This page contains details about the Spa Lane conservation area including its appraisals and listed buildings.
Spa Lane Conservation Area was first designated in 1989. The area includes Spa Lane and Mowsley End, together with the adjacent areas fronting onto Bull Head Street. The area consists of mixed residential and industrial use buildings.
There are two Listed Buildings within the Conservation Area which were once occupied as a farmhouse, while other buildings along Spa Lane exhibit long first storey windows which indicate they were used for framework knitting in the past.
Conservation Area Appraisal and Development Control Guidance
An Appraisal and Development Control Guidance has been prepared for the Spa Lane Conservation Area, this fulfils our duty to draw up and publish proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the area as required by the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.
The Spa Lane Conservation Area Appraisal and Development Control Guidance were subject to public consultation from Tuesday 11th July 2006 to Tuesday 22nd August 2006. After considering representations received, the decision was made on 19th December 2006 to adopt the Appraisal, Development Control Guidance and amend the Conservation Area boundaries which took effect from Monday 15th January 2007.
Amendments to the boundary meant the following properties were included within the Conservation Area: Former Queens Head Public House site; No. 2 Bull Head Street; St Wolstan’s House; St Wistan’s Church and No. 14-18 (even numbers only) Glebe Close. The following property was excluded from the Conservation Area: No. 2 Shearsby Close.
