Below is the newly proposed Objective that will now cover Environment & Heritage and we would ask for your comments on this. We have included a feedback section to allow you to reply and update us on your thoughts:
To enhance and protect our AONB status, the conservation areas and the Jurassic Coast.
To maintain, protect and enhance the unique nature, heritage, important features, character and assets of the Neighbourhood Plan Area.
Review of published information (Conservation Area Appraisal, Historic Towns Survey, Land of Local Landscape Importance etc) to identify existing designations / character areas and features, and consider what may be missing from a more local level.
Plan a PlaceCheck style assessment involving a range of volunteers from the local community (groupings to cover the whole NP area) to focus on those area not covered by existing designations. Use findings to map key features and review findings to identify / confirm;
The criteria for making the above decisions can be used to provide the basis for future reviews or re-assessment and the findings provide the basis for possible site design policies / standard requirements. Detrimental features can be noted to establish possible enhancement projects.
We have formed a Working Group and the contact details of our members can be found below. We are very keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in taking part. We have some very large questions to tackle and would welcome enquires form people no matter your personal background or age.
