Planning authorities should have up-to-date Conservation Appraisal & Management Plan, which defines the characteristics of Conservation Areas.
If an area has special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance then the council is required to designate it as Conservation Area.
Local Authorities are encouraged to define the special architectural or historic characteristics of a Conservation Area through regular character appraisals & management plans.
