A PUBLIC meeting and consultation are being held on proposals for potential changes to the Malvern Wells Conservation Area.
As part of a review, Malvern Hills District Council is proposing to separate the existing Malvern Wells Conservation Area into two sections – Malvern Wells and Little Malvern.
The Malvern Wells Conservation Area was designated in 1973 under the Civic Amenities Act 1967 as an ‘area of special architectural and/or historic interest’ and was extended in 1995 to include Little Malvern.
The review proposes alterations to the existing boundary to better reflect the special historic and architectural value of the area.
Residents are being urged to have their say as part of a consultation which began on Monday and runs until September 6.
A public meeting will also be held at 6pm tomorrow, Thursday, July 25, at the Wyche Institute, Old Wyche Road, Malvern.
At the get-together the council’s Heritage Manager and Conservation Officer will present the review and answer any questions.
Coun David Harrison, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Infrastructure at Malvern Hills District Council, said regular reviews of the district’s conservation areas were vital to ensure their history, character and beauty were preserved for many years to come.

Hard copies of the review and character appraisal will be available at Malvern Library and the Council House, Malvern.
