Conservation areas

Ellingham Conservation AreaConservation areas are places of special architectural or historic interest that need protecting.

If you live in a Conservation Area you may need planning permission before undertaking work such as:

  • altering a building
  • demolishing a building
  • felling a tree or removing branches

The Broads is lucky to have a large number of Conservation Areas which are kept under regular review. It also has more than 270 listed buildings including a number of important wind mills and wind pumps that have a deep association with the landscape.The designation offers control over demolition of buildings, extensions, cladding, roofs, garden buildings, satellite dishes and works to trees.
