Conservation - Historic Buildings & Local Heritage

 

South Staffordshire is a collection of 36 villages grouped into 27 parishes, plus smaller hamlets, each with their own history and character.

 

The council’s Conservation & Design service works with local people to identify record and preserve this history and character; and also to help manage the changes which are inevitable as these communities evolve and thrive.

 

The Bratch

 

 

As the local planning authority, the council has a duty to advise upon, consider, and grant consent for, all planning applications which affect listed buildings.

 

The council also has responsibility for designating and updating the district’s conservation areas, and for ensuring that any development preserves and enhances their character.

 

In addition, the council has developed and adopted a list of locally important buildings or Local List which identifies and records those aspects of local heritage which are valued by local people.

 

 

 

 

Working in partnership with the War Memorials Trust, the Conservation & Design service also locates and monitors the condition of the district’s war memorials and war graves.

 

Advice is also offered to owners on the repair and maintenance of historic buildings.

 

The council runs its own Conservation & Design Awards Scheme as a part of its commitment to the important role that these factors play in helping to conserve the historic environment and encourage good design.
