Conservation

Stanmore and Edgware conservation areas

The Council adopted the Stanmore Edgware Conservation Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in December 2013.

The purpose of the SPD is to provide a strategic overview of the issues affecting the conservation areas and to provide guidance that will help in their preservation and enhancement.

The SPD has six appendices of conservation area appraisals and management strategies. These provide guidance on their special character and appearance, and ways to preserve and enhance the character of these areas. Permitted development rights in a conservation area already differ somewhat to those outside a conservation area.

The below also contains maps of each conservation area and information on any Article 4 Directions that apply in that area.

Article 4 directions withdraw the right to carry out certain works without planning permission.
