Adopted conservation area appraisals

The East Riding of Yorkshire Local Planning Authority has 106 adopted Conservation Areas. All of the areas have adopted appraisal documents and can be downloaded below.

The adopted Appraisals and Management Plans will be used as background documents in support of the development plan and as a material consideration in the determination of relevant planning applications.

The Authority are also in the process of re-appraising its Conservation Areas with details of its recently adopted Appraisal, current work schedule for re-appraisal of existing areas and proposals for the adoption of new areas outlined below:

Reappraisal of conservation areas

Beginning in 2024, the local authority is beginning a process of re-appraising and re-considering all of conservation area appraisals that have not been updated in the past five years.

The reasons why the council is carrying out a review of all our conservation area appraisals are:

  1. To make sure that our appraisals are up to date, and reflect the current situation on the ground
  2. To make sure that they clearly describe the character and appearance and the special interest of the East Riding’s varied and attractive conservation areas
  3. To allows us to assess whether the boundaries of the conservation areas require revision
  4. To provide uniformity across all of our conservation area appraisals.

These conservation areas will be addressed sequentially starting with those most in need of update. This need will be determined by a consideration of the age of the current appraisal, whether the conservation area is included on Historic England’s ‘Heritage at Risk Register’ and the pressure for development in each of our conservation areas. We intend to take an indicative sequence for re-appraisal will be taken to Cabinet in 2024, following which the first group of conservation areas to be re-assessed will be agreed.

Please keep checking back on this page for further updates.

Bishop Burton

The Local Authority is currently working on updating the Bishop Burton Conservation Area Appraisal, and we will be looking to re-consult publicly on this document shortly. This consultation follows amendments made following a previous public consultation which ran in early 2023.

Details of the consultation period, and how you can provide us with your thoughts and comments will be available shortly, and we will update this page accordingly.

Once this consultation period has finished, the comments received will be considered and a final draft of the appraisal will be prepared to be taken to the authority’s Cabinet for approval.

Conservation area management plans

What is a conservation area management plan?

Conservation areas are intended to preserve or enhance the special interest of a place. A conservation area is designated because of its special architectural or historic characteristics (which is set out in a document called a character appraisal). A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance the conservation area and how it will monitor this.

A conservation area management plan outlines the way in which the council will seek to preserve or enhance a conservation area and how it will monitor this.

Not all conservation areas have a management plan. In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country don’t have one. In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

Does every conservation area have a management plan?

No. In fact, around 75% of conservation areas around the country do not have a management plan. In some cases, often when a conservation area has declined, a management plan is developed as part of efforts to enhance it.

How will you review the success of the management plan?

The council will collect information about the conservation area (such as the number of planning applications) through an annual survey. This will allow us to measure the condition of the conservation area at that time. Over time, this will allow us to tell whether the condition is improving.

Where can I view the conservation area management plans?

Currently, there are two conservation area management plans, which are available to download below:
