Frampton on Severn was first designated as a conservation area in November 1975. The conservation area was reviewed in 2007-8 and some changes were made to the original boundary.  A Conservation Area Statement (CAS) was adopted as Supplementary Planning Advice (SPA) in November 2008.

The Frampton Conservation Area Statement (CAS) contains information about the character and special architectural and historic significance of the conservation area, as well as proposals for its conservation and enhancement. The document is used to guide the interpretation and application of Development Plan policies, including Local Plan Policy ES10.

Article 4(2) Direction

further information Find out which properties are affected and what sort of works are covered by the Direction. 

Although the 'Permitted Development Rights' of houses (and buildings other than shops and flats) are restricted within a Conservation Area, the additional controls brought about by designation of the Conservation Area cannot prevent many changes to these buildings. If unchecked, a successive number of such changes could damage the character of the Conservation Area.

For this reason, the Local Authority made an Article 4(2) Direction on 15th December 2008. Article 4 Directions allow the Local Planning Authority to apply controls to certain works of alteration to specific residential buildings in the conservation area. These works would normally be allowed through domestic ‘Permitted Development Rights'. As a consequence of the Article 4(2) Direction, certain works to specified properties now require an application for Planning Permission, so that their potential impact on the character and special interest of the conservation area can be properly assessed.

In the case of an Article 4(2) Direction, the controls only apply in circumstances where the proposed works are on elevations which front a public highway or public open space.
