conservation Area - Consultation
The three Conservation Areas in Boughton Parish were designated between 1970 and 1976 and have not been formally reviewed since designation. Coinciding with the development of a neighbourhood plan for Boughton and Dunkirk parishes and the need to ensure that the three Conservation Areas justify their ongoing designation status, the Borough Council (in liaison with the Neighbourhood Plan Committee) has prepared a character appraisal and management strategy for each Conservation Area which it is now inviting comments on from interested parties, particularly from residents and businesses located within one of the three areas. As a result of the detailed survey and review work carried out in order to produce the documents, the Borough Council is proposing some changes to the boundaries of each Conservation Area which if agreed following public consultation, would result in each of the areas being slightly enlarged.
Public consultation on the three Boughton Parish Conservation Areas runs from Monday 27 February for a six week period until Sunday 9 April 2017. You can view the appraisal and management strategy documents online at http://www.swale.gov.uk/conservation-areas/ or if you would prefer to view a paper version, hard copies of each document are available to view at the Borough Council’s office in Sittingbourne (Swale House, East Street, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 3HT) and at the Boughton under Blean Library which forms part of the village hall (Bull Lane, Boughton under Blean, Kent, ME13 9JF).
