Residents in Luddendenfoot will have the special qualities of their village preserved, after Calderdale Council’s Cabinet agreed an Appraisal and Management Plan for the area.
Calderdale Council has worked with Luddendenfoot Conservation Society to produce a document to promote respect for the heritage of Luddenden, and maintain the area’s character for future generations.
The Luddenden Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan looks at the history, development and appearance of Luddenden, and ways to retain these characteristics. The Plan has been amended following consultation with residents and ward councillors.
There are currently 20 Conservation Areas in Calderdale. These are places which the Council considers to be of architectural or historic importance. The Luddenden Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan offers guidance to help maintain the attractive character of the village. It will also contain information and advice which will be useful when planning applications are being assessed. It is important for residents to be aware of the Plan, as it could affect future proposals for properties in the area.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Environment, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“Conservation areas are important to help preserve the heritage and character of Calderdale.
“The plan for Luddendenfoot will ensure that the unique qualities of the village are preserved for future generations.”
