Conservation areas

What is a conservation area?

A conservation area is an area of special architectural or historical interest where the character and appearance needs to be protected or improved .

There are 16 conservation areas in Coventry. These areas are all different, but have buildings, structures or features of historic or architectural value in them that create a special environment.

Making an area a conservation area shows the Council is committed to these areas and to protecting them. We decide whether a conservation area is created, but carry out full research and consultation with people living and owning property in the area. Conservation areas are not museums but living communities, and so the aim is to guide and control development rather than prevent it.
