Consultation for the adoption of the Perry Vale and Christmas Estate Conservation Area and Article 4 Direction

Closed 23 Oct 2018

Opened 10 Sep 2018


 The Council is consulting local residents and groups for the adoption of a new conservation area, and Article 4 Direction in the Perry Vale ward. We have written an appraisal in support of the adoption of this proposed conservation area which explains the historic and architectural importance of this area to the borough of Lewisham.

The Council is seeking thoughts and opinions on the appraisal, the principle of the adoption of the area as a conservation area, and the proposed Article 4 direction.  

Why your views matter

After the consultation period, all representations received will be taken into consideration and a final SPD will be reported for adoption to Mayor and Cabinet.

A report detailing the outcome of the consultation, accompanied by the appraisal and draft Article 4 Direction (revised as necessary) will be brought to Mayor and Cabinet in Autumn 2018 for adoption.
