Public consultation on conservation area

Tue 19 January 2010, 9:48 am

Medway residents are being asked to contribute their opinions on proposed changes to Rochester’s conservation area.

The new draft review of the area seeks to develop ways to preserve and appreciate the town’s areas of historic interest.

A five-week public consultation, running from 18 January to 22 February, will allow members of the public the chance to give their views on proposed changes to the Rochester conservation area.

Among the proposed plans is the extension of the boundary of the conservation area to include the Esplanade and the waterfront.

An exhibition will be on show at 95 Rochester High Street throughout the consultation with questionnaires for members of the public to complete. 

Proposals will also look into improvements to shop front security, and provide guidance on adverts and signs on Rochester High Street.

Medway Council’s portfolio holder for Strategic Development and Economic Growth Cllr Jane Chitty said: “Rochester is an integral part to Medway’s heritage and has a rich and varied architectural history."
