Consultations: Conservation and urban design
The council is currently consulting residents and stakeholders with regard to a Tree Preservation Order protecting a Eucalyptus Gunni Tree at 29 James Brine House, Ravenscroft Street, London E2 7QQ.
More details about the consultation are on the Tree Management and Preservation Order page.
This consultation will close on the 26 October 2020.
Conservation areas in and around Whitechapel
The council consulted on revised character appraisals and management guidelines for five consultation areas in and around Whitechapel. The consultation took place between Monday 11 February and Sunday 24 March 2019.
The revised documents are intended to replace previous character appraisals and management guidelines that were drawn up over ten years ago. The new documents respond to the physical changes that have taken place in the conservation areas over this period, and to changes in national and local planning policy and guidance. In response to these changes, the council is proposing to amend the boundaries of each of the conservation areas; removing some areas and adding others.
The council is carefully considering all of the comments that were received in response to this consultation, and a timetable for the adoption of these documents will be published in due course
Proposed additions to the local list
The council consulted on a proposal to add forty one buildings to the local list. The consultation took place between Monday 11 February and Sunday 24 March 2019.
Buildings are added to the local list in recognition of their value as irreplaceable historic assets, which contribute to the quality of the local environment by enhancing the street scene and sustaining a sense of distinctiveness.
After giving careful consideration to all of the comments that were received in response to the consultation, the council decided, at a meeting of Cabinet on 31 July 2019, to add all forty one buildings to the local list.
