Conservation areas

The Council has prepared a number of detailed conservation area appraisals which set out what the special characteristics of each area are that justify its designation and also identify aspects of the area where enhancement is sought. Management plans also set out how we plan to approach the future development of each area. 

The Council is carrying out a programme of review of its conservation area documents to ensure all conservation areas have up-to-date documents.
