The Square Conservation Area
The Square was originally designated as a Conservation area in 2001.
This character appraisal examines The Square Conservation Area and describes why it is an area of special architectural and historical interest. Its purpose is to help inform the design of any future development proposals so that they enhance the area and acknowledge its features.
The Square Conservation Area Character Appraisal was originally adopted in December 2011 following a period of public consultation. The appraisal has been reviewed and some minor changes proposed. The revised document was published for consultation between 29 November 2016 and 5 January 2017.
The revised version of The Square Conservation Area Character Appraisal was adopted at the end of January 2017.
