Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans

On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

Local Planning Authorities are required to formulate and publish proposals for the preservation and enhancement of any parts of their area that are designated as Conservation Areas. 

Conservation Area Appraisals provide a basis on which applications for development within the area can be assessed. Management Plans set out the policies and recommendations which are intended to preserve the character and appearance of the area. 

There are currently 15 adopted (updated) Character Appraisals and Management Plans in the Borough.
