Conservation areas

 Consultation: conservation area appraisal

8 June - 3 August 2018

A conservation area appraisal seeks to record and analyse the character of an area, recognising the heritage assets, identifying the risks that threaten an area's special character and looking at opportunities to enhance them.

The conservation area boundary is reviewed and, where necessary, recommendations are made to alter it.

There is also a management plan and policies to guide people interested in the area.

We are consulting on three conservation area appraisals for:

Public exhibitions will be held where you will be able to view the proposed changes and ask questions about the appraisals.

These will held:

  • Saturday 16 June, 10am - 3pm at Newport Market
  • Thursday 21 June, 4pm - 8pm at Newport Civic Centre

Please email comments by 3 August 2018 to
