Conservation areas review

We have a duty to formulate and publish policies and proposals for the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas.

The conservation area review will produce:

  1. An up to date 'character appraisal' identifying the character of the area including buildings and spaces, plus positive and negative features.
  2. A 'management plan' which indicates how the character of the area will be preserved and enhanced by a variety of means including development control, management of the public realm and potential environmental enhancements.
  3. A 'boundary review' to see if any areas should be added or excluded.

The conservation area appraisal will be produced in consultation with local communities and stakeholders and the final documents will be adopted as supplementary planning guidance to the unitary development plan (policies EV9 and EV10) and the subsequent local development plan.
