Conservation areas are "areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance". There are 24 conservation areas in NW Leicestershire.
The designation of a conservation area introduces control over the demolition of most buildings and some boundary treatments. It removes some of your 'permitted development' rights and affects the way that we would determine an application for Planning Permission. It introduces controls over works to trees and it may affect the way that the Building Regulations apply to your property.
Please follow the links below for some general guidance on the implications of conservation area designation. In most cases these implications do not apply to listed buildings, which are subject to separate and much stricter controls.
