The Council has designated a new conservation area in Avondale

The area is a good example of a group of Victorian terraces, laid out and built between 1870 and 1895, of special architectural and historic interest.
The main advantage of conservation area designation is that it provides a greater level of protection from inappropriate development. Most development within conservation areas requires conservation area consent, which is considered against strict policies in the Council’s development plan. There are also stricter limits to permitted development – i.e. development that can be carried out without planning permission.
The conservation area proposals were consulted on for a period of six weeks in September and October 2012.
