Consultation on the draft Basingstoke Canal Character Appraisal and Management Plan

Give your view on the proposed boundary changes and character appraisal and management plan.

Background

The Basingstoke Canal is an inland waterway, running from Basingstoke in Hampshire to the River Wey Navigation in Surrey. The Basingstoke Canal was designated as a conservation area in 1977 by Hampshire County Council and Surrey County Council.  

There is currently no Conservation Area Appraisal or Management Plan for the section of the conservation area within Rushmoor.  

Draft Character Appraisal and Management Plan  

We have created a pdf icon draft Character Appraisal and Management Plan for the Basingstoke Canal conservation area [10Mb] to identify special architectural and historical interest points, which justifies its designation as a heritage asset, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.  

The draft document proposes some amendments to the conservation area boundary which hasn't been reviewed since 1977. 

Hard copies of the document are available to view at:

  • Rushmoor Borough Council Offices
  • Farnborough Library 
  • Aldershot Library  

Our offices are currently open by appointment only, so please check before you attend.
