Conservation areas

The streets and buildings of our towns and villages are part of the historic character of England. Each townscape tells the story of its unique development, and gives us a sense of place, continuity and cultural identity.

Where these places are of special architectural or historic interest or deserve to receive careful protection, they can be designated as conservation areas. However, this does not mean that they have to remain frozen in time, change is often necessary to accommodate the demands of modern living. As our historic town and village centres are always likely to attract new development, the challenge is how to enhance, rather than detract from, their special, local character.

Lease extensions
