Draft Uttlesford Local Heritage List – Public Consultation

The draft Uttlesford Local Heritage List document is now available to view, and open for public comment, until 4th July 2018 at 3.30pm.

Members of the public and consultees now have the opportunity to tell the District Council what they think about the draft Uttlesford Local Heritage List.

The first edition draft Local Heritage List contains a list of structures and other assets which are considered to be locally significant and worthy of consideration as part of the planning process to preserve their special character. It includes residential properties, historic signposts, telephone boxes and even village water pumps. Each had to meet a number of criteria to make the list.

The assets are different to those identified by Historic England and will not be subject to listed building legislation; however, their inclusion on the Local Heritage List will ensure their historic and architectural importance is given due consideration when determining related planning applications.

The public is invited to tell the council what they think about the draft Local Heritage List. Further details can be viewed at www.uttlesford.gov.uk/heritagelist.

There will be a chance to see details of all the proposals and to discuss them with council officers at two public meetings, on:

  • 30 May, 5-8pm – Foakes Hall, Stortford Road, Great Dunmow
  • 6 June, 5-8pm – Uttlesford District Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden

From 23 May paper copies of the document can also be inspected at the following locations:

  • Saffron Walden – UDC Council Offices, Library and Tourist Information Centre
  • Dunmow – Library
  • Thaxted – Community Information Centre
  • Stansted – Library

Anyone can respond to the consultation by using a feedback form which can be downloaded from the council’s website and e-mailed to conservation@uttlesford.gov.uk. Alternatively, you can write to: Conservation Officer – Local Heritage List, Uttlesford District Council, Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden CB11 4ER.
