Conservation Area Management Plan
The Padiham Conservation Area Management Plan, which was adopted by the Council’s Executive on the 6th June 2017, provides a framework of proactive actions for preserving and enhancing the character and appearance of Padiham Conservation Area for the period 2017 to 2027 and will be subject to regular monitoring and review to ensure that priorities remain relevant, to assess progress and to make any amendments necessary to reflect changes in circumstances
The purpose of the Management Plan is to advise on how best to actively manage the Padiham Conservation Area and develop proposals to deal with the issues threatening the special character and appearance of the area, with the main objective of positively managing future change. The successful implementation of the management actions will depend on the co-operation and enthusiasm of other organisations and stakeholders including property owners and the local community. To be effective the plan must be actively supported by all, with stakeholders working together to strengthen and promote the area’s built and natural heritage.
