arrowConservation Areas

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historic interest that have character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.

They are designated to manage a change in a way that will preserve the character of the area. It is not only the buildings that contribute to the historic character of the areas. Other factors that contribute include:

  • The form of the settlement.
  • Boundaries.
  • Spaces between buildings.
  • Street surfacing.
  • Green spaces, trees and other historic features all have a part to play.

Any new development should be designed with consideration for how it will reserve the historic character of the conservation area.

  • Demolition of a building
  • Cladding a building
  • Alterations to the roof
  • Extensions above 50 cubic metres
  • Satellite dishes
