Decision Made

1. That the Bungay Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan attached at Appendix A of report ES/0999 be adopted.


2. That the extensions of the Bungay Conservation Area as shown on the map attached at Appendix B of report ES/0999 be agreed and include those properties included in the schedule attached at Appendix E of report ES/0999.


3. That the Head of Planning and Coastal Management, in consultation with the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Planning and Coastal Management, be authorised to make any presentational or typographical amendments to the Bungay Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan prior to it being published.

Reason for Decision

Under section 71 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 East Suffolk Council has a statutory duty to draw up and publish proposals for the preservation and enhancement of Conservation Areas in its district from time to time.


The document will assist in delivery of the Strategic Plan 2020-2024, by supporting delivery of T01 Growing Our Economy of the Strategic Plan, priority of P03. “Protection and enhancement of the natural, built and historic environment.” 


 It will secondarily support the delivery of priority P01 Build the right Environment for East Suffolk, as it serves to support the policies in the “Up to date local plans proving a strategy for growth and place making.”


 The document supports the implementation of the Policy WLP8.39 – Conservation Areas in the Waveney Local Plan by providing “relevant Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans”.


 Officers judged that the public consultation exercise undertaken had demonstrated that, amongst those who responded that there is a majority in support of the proposals. 


 Officers judged the proposed extensions are appropriate as these areas had been assessed to have architectural and/or historic interest, which it was desirable to preserve and enhance through forming part of the Bungay Conservation Area.


 The minor adjustments to the boundary, to correct mapping errors, were believed to be appropriate to allow the Conservation Area boundary to be logical and concise.

Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

There was an option to not adopt the CAAMP and to continue using the existing CAAMP dating from 2007. However, this document does not take into account changed national guidance, the adoption of the Waveney Local Plan and changed circumstances on the ground.
