Conservation Areas are areas that are preserved due to the special architectural or historical interest and character they possess.
The emphasis for Conservation Areas is on ensuring local character is strengthened, and not diminished, by change. Conservation Area provide a much broader protection than individually listed buildings, as all features within a Conservation Area are recognised as part of its character, and therefore protected.
