Conservation character appraisals

We have an obligation to review, from time to time, the borough's conservation areas and to formulate and publish proposals to ensure they are properly preserved and, wherever possible, enhanced.

By undertaking conservation area reviews, we aim to improve the understanding of the historical context for the area, provide residents with an opportunity to have a say in the 'management' of the area and provide a useful tool to guide future development and planning policies for the area.

Character appraisals are undertaken in full consultation with local residents, landowners, local interest groups and the appropriate Parish Council.
