From time to time Conservation Areas are reviewed with the aim to provide more detailed information about the designated area e.g. what quality makes it special and why it is important to protect the area. The reviews also set out how Conservation Areas can be improved.
The most recent reviews were Beckingham and Silk Willoughby Conservation Areas which were formally adopted by Full Council in October 2019, followed by Metheringham which was adopted in November 2018 and Branston Conservation Area which was adopted in March 2018. Prior to that, Coleby and Rauceby Hospital Conservation Areas were adopted in September 2017. The new boundaries, appraisals and management plans can be found in the downloads section below.
To date, North Kesteven District Council has successfully undertaken 15 Conservation Area Reviews. In 2006 and 2007 appraisals of the Conservation Areas in Wilsford, Billinghay, Heighington and Harmston were undertaken. In 2008 a review of the Conservation Area in Nocton was undertaken. In 2015 Heckington Village and Station Conservation Areas were reviewed and a management plan prepared. In 2016 Sleaford, Bassingham and Navenby appraisals and management plans were adopted. Copies of the adopted documents are available to download.
