Conservation Area Appraisals

Every Local Planning Authority has a continuing duty to review its existing Conservation Areas or consider designating new Conservation Areas (Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990) and to formulate and publish proposals for preservation and enhancement of its Conservation Areas. Government guidance (Planning Policy Guidance Note 15) draws attention to this duty to ensure areas are seen to justify their status.

English Heritage also recommends the carrying out of Conservation Area Appraisals that allow for a full assessment of the characteristics of existing and proposed Conservation Areas. Appraisals are also intended to highlight the implications for future preservation and enhancement of Conservation Areas and provide a useful basis for publication of proposals for their preservation and enhancement.

A rolling programme of appraisals for the designated Conservation Areas has commenced.
