Conservation area maps, appraisals and management strategies

Planning guidance for conservation areas

Character appraisals and management strategies for conservation areas are used to help determine planning applications for external alterations and new development. They also form background documents informing the production of local plans.

Each character appraisal features the history and character of the conservation area and what makes it special.

The management strategy recommends ways to preserve and enhance the area. This could include proposals for changes to the boundary, and buildings to be added to the list of locally listed buildings. The purpose is to:

  • assess whether the existing planning controls are adequate to protect the character of the area, and if not, to recommend additional controls
  • encourage building repairs and alterations that are sympathetic to the style and character of the buildings in the area.
