Consultation is currently underway on the Draft Character Assessment and Management Plan for the Minera Conservation Area. It seeks to ensure that the special character and appearance of the Area is fully recognised so that it can be preserved or enhanced for future generations.

Secondly, the Management Plan which sets out proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the area as well design guidance for alterations to existing properties and for new development.

A summary of the document will be displayed at Minera School Hall, Minera Hall Road, Minera between 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm on Thursday 8 November 2012 where the Conservation Officers will be available on the day.
