Carrying out works or demolition in a conservation area
You need to obtain consent if you want to demolish or carry out any works on a property within a conservation area.
We offer pre-application advice and information
You can use our development enquiry service for pre-application advice and information (£50 for one hour) which involves a face to face meeting at Ballard House with a historic environment officer to discuss your proposal or to check if your property is in a conservation area. They can advise if consent is required and guide you through the process.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01752 304366 for more information and to book an appointment.
