In 2015, a number of local residents in Earlsdon submitted a petition to the City Council requesting to designate parts of Earlsdon a Conservation Area. The City Council proposed that an assessment was carried out to assess whether it is of sufficient architectural and historic interest.
The Council held two workshops on the 8 and 10 October 2016 at the Earlsdon Methodist Church Hall to involve local community groups and residents in the assessment process. These looked at the historic character of Earlsdon, to then inform a future decision whether to make Earlsdon a Conservation Area. Thanks to all those that took part. A report about the workshop process has been produced.
What happens next? - The Council continues to work with the local community (via the local neighbourhood groups (SENA, NENA, HERA, etc) in Earlsdon, the Earlsdon Research Group, Friends of Spencer Park and the Coventry Society) to complete the characterisation exercise that we started in the workshops, as well as completing the historic building recording for buildings of special local interest. [View the characterisation and building recording forms.] We will take these, as well as the comments from the workshops, to write up a draft Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan. This draft document will then be published for consultation. However, this work has unfortunately been delayed but there will be another chance to comment. Once we have a final version of these documents, they'll then be taken to the Council's Planning Committee, for a final decision on whether Earlsdon becomes a Conservation Area.
