As of 22nd March 2017, Full Council has resolved to approve the designation of the new conservation area boundaries across the Wealden District. The existing conservation area character appraisal documents no longer apply and will be replaced over the next two years with new comprehensive character appraisal documents. The Parish and Town Councils and Local History Societies will be consulted upon to comment on draft character appraisal documents, relevant to their area, prior to adoption.
There is no requirement in The Act for the Local Planning Authority to notify individual property owners affected by the designation of changes to existing boundaries, or the designation of new areas.
There are maps for a new Conservation Areas in Five ashes and for Mayfield and Coggins Mill.
