Queens Park Conservation Area - Article 4 Direction

Report of the Executive Director Economy, Environment, & Culture (Copy Attached).

 

Decision:

 

RESOLVED: That the committee;

 

(i) Noted the representations made during the statutory consultation period and the officer responses set out at Appendix 1.

 

(ii) Confirmed the Article 4 Direction for the Queen’s Park conservation area that was made on 26 May 2021.

 

Minutes:

30.1 The Chair invited the Planning Team Lead (Tim Jeffries) to introduce the report.

 

30.2 The Planning Team Lead introduced the report starting on page 253 of the agenda.

 

30.3 Councillor Childs was informed that the direction doesn’t apply retrospectively – meaning that it doesn’t restrict the varied colours of the current properties, especially on Park Street.

 

30.4 Councillor Simson was informed that most of Queen’s Park Road isn’t included in the conservation area, and that changing the colour of a house drastically would require planning permission.

 

30.5 Councillor Evans was informed that the amendment could not go ahead due to the legal nature of Article 4. Councillor Evans then added that the amendment was placed because residents in her ward are against the policing of paint colours in ordinary streets in purely residential areas of the city, and that brightly coloured houses contribute to the appeal of the area.

 

30.6 Councillor Rainey raised that during the informal consultation in 2020, 65% of the 75 respondents agreed with the direction which is a large percentage, and that the direction will retain the historical importance of the area.

 

30.7 Councillor Childs raised that there are a small number of streets not in line with the Conservation area style, and thus the boundaries are unfit.

 

30.8 Councillor Littman responded that the Article 4 direction was created to protect the whole area and individual streets shouldn’t be singled out.

 

30.9 Councillor Evans responded that Labour Group support the article 4 direction, but wanted to introduce the amendment against paint colours due to many streets being painted brightly.

 

30.10 The Committee voted on the recommendations and they were agreed, with Councillors Grimshaw, Evans, and Childs abstaining.

 

RESOLVED: That the Committee;

 

(i) Noted the representations made during the statutory consultation period and the officer responses set out at Appendix 1.

 

(ii) Confirmed the Article 4 Direction for the Queen’s Park conservation area that was made on 26 May 2021.
