Conservation Areas

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historic interest. They are identified so we can protect them and make further improvements to their appearance.

When somewhere becomes a conservation area, the following rules apply: 

  • Demolition of most buildings in the area are controlled, whether they are listed or not
  • Trees in the area are protected
  • Control is strengthened, so that the area can be preserved well and further improvements to its appearance can be made.

More information on conservation areas can be found on the Planning Portal (external link)


Chatsworth Square and Portland Square Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan

A appraisal and management plan for the Chatsworth Square and Portland Square Conservation Area has been adopted.

Brisco and Wreay Conservation Area Designations

A public consultation is underway on the proposal to designate Brisco and Wreay as conservation areas.

Both Carlisle areas have been assessed by Carlisle City Council and are well-preserved rural villages whose qualities could be safeguarded further by designation. The potential of each village for designation as separate conservation areas is proposed, subject to the outcome of public consultation.

The public consultation will take place for eight weeks between Monday 11 November 2019 and Monday 6 January 2020 with a public consultation event to be confirmed soon.
