Welcome to North East Lincolnshire Council’s web page introducing the Central Sea Front Conservation Area Cleethorpes Conservation Area Appraisal.
It is a duty of the council to review its conservation areas periodically and also to publish plans for their preservation and enhancement. North East Lincolnshire Council is now reviewing the Central Sea Front Conservation Area. A conservation area appraisal is intended to:
- Be a benchmark, providing a snapshot of the conservation area at that time and assist the council in making plans for its continued preservation and enhancement;
- Be a planning tool to ensure the conservation area is properly considered when planning decisions are made that affect the area by:
a. Recognising the importance of historic buildings, individually and in groups, and the contribution they make to the quality of the conservation area;
b. Identifying opportunities for new high quality development in gap sites and other potential sites;
c. Ensuring that locally distinctive character is recognised and protected;
- Provide a baseline for assessing the condition of the conservation area which in turn, can demonstrate the need for heritage-led regeneration funding.
It is a requirement of legislation that public consultation is undertaken for a conservation area appraisal. To ensure this covers the widest possible audience, North East Lincolnshire Council has:
• Written to all owners and occupiers of property in the existing and proposed Central Seafront Conservation Area;
• Provided a small exhibition about the Central Seafront Cleethorpes Conservation Area Appraisal in the foyer of Cleethorpes Library that can be viewed from Tuesday 4th February 2013 until Monday 24th February (inclusive). Library opening hours can be found at the following link: http://www.nelincs.gov.uk/resident/libraries-and-archives/find-a-library-and-opening-hours/cleethorpes-library/. Copies of the document are available for viewing and comments can be left in a box at the library;
