Newton Abbot looks to massive extension of conservation area
Plans are afoot to extend the boundaries of the conservation areas in the market town of Newton Abbot, and residents have until Tuesday, January 19 to get their views known.
The plans are to extend the boundaries to encompass the medieval core of Newton Abbot and some of its 19th century expansion, and would affect much of the town centre, Forde Park, Wolborough Hill, Devon Square and Courtenay Park, all of which have proposed Conservation Area Boundary Revisions.
If adopted, the extended Conservation Area will help promote the regeneration of the area, through conservation of its built heritage, and being considered as part of the formal planning process for new developments.
Residents have until Tuesday, January 19 to make their views know, with the plans available at Teignbridge Council offices, local libraries, and online.
The proposals are then scheduled to go to Teignbridge’s Executive meeting on Monday, March 8 where a decision should be made.
