One of the key features of the responses to the publication of the content of the Neighborhood Plan (NP) has been the protection of the features of the village, especially the conservation area. The NP is in the final stages of its compilation ready for your review early in the New Year 2015. In the meantime the DMBC ( now City of Doncaster Council )have published a draft of the Burghwallis Conservation Area Appraisal which details key elements that have been included in the NP.
Burghwallis was designated a conservation area on 15 June 1978. Over the last year, council officers have been carrying out a review of the features that make this area special and have compiled a detailed appraisal of the conservation area. Officers have also set out proposals on how to protect the area and its character in the future.
From 10 November to 15 December 2014, local residents, businesses and anyone who has an interest in conservation areas are being urged to come forward and have their say on the appraisal and how to protect this conservation area. You can find the details here
If you would like to have your say on how you think this area should be protected, you can view the draft appraisal in the Documents Section to the right. Hard copies of the document have been left with Bughwallis Parish Councillors; Gill Laming, Brenda Grimes and Kath Walters; these can be borrowed by contacting them via the Burghwallis Parish Council. A copy is also available at the Design and Conservation team , Civic Office, Waterdale, Doncaster, DN1 3BU. Officers are also available to discuss the conservation area appraisal by appointment. It is also intended for officers to attend the next Burghwallis neighbourhood Plan meeting on Monday 24 November 2014 at Burghwallis Pub at 7pm.
If you wish to make an appointment or have any queries please contact the Design and Conservation team using the contact details at the top of this page.
Comments to the appraisal are welcome and should be sent in writing by 15 December 2014 to the contacts at the top of this page.
