Residents and businesses in Woodhall Spa are being invited to have their say on proposals that aim to preserve the village’s unique heritage.
East Lindsey District Council, with the support of the Woodhall Spa Parish Council and the local Heritage Committee, is proposing two planning measures that would help retain and enhance Woodhall Spa’s special character and its unique ‘arts and crafts’ architectural style.
The consultation, which is taking place from now until December 7, allows participants to consider the District Council’s proposal that the conservation area of the village should be covered by an “Article 4” direction.
The aim is to preserve original features of buildings and ensure that any changes are in keeping with the style of the premises and character of the conservation area.
Changes that might be covered include the replacements of natural slates or plain red clay tiles on a roof with other materials, the removal of chimneys and other external features, and changes to windows or doors.
ELDC believes that these controls would help keep Woodhall Spa special, and boost investment in homes and commercial projects.
The consultation ‘drop-in’ sessions will take place at St Peter’s Church Hall in Broadway, Woodhall Spa, on Saturday, October 31 from (11am-1pm), and Wednesday, November 18 and Saturday, December 5 (2pm-4pm).
