Consultation on Appleby Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan

We are preparing a Character Area Appraisal and Management Plan (CAAMP) for Appleby Conservation Area as part of their statutory duty to preserve and enhance the heritage asset.

This new character appraisal and management plan includes a description and assessment of the historical, architectural and townscape qualities of Appleby conservation area. It aims to encourage the conservation, repair, reuse and management of the town’s historic environment.

Public consultation

Before the Character Appraisal and Management Plan is adopted as planning policy guidance we are undertaking a public consultation to seek your views. The public consultation will run from Monday 11 October to Sunday 28 November 2021 and we welcome your comments and feedback during this period.

We are particularly interested in understanding why you think the Appleby conservation area is of special interest and what opportunities you think there are for enhancing the conservation area. We are also interested in your opinion on the changes being considered to the boundary of the conservation area.

How to get involved in the consultation

  • Complete a short questionnaire on Citizen Space to provide your feedback.

  • Visit our public drop-in session on Monday 18 October 2021, between 3pm and 7pm at Appleby Public Hall, Boroughgate, Appleby-in-Westmorland CA16 6XB.
    Paper copies of the management plan and questionnaire are available at this event.

Following the public consultation period, we will consider feedback and where appropriate include it within the CAAMP. We will present the final document to our Executive Committee for formal adoption as planning guidance and published on this website.
