Stoke-on-Trent City Council is inviting views on a review of its conservation areas. The consultation runs from 26 September to 7 November 2022.

The city presently has 23 conservation areas, each of which has been designated by the city council in recognition of its special interest and heritage ‘significance’. This protects and manages the essential elements of character and appearance that make such places distinctive.

The city council has a statutory duty to review its conservation areas from time to time.  As part of the local plan process, all conservation areas were re-surveyed with a view to bring forward proposals to amend boundaries in accordance with current advice from Historic England, the Government advisor on the historic environment.

The consultation mainly reflects recommendations around minor boundary changes and proposes that two of the Conservation Areas in Fenton be amalgamated into one.

The consultation will run from Monday 26 September to Monday 7 November 2022 and you can have your say through the online consultation portal.

Please visit www.stoke.gov.uk/conservationareas to find out more.

Those who do not have access to a computer can go to their local library, where a member of the team will be able to support them.

Staff will be on hand to direct you to one of our paper-based response forms or help direct you to the consultation portal on one of the public use computers.

For specific queries, please email [email protected] or telephone 01782 233841.
