To ensure its preservation, the Heritage Champions' job needs essentially to educate our young people and harness their enthusiasm to understand their local built inheritance. </p><p>I felt also that, as education is about sowing seeds, the project might even address the skills shortage by suggesting an eventual career prospect for some, as conservation architect, conservation planning officer, master mason, carpenter, etc. </p><p>I began by going into schools, explaining the work of Heritage Champions. Into this was slotted the project. In order to introduce the local built inheritance, I decided to sponsor the recording, first of all, of historic shop fronts through children's accurate drawings of them. These went on show in the Town Hall and prizes were awarded for the best examples. </p><p>Children learnt about building styles, were involved in visits to examine and draw interesting shop fronts. The project grew to include literature/writing, craft work (models as well as tiles), religious studies, IT and music. </p><p>I introduced the project by means of a slide-show of local historic shop fronts, to illustrate just what I meant and provided a list of literary texts and writing ideas, as well as of historic shop fronts in the borough.</p><p><em>Linda Hall, Cllr and Heritage Champion for Tunbridge Wells BC</em> </p></div> Mon, 08 Dec 2008 01:33:30 +0000 admin 321 at http://historictownsforum.org http://historictownsforum.org/node/321#comments The Forum's programme for 2009 evolves http://historictownsforum.org/node/320 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The Forum's programme for 2009 evolves</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="http://historictownsforum.org/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" xml:lang="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 08/12/2008 - 01:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-areas-of-interest field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://historictownsforum.org/taxonomy/term/36" hreflang="en">HTF Events</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-articles field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="http://historictownsforum.org/taxonomy/term/33" hreflang="en">2008 news articles</a></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item">At the Strategy Meeting held on 8 October, Members met to consider the results of the Membership Survey carried out in August and, in the context of the Strategic Priorities set out in the Business Plan, to prioritise topics for the Forum to address in the coming year. <p>There was general consensus that high quality design should cut across all areas of work.

These are used to bring under control a range of works authorised under Article 3 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Orders of 1995 and 2008. </p><p>The EHTF 1992 report entitled <b>'Townscape in Trouble' </b>highlighted the damage that has been caused to the character and appearance of individual historic buildings and entire areas by the many small-scale works that can be carried out without the need for planning permission. However, a local planning authority can restrict these 'permitted development' rights through the making of an Article 4 Direction which can cover one or more properties and they can restrict one or more classes of permitted development. </p><p>The effect of an Article 4 Direction is not that development within a particular category of development cannot be carried out, but simply that it is no longer automatically permitted under Article 3 of the GPDO, but instead instead must be subject to a specific planning application. This does not necessarily mean that an authority will refuse permission for the works but it does enable the authority to retain some control over the design and detailing of the proposed development and to grant permission subject to appropriate conditions. </p><p>Since 1995 a simplified procedure has been available to enable authorities to make Article 4(2) Directions for dwellinghouses in conservation areas, without the need for the Secretary of State's approval. The use of these Directions as well as the earlier 4(1) Directions which require the Secreatry of State's approval, for restricting works within conservation areas was specifically looked into by contacting 72 local planning authorities, spread across the whole of England . </p><p>The authorities consulted as part of the survey had between them designated 2,044 conservation areas, representing some 22% of the stock of conservation areas in England, and 81% of them had Article 4 Directions covering one or more of their conservation areas. In fact some authorities had Directions for every one of their conservation areas (e.g Hart District Council for its 32 conservation areas), though many had high levels of coverage (e.g. Brighton and Hove City Council with 84%, the London Borough of Enfield with 81% and Canterbury City Council with 47% coverage). </p><p>While 19% of authorities consulted had no Article 4 Directions for their conservation areas, notable amongst these being Leeds City Council with 65 conservation areas and Kirklees Metropolitan District Council with 59 conservation areas, many others with a large number of conservation areas had only a few Directions. (e.g. Stroud District Council with just 3 Directions for its 42 conservation areas). </p><p>Of the authorities consulted, the majority reported that the main type of property affected by the extra controls were dwellinghouses, but a number had used Article 4(1) Directions to bring under control 'permitted development' works to commercial properties and residential flats. Notable amongst these authorities Chesterfield Borough Council has introduced controls over the painting of the exterior of all properties within its Town Centre Conservation Area. A few authorities have used Article 4(1) Directions to bring under control permitted development works to agricultural and industrial properties within their conservation areas (e.g. Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council). </p><p>Of the Directions that have been made by the authorities that responded to the survey, 74% had applied the controls selectively within their conservation areas, but some 25% had made 'blanket' Directions, applying the additional controls to all properties within their conservation areas, irrespective whether they were listed buildings or buildings that were not dwellinghouses. </p><p>71% of the Directions made by the authorities that responded to the survey dated from after 1995 when the streamlined system was introduced; this reflecting the large number of Directions that are of the 4(2) variety; that is applying to dwellinghouses in conservation areas. </p><p>While the withdrawal of permitted development rights by an Article 4 direction can give rise to a claim for compensation if a planning application is refused or granted subject to conditions, none of the authorities consulted in the survey reported any claims for compensation being made against their authority. </p><p>An increasing number of local planning authorities are making Article 4 Directions as part of the management plans for their conservation areas and now with the extension of permitted development rights for works within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse that came into operation on 1st October, by the Amended GPDO 2008, <b>authorities need to take action immediately if they are to avoid serious damage to our historic townscapes.</b> </p><p><em>Andrew Dick, </em><em>RPS</em></p></div> Mon, 08 Dec 2008 01:33:27 +0000 admin 318 at http://historictownsforum.org http://historictownsforum.org/node/318#comments New Executive Committee http://historictownsforum.org/node/317 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">New Executive Committee</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="http://historictownsforum.org/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" xml:lang="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 08/12/2008 - 01:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-areas-of-interest field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://historictownsforum.org/taxonomy/term/37" hreflang="en">Executive Committee</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-articles field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="http://historictownsforum.org/taxonomy/term/33" hreflang="en">2008 news articles</a></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><strong>New Executive Committee</strong></p> <p>Sam Howes (Chair) thanked members who were stepping down: Sharon Cosgrove (Oxford), Bill Cotton (Swindon), Ian Heggie (West MASA), David Reed (Canterbury) and Rob Surl (Shropshire).</p> <p>Membership for the coming year was agreed as:</p> <p><strong>Representing Local Authority Members:</strong> <br />Ian Ayres, Newcastle City Council<br />Kim Bennett, Canterbury City Council <br />Sean Coghlan, Lichfield District Council <br />Chris Hargreaves, Birmingham City Council <br />Sam Howes, Chichester District Council<br />Brian Human, formerly Cambridge City Council / outgoing Chair <br />Ian Poole, St Edmundsbury Borough Council <br />Richard Tuffrey, High Peak Borough Council <br />John Wrightson, Worcester City Council <br /><br /><strong>Representing the Partner/Sponsors:</strong> Nick Hayward, RPS <br /><strong>Representing Corporate Members:</strong> Tony Wyatt, Ryders Architecture <br /><strong>Representing Civic & Amenity Societies:</strong> Freddie Gick, Birmingham.</p> <p>Officers were confirmed as: Sam Howes - Chair;

This is subject to continued discussions and consideration of differences in law and practice, and the logistical implications of the wider geographical reach of the Forum, but it will make the Forum more inclusive and enable those across the borders who have supported events and used our guidance documents for many years to engage more closely with the Forum. It will also offer wider funding opportunities.</p> <p>So from January 2009 the organisation will be known as the HISTORIC TOWNS FORUM.</p> <p>The Annual Report was presented to the AGM and Sam Howes (Chair) summarised the work of the Forum during the past year, which had included the publication of two very successful guidance documents - '<strong>Focus of Retail<em>'</em> </strong>and '<strong>Manual for <em>Historic</em> Streets</strong>', conferences exploring the value of the industrial heritage, retail development, streetscape and tourism, as well as a study tour to the Netherlands.</p> <p>The Forum had also contributed to, and participated in, a wide range of activities and responded to consultations from Government and policy making agencies to represent the views of the Membership.</p> <p>Membership continues to grow but the move to Unitary Authorities presents a potential threat to the Forum's income from Membership fees. This will be partly addressed by changes to the fee bands (based on population size) and a small percentage rise in fees, which was agreed by the Meeting.</p> <p>There was also support for the proposal for an additional category of Membership for Town & Parish councils which will be welcomed from January 2009</p> <p>Sam thanked the Sponsor / Partners for their continued support and welcomed the announcement that Bircham Dyson Bell LLP had agreed to support the Forum.</p></div> Mon, 08 Dec 2008 01:33:25 +0000 admin 316 at http://historictownsforum.org http://historictownsforum.org/node/316#comments New Membership Fees for 2009 http://historictownsforum.org/node/315 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">New Membership Fees for 2009</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="http://historictownsforum.org/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" xml:lang="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 08/12/2008 - 01:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-articles field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="http://historictownsforum.org/taxonomy/term/33" hreflang="en">2008 news articles</a></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><table width="700" align="center"> <tbody> <tr> <td height="60" colspan="2">From 1 January 2009 the AGM agreed a small percentage increase to the Membership Fees.
