Summary

Local planning authorities are responsible for designating conservation areas, though Historic England and the Secretary of State also have powers to create them.

This dataset also contains the boundaries of conservation areas from Historic England, as well as other data found on data.gov.uk and currently contains a number of duplicate areas we are working to remove.

We are also working with a group of local planning authorities to help them publish their conservation areas, and to develop a data specification for conservation areas.

Historic England provide guidance to help householders understand the implications of living in a conservation area for planning applications.
