Ribble Valley Borough Council

Conservation areas

Service outline:

Section 69 of the Civic Amenities Act 1969 gives local Councils the power to designate as Conservation Areas, "areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance".

Designation gives control over the demolition of buildings and provides the basis for policies designed to preserve or enhance all the aspects of character or appearance that define an area's special interest.

For more information see Conservation areas.
