CHAPTER 1 –

CHAPTER 1 – INTRODUCTION & PLANNING POLICY CONTEXT What is a conservation area? Denham Conservation Area Local planning authorities have a statutory duty to designate as conservation areas any “areas of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance” (section 69 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990). Effect of designation Conservation-area designation imposes additional controls over demolition, minor development and a measure of protection for trees. The Council has produced a leaflet “Guidance for Residents” which is reproduced in the Appendix. In exercising their planning powers, local planning authorities must pay special attention to the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of conservation areas. Planning in South Bucks The Council’s current policies relating to conservation areas are contained in the South Bucks District Local Plan which was adopted in March 1999. As the new Local Development Framework emerges the Local Plan policies will gradually be replaced by Development Plan Documents. Conservation Area appraisals will not become Supplementary Planning Documents but their provisions will be a “material consideration” when the Council is exercising its functions as the local planning authority. Archaeology and planning Archaeological information is held on the County Sites and Monuments Record and regularly updated. The effect of development on archaeological remains is a material planning consideration. Applicants for planning consent may be required to undertake field evaluations to inform decisions and/or conditions may be applied to safeguard archaeological interests. For further information and advice contact the County Archaeological Service on 01296-382927. Background to the designation Denham Conservation Area was first designated in 1971. As part of its programme to review all its conservation areas, having taken into account changes within the area as well as current legislation and guidance on conservation areas, South Bucks District Council formulated proposals for amendments to the boundaries of the Denham Conservation Area. Local residents were consulted on these proposals and invited to submit their comments by way of a questionnaire. Additional information on the proposals was provided by way of an exhibition in the Denham Parish Office during December 2005. Following a largely positive response to the consultation the Conservation Area was re-designated with amended boundaries on 31st March 2006. 2 Introduction & planning policy context

Denham Conservation Area The extent of the revised conservation area is shown on the map on page 1. The purpose of this appraisal is to define and record the special architectural and historic interest of Denham Conservation Area. It has been prepared on the basis of a survey of the area undertaken from public roads and paths, historical research, information from residents and the other sources mentioned in the “Sources” section of this document. However no appraisal can ever be completely comprehensive. The omission of any particular building, feature, view or space should not be taken to imply that it is of no interest. This appraisal will inform local planning policies, development control decisions and any future proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the character or appearance of the conservation area.

The tall building in the distance is the Falcon public house. 3 Introduction & planning policy context
