Fritwell Conservation Plan

This appraisal was the subject of public consultation. A public exhibition and meeting were held on 29th October in Fritwell Village Hall. These events were attended by over 30 people and the appraisal amended as a result. The Conservation Area boundary has been extended as indicated in section 13. It was approved by the Council’s Executive on 7th January 2007 and will be a material consideration in the determination of planning applications within the conservation area and its setting.
