Conservation area appraisals

The district council has been drawing up a programme of Conservation Areas Appraisals in Uttlesford.

The aim is to investigate the best way to protect our heritage in a time of increasing pressures.

Each appraisal examined the qualities of the area and identified potential changes that are positive and others that may be damaging. The existing boundaries of the conservation areas have been reviewed and suggestions for adjustments made. Management proposals have been put forward which, for example, have included a range of appropriate environmental and highway improvements.

The end product is an illustrated document, which following consultation and adoption, will now be used as a planning tool to secure environment improvements and to protect the qualities of the area through the Development Control process.

All of the Conservation Areas in the district have now been surveyed. The approved reports and maps of the boundaries can be found below.
