Some of the borough’s conservation areas also have Article 4 Directions on them as well, including:
It means any work that changes the external appearance of a building, or it's grounds in those areas may need planning permission.
We have a duty to protect the borough's heritage, when deciding whether to grant permission or not.
For information on trees in conservation areas, see the conservation areas section of our trees page.
