Conservation Area Appraisals

Lancaster City Council recently published the final version of the Lancaster Conservation Area Appraisal.

The Lancaster Conservation Area results from the merger of several smaller conservation areas in and around the City Centre.   Because of the size and diverse nature of the area covered, a Character Area approach was adopted by The Architectural History Practice and Taylor and Young who undertook the appraisal on behalf of the City Council.  To view the  reports of the individual character areas please click on the links below.
