If you are proposing development that may have a significant impact on the historic environment, such as a listed building or conservation area, it may be appropriate to present your proposal to the Conservation Advisory Forum. 

The Forum provide expert, constructive and impartial advice on historic buildings and their use, historic landscapes, and conservation areas. The Forum is chaired by the council's Heritage Champion and includes members of local societies, architectural groups and professional bodies with an interest in achieving good design. The constitution (68kb, PDF) and protocol (143kb, PDF) are attached for your information.

If you wish to present your proposals to the Forum, the first step is to discuss this with the Planning Officer managing your application or your enquiry.
