Conservation area appraisals in progress

A conservation area is an 'area of special architectural or historic interest, the character of which is desirable to preserve or enhance'. It is the character of the area rather than the presence of individual buildings, which justifies designation of a conservation area.

As part of the Council's programme to review all 46 conservation areas that lie within the Borough, all conservation areas will be assessed and appraisals, including management proposals, will be compiled. Appraisals will set out what is special about each and will also be used to guide planning decisions in the conservation area. The management proposals give suggestions on how the uniqueness can be preserved and/or enhanced.

Each appraisal will be consulted on before being finalised.

The locations of the conservation areas can be viewed on the Heritage Map.
