Laura Sandys Civic Voice Vice-president said: “With 249 conservation areas being nominated, it shows that people are proud of where they live. The shortlist comprises conservation areas that have been revived through community leadership, through to areas which have been revitalised through financial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Conservation areas designated in recent years are on the shortlist, along with some of the very first conservation areas designated in the 1960s. Conservation areas that are at the heart of Heritage Action Zones have made the list, so too have areas that are still on the Heritage at Risk register. Conservation areas with Article 4 Directions have been selected, so too, ones with up to date appraisals and management plans. Conservation areas in the North, South, East and West, Urban and Rural, large and small are all on this shortlist as we work together to help identify England’s favourite conservation area.”
