About conservation areas

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historic interest which have a specific character or appearance which enhances the local area.  By designating a conservation area it means these features are better preserved and helps to ensures it will continue its valuable contribution to the wider district

There are 72 designated conservation areas across South Oxfordshire – you can view these on our conservation and listed buildings map.

As a local authority, we have a duty to designate conservation areas, review area boundaries and carry out conservation area appraisals to provide clarity on the special interest of such areas. When we carry out a boundary review or area appraisal we will ask the local community for their views.
