Proposed Hucknall Conservation Area

A public drop in session, where officers will be available to discuss the proposed conservation area, will be held at Hucknall Library on Tuesday, 27th November 2018 from 3.00pm – 7.00pm.

Proposed Hucknall Conservation Area out for consultation

Ashfield District Council is seeking public feedback on the proposed designation of a Conservation Area for Hucknall town centre. 

A Conservation Area is an area of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. 

The designation of a Conservation Area brings special planning controls, especially over the demolition of buildings and felling of trees.

The proposed Hucknall Conservation Area has been prepared by the Council to help preserve and enhance Hucknall’s special architectural and historic character and appearance.

The Designation Statement and Questionnaire sets out Hucknall’s special character and appearance, outlines the effect of Conservation Area Designation and includes a Questionnaire on the proposals.  It is available to view here.

A copy of the boundary map of the proposed Conservation Area can be found here
