Enfield has 22 conservation areas which we have a duty to preserve and enhance. Part of this duty involves reviewing ‘character appraisals’ of each area, as well as management proposals.
A character appraisal is an in-depth look at all buildings and spaces of significance, and anything that makes an area distinctive. A management proposal looks at the specific ways to preserve and enhance the area. In particular, management proposals set out a plan for the next five years.
To protect particularly important features in a conservation area, we may issue an Article 4 Direction. This means that if you are planning any development, you will have to submit a planning application for certain works that would not normally require it. You will find links to Article 4 Directions in the relevant conservation area pages.
