Local Toilets Strategy

7 February - 6 March 2020

Newport City Council has a responsibility to assess the community’s need for toilets and to put in place a local toilets strategy to identify actions required to meet this need.

To help us prepare this draft strategy, we gathered the views of residents and visitors on whether there were enough toilets available to the public across the Newport area, in the right places, and whether the types of toilets available met the needs of the public.

Before the strategy is finalised, we would welcome your views which can be given by completing the local toilets strategy survey.

Additional Protection to Conservation Areas

14th February - 13th March

Following a process of Conservation Areas appraisals, the Council is proposing to introduce additional protection to three Conservation Areas within Newport: Caerleon, Stow Park & The Shrubbery.

This additional protection comes in the form of an Article 4(2) Direction. This direction means that some alterations to a domestic property within either of the three conservation areas, cannot be made without the need for planning consent e.g. removal or renewal of windows and doors.

Please follow the links to view the Article 4(2) Directions in full:

The directions have been sent to each property within the Conservation Area and if you wish a copy can be made available to view at the Civic Centre, please email the address below with your request. You are invited to provide comments to the Council concerning any of the Article 4(2) Direction before 13 March 2020 by emailing ldp.consultation@newport.gov.uk..

It is important to note that the effects of the Article 4(2) Directions are in place as of the 14 February 2020 yet are subject to consultation. Following the consultation period, the Council will consider the responses received and consider whether to formally confirm the Direction. Conformation will be send to those properties directly affected
