Our draft revised Moor Park Conservation Area Appraisal is now ready for public consultation.
The revised appraisal re-assesses the special historic interest of the area in line with current legislation and local planning policies and sets out proposals for future preservation and improvements.
The objective is to understand and explain why the area is special and which elements within the area contribute to this special quality and those which do not.
For more information please find the Moor Park Conservation Area Appraisal (draft revision) in the documents section on this page.
