Notice is hereby given under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 section 69 that Westminster City Council has determined that the Grosvenor Hotel, 101 Buckingham Palace Road is of special architectural and historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance, and has therefore designated this as an extension to the Grosvenor Gardens Conservation Area. The effect of the designation of the Conservation Area is as follows: 1. Conservation Area Consent will now be required for the demolition of any unlisted buildings (other than excepted buildings) in the area. 2. Planning applications for development which would, in the opinion of the local planning authority, affect the character or appearance of the Conservation Area must be given publicity and representations received as a result of the publicity must be taken into account in determining the application. 3. It becomes an offence, subject to certain exceptions, to cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage or wilfully destroy any tree in the area, except with the consent of the local planning authority. 4. The local planning authority now have a duty to formulate and publish proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the area.
