Conservation Area


Cabinet approved the Northwold-Cazenove Conservation Area on 15th September 2010. It takes in most of the Ward

Cabinet’s decision was taken following an assessment carried out by Dr Anne Robey. It’s worth a read. It traces the history of the area from late Saxon times to the present. It’s full of maps and photographs

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.


All trees in a Conservation Area are protected. If you want to prune or remove a tree, you must get permission. You can get advice initially from the Tree Officer, Nick Jacobs before you fill in the Application Form. Have a look at our section titled Trees for more detailed information.
