The conservation area appraisal for Upper Upnor that was adopted in October 2004, has been reviewed and updated. We are now inviting residents in the area to give their feedback. 

A conservation area appraisal will help us define the qualities that make a conservation area special including:

  • historical
  • architectural
  • townscape qualities.

The character of each conservation area is unique, and by understanding the qualities that make it special we can protect it. We do this by:

  • providing guidance to council officers and developers about how change is managed in the area
  • advising residents on how to look after the area.

Conservation area appraisals can:

  • provide an overview of the history of the area
  • identify features that contribute or take away from its character
  • address future management of the area and provide recommendations for change.
