Conservation area appraisals and management plans


Adopted conservation area appraisals

The government has recommended that local authorities should ensure that all their conservation areas are appraised on a regular basis so that the areas would always have relatively up-to-date appraisals of what made them 'areas of special architectural or historic interest'.

Significant work has been undertaken towards achieving this goal and more than 96 percent of conservation areas have relatively up-to-date appraisals which have been adopted by the council.

All adopted appraisals are available for inspection on this page and will be used as background documents in support of the development plan and as a material consideration in the determination of relevant planning applications.

You can view all appraisals below:

Conservation area management plans

 

What is a conservation area management plan?

Conservation areas are intended to preserve or enhance the special interest of a place. A conservation area is designated because of its special architectural or historic characteristics (which is set out in a document called a character appraisal). A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance the conservation area and how it will monitor this.

A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance a conservation area and how it will monitor this.

Not all conservation areas have a management plan.  In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country don’t have one.  In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

Does every conservation area have a management plan?

No. In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country do not have a management plan. In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

How will you review the success of the management plan?

The council will collect information about the conservation area (such as the number of planning applications) through an annual survey. This will allow us to measure the condition of the conservation area at that time. Over time, this will allow us to tell whether the condition is improving.

Where can I view the conservation area management plans?

Currently, there are two conservation area management plans, which are available to download below:
