LORRY SIGNING INITIATIVE

Following concerns raised by local residents at Cobnash about heavy goods vehicles using Hostel Lane, the parish council contacted the county’s highways agency, Balfour Beatty, to ask about ways to encourage such vehicles to use wider roads when passing through the parish.

Drawings from Balfour Beatty, which proposed locations for new lorry signing, and a traffic island by Burnt House on the junction with the B4529, were agreed at the July 2017 meeting of the parish council. A quotation from Balfour Beatty to implement the lorry signing and traffic island at the Burnt House junction was considered at the September 2017 meeting of the parish council, when it was agreed to proceed with an in-depth feasibility study into the provision of the traffic island at the Burnt House junction at a cost of £1,062.56 + VAT.  A decision on the lorry signing quotation was postponed until the outcome of the in-depth feasibility study is known.

The details of the lorry signing initiative are available to download below:

Our Conservation Area

The Parish Council would like to remind you of the Conservation Area that exists in Kingsland. Conservation areas are defined by The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as: “areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”. The Kingsland Conservation Area is highlighted in the map below and a larger version can be seen by clicking here:

A Conservation Area is an area of special interest, not only due to the buildings but also the interaction of the spaces around them and natural features, such as trees and open spaces.
The principal effects of designation are:

  • You must get consent from Herefordshire Council for the demolition of most buildings in the area;
  • You must notify Herefordshire Council in writing on the official notification form six weeks in advance of all proposed tree works. There are fines for non-compliance with conservation area provisions in relation to trees, and a suitably qualified and insured tree surgeon should carry out the tree work;
  • Special publicity must be given to planning applications for development in the area;
  • When assessing planning applications, Herefordshire Council and the Secretary of State take into account the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of the area; and
  • Permitted development rights (the various categories of development that are normally allowed without the need to apply for planning permission) are more restricted within a conservation area. Generally, these extra controls restrict the following –
  • Various types of wall cladding, the insertion of dormer windows, the installation of satellite dishes on walls and roofs facing a highway, the installation of radio masts, antennae or radio equipment housing with a volume over two cubic metres, a reduction in the size of residential and industrial extensions, which may be carried out without the need for planning permission, and the installation of solar panels.

If your building is a listed building the normal controls of listed building consent apply.
