Review of Southgate Street conservation area
A review of the documentation covering the need and reasons for declaring the Southgate Street area of Gloucester as a conservation area is being carried out by the City Council.
Conservation areas are an important element in helping to protect and preserve the 'essential character' of a local district. This can include historic elements, important architecture or event the amount and type of open space.

They were first established nationally in 1967 and there are now more than 8,000 across England. National research has shown them to be valued by residents as properties can have higher valuations.
Southgate Street was designated six years ago and the City Council needs to make sure that its approach is still relevant.
This work complements an application by the City Council for lottery funding of £1.2 million for a Townscape Heritage Initiative that would provide cash to help improve homes and businesses in the area. A decision on whether the application has been successful is expected shortly.
Now residents in the area are being asked to take part in a consultation exercise and comments on the review of the conservation area that has been published.
The document can be seen at the Council's offices at The Docks, in the Brunswick Road library or online at www.gloucester.gov.uk/cityplan
There will also be a consultation event between 5.00 – 7.00 on October 2nd at Blackfriars Priory.
Comments need to be returned to the City Council by October 28th.
