Budget Consultation for 2019/2020
The City Council is the only organisation exclusively dedicated to serving Worcester’s 102,314 residents, but we
face tough decisions as we consider how your money should be spent.
The Council needs to reduce costs and increase income because of the reductions in our grant from central
government. We are part-way through a programme of efficiencies that are planned to save nearly £3 million;
however we will still need to generate income to maintain our services to you. This consultation will form an important part of the council’s challenging work in preparing its budget for 2019-2020.
The deadline for responses is 11 November 2018.
Park Avenue proposed Conservation Area and Draft Appraisal and Article 4 Direction
Worcester City Council would like to hear your views on the proposed designation of the Park Avenue Conservation Area and proposed Article 4 Direction.
A draft “Conservation Area Appraisal” for Park Avenue has been produced. The appraisal assesses the special historical and architectural interest of the area, and will be used to provide a sound basis for development management decisions and contribute to local plan making once the area is designated.
Article 4 Directions are used to restrict permitted development rights. In conservation areas they are frequently used to protect the character of an area from potentially harmful effects of development of buildings or their surroundings.
Closing date: 14 December 2018.
