Pyrton Parish Council, with the assistance of South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC), has produced a draft conservation area appraisal for Pyrton. We are proposing to revise the existing conservation area boundary.
You have an opportunity to comment on the appraisal during a public consultation period running from 11 July to 5pm on 22 August 2018.
There will be a meeting regarding this in Pyrton Village Hall on Monday 23rd July at 6.30pm with Samantha Allen, Conservation Officer from South Oxfordshire District Council.
The purpose of the appraisal is to define the special architectural or historic interest of the conservation area. It will support SODC’s duty to consider the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of Pyrton when determining planning applications.
As well as being a material consideration in planning decisions, conservation area designation also affects the following:
- Some works need planning permission (reduced permitted development rights). This includes demolition works. For more information click here.
- Works to trees that have a trunk diameter over 75mm when measured at 1.5m from ground level. These works require notice to be given to council at least six weeks in advance of the works. For more information click here.

You can view the appraisal on SODC’s website.
Hard copies of the documents are available to view at St Mary’s Church, Pyrton. The documents are also available to view at SODC’s office, 135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Abingdon, OX14 4SB during usual opening hours.
