Have your say on Youlgrave conservation area update
The people of Youlgrave have the chance to comment on a draft update of the Youlgrave conservation area prepared by the Peak District National Park Authority.
The Authority’s draft appraisal looks in detail at the village’s historic buildings and their settings that originally caused it to be given conservation area status in 1982.
Formerly an agricultural and lead mining village, Youlgrave is known for its mediaeval parish church with a twelfth century font. The majority of Youlgrave’s buildings date from the 18th and 19th centuries.
Youlgrave is one of 109 conservation areas in the Peak District National Park - all are reviewed periodically, and the appraisal forms part of this process. No boundary changes are proposed, but it will be important to consult the document when making planning applications in future to ensure the conservation area’s characteristics are not destroyed or undermined.
The draft conservation area appraisal is available for public comment from Friday August 13 to Friday September 17.
Residents are invited to drop into Youlgrave village hall, Holywell Lane, on Tuesday September 7, any time between 4pm and 7.30pm, to talk to conservation officers about it.
Alternatively, the document can be viewed at:
- The Authority’s headquarters at Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell DE45 1AE (tel. 01629 816 200)
- Youlgrave Parish Council, Youlgrave Village Hall , Holywell Lane, Youlgrave
- Post Office , Fountain Square, Youlgrave.
It is also available on-line at www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/youlgrave-caa
Written comments should be sent to the Historic Buildings Section, Cultural Heritage Team at the Authority’s headquarters address. Alternatively email: firstname.lastname@example.org marked “For the attention of the Historic Buildings Section, Cultural Heritage Team”. The deadline for comments is Friday September 17.
