The role of the Council's Conservation Officer in the planning department is to protect the Borough's historic environment. This is done through management of proposed change to or within designated heritage assets (such as Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas and Scheduled Monuments) and through management of the location and form of new development, seeking high quality, good design in context, respecting the character and appearance of the area. Good conservation planning decisions make good places, good places are places where people want to live and good places are economically successful places. The Borough has many heritage assets, including over 540 Listed Buildings, 17 Conservation Areas and 20 Scheduled Monuments. Further information can be found by using the links below.

Pre-application advice is offered on proposals for change to Listed Buildings, to buildings within Conservation Areas and to buildings in the setting of Scheduled Monuments, to guide better applications.
