Conservation Areas

We are committed to the concept of sustainable development and the preservation of our historic environment. We have a duty to determine applications for Listed Building and Conservation Area consent.

There are currently 43 conservation areas in the borough. Conservation areas ensure planning permission is needed for changes to buildings which would normally be permitted.

Changes requiring consent include, but not limited to:

  • Cladding a building
  • Inserting dormer windows
  • Putting up a satellite dish visible from the street
  • Works to trees

For further details on when planning permission is required visit the planning portal.

If you are still unsure if you need permission, contact the Planning team.
