Conservation Areas are 'areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance' - Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

There are 35 designated Conservation areas in Bath & North East Somerset. In order to protect the special character of these areas, planning permission is required for certain external works to dwellings which would not normally be required elsewhere.  

If you live in a Conservation Area and are thinking about carrying out alterations to your property or work to trees, it is recommended that you first seek advice from the Council.  Information can be found on our Living in a conservation area web page.

For further information please contact the Council's Planning Services on 01225 394041 or email conservation_andplanning@bathnes.gov.uk, or view the advice and guidance, including links to published conservation appraisals, are available on the left and below in the table on this page.

You can view Conservation Areas and search for properties on the Council’s mapping website. This link will take you directly to the Conservation Area Map.
