Following engagement with keys stakeholders on how we can help our Conservation Area Advisory Committees (CAACs) to work better, we asked for your views on establishing a borough-wide Heritage Advisory Panel, to deal with significant heritage in the borough and to improve the consistency of information provided and reach across the borough.
We received 15 responses to the consultation. Whilst respondents agreed that a borough-wide approach was needed, there was less agreement on the changes to the existing CAAC arrangements and whether the creation of a new Heritage Advisory Panel would achieve its goals.
Following the consultation a decision was made that the council would cease to provide a planning officer to attend CAAC meetings (in person or virtually) from 1 January 2021. The Council continues to publish all planning applications online and encourages each CAAC to use the online comment facility to submit their representations. It was also agreed a Heritage Advisory Panel would not be established in Barnet.
This consultation has now closed
