Conservation area appraisals

We have completed a programme of conservation area appraisals in Uttlesford.

Arkesden CAA cover thumbnailConservation area appraisals define the importance of each area in terms of its character and appearance.

They are used to:

  • help us make decisions on planning applications in conservation areas
  • recommend amendments
  • set out conservation management proposals for the area

They also form background documents informing the production of local plans.
 

Management proposals

Many appraisals recommend some management proposals. This could include recommendations for changes to the boundary, proposals for repairs or identifying buildings that might be added to the local heritage list.

Their purpose is to:

  • assess whether the existing planning controls are adequate to protect the character of the area, and if not, to recommend additional controls such as Article 4 directions
  • encourage building repairs and alterations that are sympathetic to the style and character of the buildings in the area
     

Find if a building is in a conservation area

You can check if a building, group of buildings or trees is in a conservation area by searching our constraints maps.
