The Civic Society welcomes the proposed Conservation Area for the Silverthorne Lane Area. This is a fascinating area characterised by the historic industrial land uses and historic routes. With increasing development pressures in this part of the City, designation of the Conservation Area will assist in a proper assessment of the heritage assets as schemes come forward.
Indeed, we urge the City Council to move to the speedy designation of this Conservation Area bearing in mind the development pressure in the area. It will provide a more solid foundation for addressing conservation issues in the area.
