A Carshalton Conservation Area Character Appraisal was first adopted by the council in 2007. It identified the character and appearance of the conservation area, as well as the buildings and key elements that make important contributions to the historical quality of the area. Following requests from residents, the council has updated the Character Appraisal to include recent changes and other developments within the Conservation Area.

This new draft document also includes a management plan to highlight where improvements can be made, where retaining heritage assets intact is a priority, or where change may be permissible if heritage assets can be incorporated within new development. The management plan also deals with such issues as how new development should complement existing heritage assets and protect open spaces, biodiversity, trees and hedges, and supports specific social aspects of Carshalton Village, such as its sustainability heritage and its flourishing artistic scene.

The guidelines and references in the new document will be a key consideration for all future planning applications within the Conservation Area and so we want to know what you think.
