Papplewick Conservation Area Appraisal & Management Plan (February 2018)

A Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan has been prepared for Papplewick.  The appraisal identifies a number of key elements that define the Conservation Area’s special character and historic interest; and also includes proposals to extend the boundaries of the Conservation Area.  The Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan will be used to guide decisions on planning applications within the Papplewick Conservation Area.

General Information on Conservation Areas

Areas of special architectural or historic interest are designated as Conservation Areas to help preserve and enhance them for future generations.Once an area is designated as a Conservation area, the Council needs to:

  3. Pay special attention to the desirability of preservation or enhancement of an area when exercising planning controls, including:

The Council also needs to make planning decisions that ‘preserve and enhance’ the Conservation Area, by:

Designation of a Conservation Area does not imply an embargo on development but it does give Gedling Borough Council additional controls over the demolition of buildings and the design of new development. We advise anyone wishing to carry out work in a Conservation Area, including works to trees, to seek our advice first by contacting the Council’s Development Control team:
