Ewell Village Conservation Area
An appraisal of the Ewell Village Conservation Area was carried out by heritage consultants in 2008. It suggested that certain roads or properties should be added to the Conservation Area, due to the positive contribution made by their architectural or historic character. It also suggested some roads or properties should be deleted due to their negative contribution.
A public consultation was held in 2007/8. Very few objections were raised opposing this addition. On 27 January 2009 the Council’s Planning Strategy & Resources Committee agreed the amendments. The amendments can be viewed on a map on this website.
The properties that have been added to the Ewell Village Conservation Area can be found via the link.
The existing Ewell Village Conservation Area is subject to an Article 4 Direction. This Direction means that Planning Permission is required for various changes such as replacement windows, the construction of hard standing in your front garden, changing your roof, removal of chimneys, and the erection of new front boundary fencing. Any properties within the Conservation Area are now subject to these constraints. Please find more information via the link.
More information on the properties that have been removed from the Ewell Village Conservation Area can be found via the link.
The removal of these properties means that they will no longer be so restricted as to what minor development can be carried out without needing to ask for Planning Permission. More information on these permitted development rights can be found via the link.
Letters have been sent to all properties concerned in the changes, copies of which can be found below. They contain contact details for the Council, should you have any queries.
