Bridge Street Conservation Area

Bridge StreetBridge Street Conservation Area

The regeneration of Bridge Street Conservation Area is one of the first projects to come out of the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). Through the process of developing the NDP it was found out that the area had been identified as at-risk by Historic England due to ‘severe dilapidation and loss of detailing.’ The Parish Council set up a Working Group in 2017 which is open to residents and local organisations to lead on the project to improve the area.

The first stage was to consult with the public including residents, businesses, organisations and visitors to find out their views of the Conservation Area and how they would like to see it regenerated. The results from this are available in the Bridge Street Consultation Report. From this consultation, a vision for the area has been created. Vision: Bridge Street Conservation Area will be a vibrant, well maintained place to live, work, and visit. Its historic character, architectural heritage and waterway will be celebrated, preserved and enhanced, providing an enjoyable public space that current and future generations are proud of.


A Landscape Architect was commissioned to create a draft Masterplan for the area, based on public consultation results. The Masterplan will guide the regeneration ensuring a coherent scheme. Consultation on the draft Masterplan is being carried out in December 2018 with consultation events arranged for  local residents, local businesses and local agencies.

The draft Masterplan and supporting information is available below:
