Conservation Area Appraisals

Conservation area appraisals were prepared for all 17 conservation areas in North Lincolnshire between 2001 and 2005. The conservation area appraisals define and record what makes these places “areas of special architectural or historic interest”. They identify their special character and qualities, and provide a clear definition of what makes them special. They also set out what it is important to retain.

Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG)

This type of guidance outlines how the council will apply its planning policies to development proposals in conservation areas.  The council has adopted SPG, based on the conservation area appraisals, for each of its conservation areas. These documents are important material planning considerations and should be used when developing a planning proposal through to an application.

Below you will find the appraisal and Supplementary Planning Guidance documents for each conservation area.
