Rodmersham Green Conservation Area

This consultation ends on  Wednesday 21 September, 2022.

Working in partnership with Peter Bell Historic Building Consultancy, Swale Borough Council has carried out a review of the Rodmersham Green Conservation Area in the parish of Rodmersham.

The review took the form of:

  • a Conservation Area Character Appraisal which explains the special architectural and historic interest of the area
  • a Management Plan which provides guidelines for potential enhancement work/projects and ongoing development management
  • proposals for revisions to the existing Conservation Area boundary

The document and its contents were recommended for approval by the Council’s Cabinet at its meeting in April 2022. However, this was subject to some further appropriate changes to the conservation area boundary (unfortunately not picked up at the outset) being subject to further consultation for a period of 21 days.

Before confirming the proposed further changes to the boundary of the Conservation Area, the Borough Council is therefore keen to listen to the views of local residents and businesses.

The revised conservation area document (which incorporates valuable feedback from the initial consultation) can be downloaded (PDF 4862kb).

You can also view the revised document:

  • in hard copy/paper format at Sittingbourne Library, Central Avenue, Sittingbourne, ME10 4AH
  • at Swale House, East Street, Sittingbourne, ME10 3HT
  • (for Rodmersham residents only) in hard copy/paper format following a prior telephone request from the Parish Clerk (Mrs Lena Jordan – Tel. 01795 470753)

Comments/feedback on the Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan document should be provided in written form only and sent either by email or post to the relevant addresses shown above no later than Wednesday 21st September 2022.

We regret it may not be possible to take comments received after this date into account in finalising the document.

The results of the consultation exercise will be reported to the Borough Council’s Elected Members for consideration along with recommendations to finalise and adopt the Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan document (PDF 4862kb) (taking into account any appropriate changes arising from feedback).

Conservation Area designation and review is a long and well established way of shaping and managing the future of our cherished historic areas. We hope you will be able to find the time to look at the documents (prepared in liaison with Rodmersham Parish Council and West Downs Ward Member, Cllr. Monique Bonney) and to let us have any constructive feedback you might wish to make regarding the further proposed boundary changes.
