What the plan is for

In line with good practice, a Conservation Management Plan has been developed for Madeira Terrace. It brings together the historic information about the Terrace into one document.

Context is important to consider in preserving and enhancing historic structures, especially one as unique as Madeira Terrace.

For that reason, the plan also includes information about the surrounding area.

The value of a Conservation Management Plan is that it safeguards the future of Madeira Terrace as a Grade 2* listed structure.

The sort of activities it will guide are:

  • improvements to the structure and its setting
  • ongoing and future maintenance
  • operation and use of the terraces and the surrounding area

The plan reassures potential funding partners, like the National Lottery Heritage Fund, that we’ll protect any future investment to make sure it’s spent in a way that will allow the Terrace to be enjoyed by everyone, including future generations.

Planning for the future

The Conservation Management Plan includes conservation policies that have already been used to guide the design team and the approach to the whole project.

These policies will continue to guide any future works, management operations and potential uses of the Terrace and the surrounding area.

It will work with other policy areas to make sure future decisions enhance the Terrace and reduce potential negative impacts.

An important aspect of the plan is that it is a living document, which will continue to evolve to take account of changing circumstances.

At the moment we’re updating the plan to take account of initial comments from Historic England, a statutory consultee to the planning process.

After we update the plan, we’ll submit it as supporting documentation with the planning application.

The plan also forms the basis of the Heritage Impact Assessment, a document legally required for planning and listed building consent.

We’ll submit this Heritage Impact Assessment with the planning application in late 2021.

You can find all the planning documentation on the Planning Portal once it’s been validated.
