Archived press release
Date Published: 31/07/12
A conservation area in Aylesbury Vale has been extended to ensure it is better protected for the future.
Following a review of the conservation area for Aston Sandford, the district council, which has responsibility for designating and reviewing conservation areas, has decided to extend its boundaries.
The Aston Sandford conservation area, originally designated in 1990, has been extended to include more of the village, including Hunters View, Farm Cottage, Field Cottage and Sandford End.
Conservation areas are defined as areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. They have greater protection against demolition and work to trees, and reduced permitted development rights meaning planning permission may be required for work that does not need it elsewhere.
Consultation was carried out on the conservation area review and comments received were incorporated into the final version which was agreed by the council’s cabinet.
The adopted conservation area review and revised boundaries can be viewed on the council's website (see link below).
