What is a Conservation Area? 

Conservation Areas are places of environmental quality and interest.  This could be a mix of uses, historic layout of property boundaries and thoroughfare, characteristic materials, appropriate scaling and detailing of contemporary buildings, the extent to which traffic intrudes and limits the pedestrian use of spaces between buildings, vistas, the quality of shopfronts, street furniture, and hard and soft surfaces - the quality of townscape in its broadest sense.

Additional planning restrictions apply within these areas to ensure that special regard is paid to preserving and enhancing their character or appearance.
