The Character Assessments are a means by which the Neighbourhood Plan can identify the qualities and needs of particular sub areas and describe them in a standard format. This will help make sure that any new development respects the essential characteristics of the area in which it is set. These were originally carried out by teams of volunteers. Both versions are available below.
The Character Assessment for the Conservation area in St Margaret’s has recently been completed and submitted; this has been consulted on widely and is referenced in the Plan.
To view the Character Assessment for your area, you can either click the area on the map or click on the list beneath the map. The character assessment will then appear in a new window.
