A Birmingham suburb is to be given extra protection from developers under plans which are set to be given the go-ahead today.
The Moseley Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan will help to identify the special character of the suburb and preserve it for the future.
The plan, expected to be approved by Birmingham City Council's ruling cabinet today, also contains proposals to extend the original boundary of the conservation area.
Under the proposals, development rights in the area will be withdrawn to protect the architectural features of some of Birmingham's most distinctive buildings.
The plan is being spearheaded by Councillor Martin Mullaney (Lib Dem Moseley & Kings Heath) and is backed by the heritage group, the Moseley Society.
The Conservation Area was originally designated in 1983. Moseley is considered one of Birmingham's most historic suburbs, containing the Parish Church of St Mary's, a collection of 18th and 19th Century cottages and a range of distinctive pubs and shops.
