Conservation areas

There are 10 conservation areas in the district, chosen because of their special architectural or historic interest. 

Development must preserve or enhance the character of conservation areas. 

To carry out work on trees in one of these areas you should complete either: 

  • a notification of intent
  • application to carry out work on a tree protected by a tree preservation order

We have prepared and adopted character appraisals for all 10 conservation areas and you can see them below.
