Driffield Road and Medway conservation areas

The council consulted on revised character appraisals and management guidelines for the Driffield Road and Medway conservation areas. These documents contained details of how a mansard roof can be sympathetically designed to ensure that harm to the special character and appearance of the conservation areas is minimised. The council also consulted on façade and streetscape enhancement guidance for these two conservation areas. These documents contained details of measures that could accompany planning applications for mansard roof extensions, to help mitigate harm to the historic environment.  These documents were formally adopted by the council at a meeting of Cabinet on 27 June 2017.

Conservation strategy

We consulted on an updated conservation strategy between 11 November 2016 and 2 January 2017. The document sets out a vision for the boroughs heritage and provides a framework to help ensure that plays an influential role in the well-being of Tower Hamlets’ communities and businesses.  The strategy was formally adopted by the council at a meeting of Cabinet on 19 September 2017.

Local list nomination and selection process

We consulted on a local list nomination and selection process between 11 November 2016 and 30 January 2017.

The process was formally adopted by the council at a meeting of Cabinet on 19 September 2017.
