Strategy for conserving Brighton & Hove's Historic Built Environment
The city has an extremely attractive historic urban environment. The council will protect and enhance this through the conservation of its special areas and by encouraging excellence in architectural design. To assist these aims, a Conservation Strategy [PDF 106kb] was adopted, following a period of consultation, by the council's Environment Committee on 4 September 2003.
This will ensure any requirements for change to the city's historic built environment are managed sensitively and that the council's conservation service is delivered in an efficient and effective way. The strategy relates to conservation policies and proposals in the Local Plan and explains how key conservation issues might be addressed over the next 10 years. It also explains how the council will endeavour to meet its duties and responsibilities to historic areas and buildings under the Planning Acts.
