Residents and business-owners are invited to have their say on the proposed extension of the Church Green Conservation Area as a public consultation is launched.

From today, for six weeks, there is the opportunity to fill in and return a comments form on the draft Conservation Area Appraisal and the Conservation Management Plan

The character appraisal identifies the factors and features which make the area special, based on an in-depth assessment of the area’s buildings, spaces, evolution and sense of place.

The Conservation Management Plan provides a strategy for the management of the conservation area in a way that will protect and enhance its character and appearance and support the wider regeneration of the town centre.

Proposals to extend the Conservation Area include bringing 5-11 Alcester Street into the area as they are in-keeping with other historic buildings there not least a Grade ll Church and 19th Century public buildings.

Redditch Borough Councillor Mike Rouse, whose Portfolio covers Heritage, said: “We want to hear from our residents and business owners so we can work together to create a Redditch of which everyone can be proud and Church Green is a vital part of our regeneration plans, and an area which is important to us to preserve.”

Council Leader Matt Dormer, whose Portfolio-holder covers Regeneration, said: “While this Council is committed to regenerating Redditch and unlocking its full potential, we want to protect its history too.”

The draft appraisal will be found at  together with a comments form, which needs to be returned to
