CONSERVING Grantham group members are delighted that, after submitting an application for a new St Anne’s Conservation Area in January 2012, a public consultation has been started by South Kesteven District Council.
Conservation areas help provide statutory protection to buildings and trees from loss or unsympathetic development.
The proposed new St Anne’s conservation area captures Wyndham Park and the Victorian growth of the town after the arrival of some notable industrialists along Harrowby Road, St Catherine’s Road and the majority of Dudley Road.
We hope there will be lots of support for our proposal for a new conservation area, which can provide umbrella statutory protection for our lovely varied Victorian buildings, parks, street scenes and trees.
They give a character and richness to Grantham which can be enjoyed by everyone, residents and visitors alike.
Conserving Grantham members are holding a drop-in session at St Anne’s Church, in Harrowby Road, Grantham, from 2pm until 7.30pm on Thursday, July 19.
Anyone interested is welcome to come along and find out about future plans to identify more conservation areas and protect heritage sites and wildlife habitats.
For more information go to www.southkesteven.gov.uk or call conservation officer Ian Wright on 01476 406080 or me on 01476 574748. Deadline date for public feedback is July 27.
