Historic City Design Guide 8 March 2012

Minister Attwood launches Design Guide for Historic City Conservation Area

Environment Minister Alex Attwood has launched a Design Guide for Historic City Conservation Area, which will protect the area’s special architectural and historic character.

This Design Guide also alters the boundary of the Conservation Area as originally designated in 1977. The Historic City Conservation Area now includes additional areas around Carlisle Road, Horace Street, Hawkin Street, Henry Street, Grove Place, a small section of John Street and a small extension to Waterloo Place. A small area has also been excluded which is now part of the Foyleside Shopping Centre.

Alex Attwood explained: “Along with the recently published Magee Design Guide the publication of the Historic City Design Guide today should improve our understanding of the unique characteristics that make up the city and help us all to preserve or enhance its character of appearance.

“The new guide will provide us with a better understanding of the distinctive attributes of the Conservation Area. It will assist the Department in managing change, within the Conservation Area and its setting, in order to ensure that its special character is protected.

With regard to recent events within the city, Alex Attwood went on to say: “In the recent instance of the demolition of a non–listed building in the city illustrates, albeit demolition required on health and safety grounds, the Department’s powers are not limitless. It is important therefore that we strive to spread awareness of the many benefits both social and economic that conservation area status can bring.”
