It’s important that our heritage is preserved, not just for now but for future generations to enjoy.”

The consultation on the proposed conservation area appraisal and management plan for Waddington, which begins on 24th  February 2020 proposes revisions to the boundary areas and includes a description of individual character areas and features that are of special interest, and once adopted will be used to develop a robust framework for planning decision making.
