Conservation Area Advisory Committees
Conservation Area Advisory Committees (CAACs) are a way for members of the general public with an interest in heritage to help the council in managing and protecting the historic built environment. We encourages the formation of CAACs and encourage existing groups to take on the role.
CAACs allow national and local amenity societies; independent historical, architectural and planning experts; local residents and businesses to get involved with the planning process. They are voluntary and their existence, area of coverage and membership is decided upon by the groups themselves.
What do CAACs do?
The main role of CAACs in the planning process is to provide a local focus on design, conservation and heritage matters. They assist the council in the formulation of policies and guidance for their conservation area and act as a continuing source of advice on planning issues affecting their area. We inform CAACs of Planning and Conservation Area Consent Applications and relevant planning policy consultations, and welcome their assistance and views.
Typically CAACs make observations on applications for planning permission and listed building consent. The CAAC may also: make representations on applications to carry out works to trees within their conservation area or recommend the serving of a Tree Preservation Order (TPO); recommend buildings for statutory listing; assist in the review of the council’s register of local listed buildings of merit and comment on conservation area appraisals and policy documents.
