The Draft Register of Buildings and Parks of Local Architectural and Historic Interest Supplementary Planning Document (“the Draft Local Register SPD”) updates the existing Register which was adopted in 2008 (see below). The Draft Register (see below) continues to celebrate our rich historic environment and is designed to identify the buildings, parks and gardens of local architectural and historic interest and enable their notable features to be identified and considered during the course of the design process when development is proposed.
The Main Modifications were prepared in response to the issues raised through representations to the Local Plan and during the examination hearing sessions that commenced in November and December 2016. Consultation was then invited on these modifications. All those who had responded to the Local Plan previously were notified directly either by email or letter.
The Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) requires that before a decision is made on a planning application, statutory consultees and the local community should have the opportunity to comment on any aspect of the proposal. All planning applications are publicised by site or press notice and / or by notifying adjoining neighbours directly by letter and by publication on the Council’s web site. Representations to planning applications are accepted in writing either by letter, email or through the Council’s planning portal (see below).
The Council invited landowners and stakeholders, and any interested party to submit land for inclusion on the Council’s Brownfield Land Register. The Register will provide details of previously developed sites that are available and potentially suitable for residential development. Part One of the Brownfield Land Register has now been published on the Council’s website (see below). Whilst no new sites were added to the register following consultation, useful information was recorded outlining the intentions of some land owners.
Our consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who gave their views on the North of Tyne devolution proposals. The views gathered in the consultation have been analysed and submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The report of the consultation, together with additional detail, is now available at the website below.
