Lunt Village, Homer Green and Carr Houses Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan Consultation.

Closed 1 Nov 2023

Opened 20 Sep 2023


Local Authorities have a duty to review, from time to time their areas to ensure that places of special architectural or historic interest are being protected. The boundaries of existing Conservation Areas may be revised, new areas may be designated and those areas which have been eroded to the extent that their special character has been lost, may be de-designated.

Under section 72 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, the Council has a legal obligation to ensure that "special attention shall be paid to the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance" of the area when deciding planning applications.  

The first step to protecting the qualities of a Conservation Area is having a thorough understanding of its character. This should then underpin local policies for the area’s protection. This requires a thorough appraisal of the area to assess the contribution of each element (e.g. buildings, boundaries, trees, surfaces, etc.) to the area’s overall character. 


During the public consultation period, residents, the public, businesses and interested groups and organisations are welcome to send us their comments on the draft document.

Council Officers will be available to discuss any aspect of the document on Wednesday 4th October 2023 at the Sunshine Tea Rooms and Events, 1A Victoria Road, Ince Blundell, Liverpool L38 6JE between 5pm – 7pm. If you want to speak to an officer to avoid disappointment, it is advised to book an appointment through or on 0345 140 0845 (option 8).

If this date and time for an appointment is inconvenient, alternative arrangements at the Councils Planning Offices can be made.

Copies of the draft Conservation Area Appraisal can be found on our website at or alternatively copies are available at the Crosby Library, Crosby Rd N, Waterloo, Liverpool L22 0LQ.  The advisory leaflets for the three conservation areas can also be found in the document section of this consultation.

Why your views matter

Public engagement is necessary as part of the process and also to raise awareness of Conservation issues.  The production of appraisals and the management plans of conservation areas directly affect those who live in the area and the public engagement is necessary to provide an opportunity to explain the Councils objectives and to give the residents and interested groups a chance to respond and tell us their views. 

Please note that at the end of this survey, before submitting your results, you will be asked if you want to provide an email address so that you can receive a PDF copy of your response.  This is completely optional.  The email address is only used to send the email to you via the online consultation system provided by Delib as the data processor.  The email address will not be stored with the responses and Sefton Council will not have access to it.  

What happens next

Once the feedback is received we will assess it and add any additional notes to the appraisal as an annex. You can view the appraisals that are published on the website for an example.
