Public consultation on a new Character Appraisal and Management Plan document
We think of our listed buildings, conservation areas, scheduled monuments and historic parks as being the Borough’s “Crown Jewels”. They are important as individual entities but together they help to create our unique historic environment and add architectural, historic and archaeological value. The Heritage team has recently produced a Character Appraisal and Management Plan consultation document for Cobham Conservation Area and is keen to hear the views of local residents and organisations. Cobham Conservation Area includes Mill Road, River Hill and the south part of the High Street and contains a number of important listed buildings such as Pyports, St Andrews Church, The Bear PH, Cobham Mill, Ham Manor and Cedar House.
Community involvement is an essential part of any appraisal and the consultation document has been produced as part of a collaborative process involving local residents and organisations together with planning officers and was co-coordinated by heritage consultants.

A Conservation Area is defined as “An area of special interest the character and appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance” The character appraisal document provides written definition, analysis and appraisal of what makes an individual area special and identifies actions for protection and improvement. The final document will be used by planners and the local community as a basis for understanding the area, informing decision making, monitoring and management.
