What are Conservation Areas
Planning Authorities are required to decide whether parts of
their areas are of special architectural or historic interest, the
character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or
enhance. They can then designate these areas as conservation
areas. Building works, demolitions, works to trees, placement of
satellite dishes and alterations to buildings in
Conservation Areas are subject to extra planning controls.
This ensures that new development proposals preserve the character
of areas designated for their special architecture. The Council has
policies with regard to development in Conservation Areas which are
set out in the Borough Local Plan Review 1996 – 2006, Chapter 5,
Environment, which you can view online.
