Current conservation area consultation

In 2000 we started reviewing our conservation areas and have completed the reviews as listed at the bottom of this page; click on the name to go to the web page about each conservation area.

We are currently reviewing the Mentmore Conservation Area.

The draft Mentmore Conservation Area boundary and appraisal document are currently out for public consultation.  The consultation will last from Monday 16th September until Friday 8th November 2019.

A map of the proposed Mentmore conservation area boundary changes, the draft Mentmore Conservation Area Appraisal document (please note this is a large document and may take time to open) and a leaflet giving general information about conservation areas are available below:
