Conservation Area

Winteringham Conservation Area 

Although conservation areas mean some extra planning controls and considerations, which appear to be rather onerous, these exist to protect the historic and architectural elements which make Winteringham such a special place in which to live. They are most likely to affect owners who want to work on the outside of their building or any trees on their property. 

Your house

Being in a conservation area might mean that your house is affected by special controls (called 'Article 4 Directions'). These restrict work you can normally do without planning permission such as replacing a door, gates or window or altering gutters and downpipes. Article 4 information can be found by clicking on this link

These controls are tailored to each area by the council, and are put in place when there are particular elements of local buildings they want to protect.
