Conservation areas

We have revised the boundaries and prepared detailed Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans (CAAMP) for our seven conservation areas.

 

Conservation Area Apprasials and Management Plans

We have set out to establish a conservation and enhancement framework, which enhancement strategies and development management decisions can be based upon.

This is in line with Scottish Historic Environment Policy, Scottish Planning Policy and Planning Advice Note 71 on Conservation Area Management.

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historical interest. These areas are designated to make sure their character and appearance is preserved and enhanced.

What extra controls does conservation area designation apply?

There are tighter controls over demolition and all trees are protected. 

You should note that most permitted development exemptions do not apply to conservation areas or listed buildings.

The demolition of most buildings in conservation areas will need conservation area consent, even if any other permissions under the planning system are required.

Our development management process will seek to apply the conservation area guidance and to ensure that development is of good design quality and takes account of the local conservation context and relevant management plan.
