There are a number of rules that apply to building work in a Conservation Area. These cover:

  • Planning permission
  • Windows and doors
  • Roof-lights and dormer roof extensions
  • Ground-floor extensions
  • Gardens
  • Demolition, satellite dishes and solar panels

If you alter your property, you must apply for Conservation Area Consent at the same time as making the regular Planning Application.
