Brighton & Hove City Council has produced a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to provide detailed planning policy guidance on the repair, restoration and enhancement of historic buildings with architectural features.
It applies to statutorily listed buildings, historic buildings within conservation areas and locally listed buildings.
The guidance focuses on those original external architectural features of buildings that give them their historic character and which cumulatively contribute to the attractiveness of the street scene. It particularly concentrates on the typical Regency, Victorian and Edwardian buildings that make up the majority of the city’s historic built environment and which are in residential or small-scale commercial use.
The draft SPD is available on the council’s website or can be requested from the Design and Conservation team by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning (01273) 293152.
Comments on the draft are welcomed and should be sent to the above e-mail address or by post to Design and Conservation team, City Planning, Room 414, Hove Town Hall, Norton Road, Hove, BN3 3BQ. The closing date for comments is 5.00pm on Thursday 19th March 2009.
