NOTICE OF THE DESIGNATION OF A CONSERVATION AREA (REVISED BOUNDARY) IN CASTLETOP/LEA BRIDGE/HIGH PEAK JUNCTION, NEAR CROMFORD DERBYSHIRE

Notice is hereby given of a revised boundary for the Castletop/Lea Bridge/High Peak Junction Conservation Area near Cromford in Derbyshire. The revised boundary (to the original designation of 1990) comprises extensions to the north, south and west of the existing Conservation Area boundary. These include: To the north - land forming a backdrop to Castle Top Farm, part of the Alison Uttley family farm. To the west and south - a section of track-bed of 1853, forming a link from the Cromford and High Peak Railway to the mainline along with wooded section of the valley. To the west and south - the contiguous linear corridors, - water meadows, River Derwent and 1849 railway line between Lea Road and the Cromford Canal. The effect of the designation broadly comprises: Any new development should preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area, or at least not detract from it. Planning permission is required for: most extensions, as there is a reduced maximum size of extension that can be built on a dwelling house; for a satellite dish on a building elevation or roof slope which is facing onto, or is visible from a highway; on a chimney; or on a building higher than 15metres; for an addition or alteration to the roof which increases the overall size of the house and to clad any part of a building. for erecting or altering a separate building or structure in the curtilage of a house where that building is greater than 10cubic metres. Six weeks written notice of proposed works to fell, lop or top a tree, needs to be made to the Local Planning Authority. The Local Planning Authority can consider enhancement schemes for the area and grant aid the same. Conservation Area Consent is required to demolish any building greater than 115cubic metres and may be required for the demolition of walls, gates or fences (dependent on their height). A copy of the plan showing the boundary of the area, (as revised) may be viewed at the Town Hall, Bank Road, Matlock between 9am and 5pm, Mondays to Fridays. P.L. Wilson Planning Services Manager.
