Details of conservation areas

Areas and individual buildings of 'special architectural or historic interest' can be designated as conservation areas to protect their heritage against detrimental development.

Every local authority has a duty to determine which parts of its area are designated as a conservation area.  Havant Borough has fourteen designated conservation areas with a diverse range of size and character.

Town centres at Havant and Emsworth have been designated, as well as smaller groups of buildings at Lymbourn Road and North Hayling.

Conservation Areas often centre around a listed building within urban areas, but not always, as in the case of Sir George Staunton Conservation Area, an historic parkland with farm buildings and follies. 

The last review of conservation areas in the borough was carried out in the early 1990s, the council is currently undertaking a programme to carry out an up to date review, including the production of a character appraisal and management plan.  A timetable of this review is set out  below along with a map of all the conservation areas in the borough.
